Chippy the chipmunk awakens from a winter nap to strut his stuff.

Hooray for whole kernel corn and a seed mixture.

Bumblebees are always a welcome sight in my garden.

Oh, dear…it is an invasion.

Years ago I gave up my fight to thwart the ever clever food instincts of squirrels. Life is too short for a fruitless struggle and one the squirrels continually won. Now everyone lives and eats in harmony.

A morning dove suns itself in my maple tree.

Regardless of the above, it is my 16-year old West highland white terrier who gives me the most joy when he is sunning himself in the backyard.

Thank you for dropping by.

  1. What a delightful series of photographs! I come from outdoorsy folk (my grandfather was a birder with the Department of the Interior), and I have good friends who photograph. I enjoy these arts and traits vicariously. So thank you for these!

    Thank you, too, for reading from my blog.

      1. You are welcome! Yes, I know what that is like, as I live in a rural part of Newfoundland with tuns of wildlife roaming free.
