Now I have to start a new sentence because my awesome 70+ momma is recuperating from double knee replacement surgery. She ROCKS! We also think she gained back a bit of height since she WAS 4 feet 9 1/2 inches tall at her tallest! So right before we left to go up there, I chatted with Dad, and he asked me to bring up my camera because a large number of very cool birds were taking up residence around their feeders. Here they are in all their beautiful color!
Mr. and Mrs. Purple Finch (YES, They are more red than purple: NO! I dont' know why they are called purple finches!)
Find the sparrow and dove!

One of these days, I am going to have these lovely birds hanging out at my feeders! Just wait until I finish landscaping outside our new addition....
New Addition??? Yep! I am just about ready to share with you all the craziness we went through during the very long and COLD winter! Coming up next: our new addition!
