This is my holiday plant, can't really call it a Christmas cactus as the sucker blooms all year and at the oddest times. Whatever it is pretty and I haven't killed it yet, which in itself is quite a feat. Of course, my sister tends to call me and reminds to water the sucker and dead-head the dead flowers.
As the weather gets nicer, the birds start flocking around the feeders.
This particular woodpecker has found his personal diner and comes every day.
The cardinals, both male and female have come twice, but being shy, it really takes some "stealth" to capture them on film, but I shall sooner or later.
This fence photo just caught my eye. Different view point and kinda interesting, don't ya think? It was our first time up at the ball field since last summer/Fall. Ground is still damp in spots but Clint loved being able to run around and of course, within seconds, found the sand pile.
King the Rock...as you can see, we still need hats and coats, it's not that warm yet.
And of course we have "critters" that make life interesting. Wood chuck who is fat and busy and then, wild turkeys in my front yard. This is most unusual but what the hell.
So today is Easter and I have 8 people for dinner. Best of all, I'm not really doing the cooking, Patrick is, he is fixing is ham and my role is quite simple and easy, peel, cook and mash potatoes. I believe Kel is fixing Brussels sprouts, veggie tray and dessert. We got shrimp to nibble on and I need to hide Easter eggs for Clint to find -- we colored them yesterday. This was a project he and Aunt Penny were gonna do but she is sick, so it fell to me.
Hope the weather warms up, this 40+ is not warm enough. Have a lovely day and please, take a moment and reflect on why we have this special day!
