Good morning and Happy Monday to everyone! Sitting out here on the deck with my coffee this morning, it is just so beautiful. We had thunderstorms last night, nothing major really, but we did get about an inch (2.5cm) of rain, and a bit of small hail so my petunias are flat as pancakes this morning. So I think it’s time for a bit of trimming and they will perk up quickly enough. My early morning gull was here for his breakfast, I really should give him a name since he is around all the time and he’s getting much braver now as well. I just have to think of a name I haven’t used in a while.
And…Sir George and Lady Pearl were back this morning and both acting normally, Sir George was as friendly as ever. That was so nice to see. As he landed on the feeder he whacked me on the head with his wing. Now if only that other gull will stay away. So we are back to normal once again here at Steve’s Country. Even Pocket, my chipmunk chased Runner, the squirrel, again this morning. Those two can sure run fast! Though it really doesn’t look normal to see a chipmunk chasing a squirrel. But that’s the way it is around here, normal isn’t always what it seems to be. As can be seen in today’s pics.
Like the above pic of the squirrel (this is Runner) on my bird feeder, what kind of normal squirrel would be doing that?
Or this male hairy woodpecker on another feeder eating sunflower seeds. Not exactly normal either. He does look happy though. And it does make things fun anyway! I hope you all have a marvelous Monday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
