Day 163 - 11th June 2013 - More birds and Lady Slipper

Up a little early this morning. The sky is fire engine red through the trees - "red sky at dawn sailors be warned", in for some rain today. It's like an orchestra in around the property as well - can hear all the birds singing their songs. Maybe the weather will hold off until I get to work. Have to go back to town this evening for our AGM, I really hate leaving once I get home, but it shouldn't be a long evening.
Another Monday went by - thank goodness. Normally I don't think it's wise to wish your days to past quickly as it just ages us that much sooner, but yesterday was one of those days. I did accomplish some things, but then went on to waste several hours trying to get something else to work - ugh I hate when technology doesn't run right! Home to a fast supper, Lexi got balsam in her fur - Larry's solution was to "trim it out with the scissors" I got more on me than she did. She ended up with a bath but needed one anyway, she' s really dry and I've got medicated shampoo for just the thing and then I was off to exercise class. With the new sound system tweaked it's great, of course that doesn't mean I like going any better, but variety is the spice of life.
 The Song Sparrows are always singing  but lately aren't posing where I want them too.
 Still lots of Lady Slippers through the woods.
 I couldn't resist one more pic of the cute little Swamp Sparrow.
 One of my favourites that are always in and out of the feeders - Red Breasted Nuthatch.
 One of our pair of Starlings - they aren't so bad, kind of grow on you.
There she is guarding her nest.

Enjoy  your day!

  1. There us something about the lady slipper which mesmerizes me. I see dozens along the road and if walking stop and gaze for what seems like hours. It must have been a balsam night as a friends grandson had his hands full as well. Just drinking my coffee and a morning visit to the garden only to be greeted by three hummingbirds. I gave up on feeders when I realized they like the honeysuckle bushes and solomons seal at first I was hurt and wondered why are they not going to the feeders lol. Have an awesome day
