|We are so thankful for our Mothers!|
My Mother (on right) and my other Mother (left)!
They have both been through a rough year.
We are so blessed!
Thank you for all the prayers!
Happy Mother's Day!!!
Lord, help us to PLAN, PREPARE, & PLANT what you would have us to. Help us to WEED out of our lives what should not be there. Lord, help us to grow through you in our relationships, our attitudes, and our lives, always being in your will. Help us to always walk with you. Let us always be thankful and content. Amen.

|I've been married to this man almost 35 years and when it |
comes to fishing or hunting he is serious!!
He's telling me here that I can't catch a fish with the camera
in my hand! lol
|He's putting new line and hooks on his and says mine is fine!!!|
|When he gets the cigar out you know he is serious now!!!|
|I'm standing on the bank fishing but with camera in hand|
watching the geese and taking pictures!
See the babies?
|He wades out pretty far and doesn't talk except to the fish!!!|
(the ones that get away! lol)
|I did get hung up one time and pulled my hook and sinker off|
and he had to come in and fix it!
I think I messed up his concentration!!!

|This is just a little part of the town of Helen, Ga.|
|I love this little bridge!|
|This is a quilt store.|
|Loved this bed.|
|Isn't that the truth?|
|This is a Christmas store that is open all year long!|
|This is outside another Christmas store that I used to love!|
But it is closed now!
Wonder if they would give me this Santa?
|This is a bench made from a telephone pole!|
I LOVE it!
|Love this old house!|
I think the sign says 9 acres/600,000.00!
It is right in town!

|After 2 full days and nights of rain, rain, rain....|
We finally saw the sunshine today!
When this little guy came sneaking out I thought the storm was over.
|The fighting for the bird seed had started.|
|My 4 little chipmunks came out!|
Even this squirrel figured out a way to get in to this
squirrel proof bird feeder!
They haven't bothered it before but they did today!
It is wired together so he can't get the lid off now!
|So "Sweet Hunter" put up our new umbrella|
and said he wanted to have
White beans, slaw, macaroni and cheese, fried potatoes and cornbread!
And it was yummy!
|After dinner we filled up all the feeders and assumed the rain was over.|
|Then it came.....Rain, Hail, lightening, winds!|

|This is what I started out with.|
|Just a plastic bowl and lid.|
|And then...thanks to my Mother, I now own a real bird bath!!!|
The crazy thing is that I had several over in the country but sold them
so I wouldn't have to move them!
|It didn't take long before they discovered it!|
|I just loved this picture!|
Female Grosbeak and a Cardinal!
|I haven't had many red birds until the last couple of days!|
|I think they are just beautiful!|
|I think this is some kind of finch.|
I will tell you this. They are not scared of me at all!
|Another picture of a female grosbeak!|
We think they look like a baby hawk.
|My Mother has about 100 of these yellow finches!|
I only have a couple of them.
He is on a bag full of Niger Seed!
My BFF Vicki told me that they love it and they do!
|I can't leave without showing you one of my Male Grosbeaks!|
So far I have seen 7 males and 3 females all at one time!!!
Still loving this birdwatching!!!

|My grandson, "Brother" and I went to Tractor Supply the other day|
and he saw a bird feeder he wanted me to buy.
|It was on sale so that was a good thing!|
|And I think they like it!!!|
|I have also been looking for a bird feeder like I had before I moved.|
I left it at the house we sold.
I have really missed it too.
Some of my birds like the leftovers on the ground!
Some just sit and wait.
The woodpecker likes the old feeder!
When he comes everyone flies away!
The Female Grosbeaks can hold their own when
fighting the woodpecker.
Looks like she is sneaking around!
I guess you can tell that I am still having fun with my birds!
