Spring In May??????

Our weather this week has been nothing but outstanding. Our lows at night about 45-52F and highs around the low 70's. This kind of weather and my feeling 90% better has Sandy and I outside by 8am doing lawn, edging and raking leaves. We work until around 2pm each day and then set outside in the evening admiring our work. The birds and squirrels seem to be happy too as they have really entertained us singing and fighting over the one feeder. We just may have to get another one so there is room for all of them except of course Mr. Squirrel who really plays havoc with the feeder.

Here he is preparing for his launch on to the feeder. (Click photo to enlarge) Here he is getting ready to laquch on the feeder.




As you can see we have cleared out the area next to our home on wheels. The grass and small bushes were cleared from under each of these three trees. We must have raked thousands of sweet gum balls along with the leaves. We have about six piles similar to the two in the foreground. The far tree in the left back ground is what the three trees looked like before clearing out the under brush. The building in the background is where we connect our fresh water hose.....about 200ft. Today was my morning to weed wack the four culverts and trim the hedges around my BIL’s home.


In the evenings it is so peaceful setting out side in the shade watching the critters go about gathering their meals. We've had a light breeze that just makes you feel good all over. The crows are really cawing,  I wonder if a hawk may be near by. In a distance you can hear the roar and see the concourse of a jet plane.

Here is just some of our entertainment around the home.


This woodpecker was the most entertaining. I was intrigued by the way he hung off the feeder.


This is good therapy for one at the end of a busy work day.

Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
