3. Hubby moved the birdbaths to mow the lawn. I snapped a shot of Lady Mallard standing where the birdbath was supposed to be.

4. Sunday afternoon we took a short drive. It looks like the fishing is good here.

Two Great Egrets and a Great Blue Heron. There were two more egrets out of the frame.

5. Hubby’s coworkers gave him a gift card to a nice little bistro. We used it Sunday evening.

    • Thanks for hosting. Seasons is a great meme. I’m impressed that you’re prepped for next week. I’d like to get caught up, can’t even think about getting ahead right now. My visiting time is limited for a couple of weeks – I’ll be sharing more about that soon.

    • Those two little blossoms and the azaleas are all that’s blooming now. The rhododendron bloomed earlier. I guess it was in a hurry! There are signs of buds forming on the yarrow and Asiatic lilies. The iris’ leaves are getting taller every day. I hope they don’t bloom while I’m out of town!

    • We tend to eat at the same places, so it was a treat to try something new. The colors and the lighting made for great atmosphere. They have outdoor seating, but it was a bit too chilly to be out there. We may have to go back when it’s warmer.

    • Yay for the Mockingbird finding your abode! We have a pair, and they’ve come to the feeder together the last couple of days. The Blue Jays have been around more. A lady robin excused everyone from the dinner table last night. She cleared the yard! Apparently, they got the message they weren’t welcome.
