Good morning to everyone and Happy Sunday! Well, here we are beginning another new week and I’m hoping for a warmer week than the last one. Watching snowflakes falling yesterday was not really a lot of fun. I am glad that they did not add up to any kind of snow depth, just lazy snowflakes floating to the snow on the ground. Wow, there were hardly any birds yesterday, most of the day there really were no birds out there at all.
Some chickadees and nuthatches kept showing up now and then, plus a few redpolls and the 2 purple finches. Plus Baxter and Betty. Jasper was here for a while so we had a talk. “How have you been lately Jasper?” Loud chip. “Oh, Chase is keeping you busy. Yes, I have been watching the 2 of you running. You don’t seem to get tired easily.” Loud chip. “Oh, you do get tired but you can’t let Chase know that. Hmm, that is good thinking.”
Chip. “Yes, it has been a long winter. Have you started your spring cleaning?” Loud chip. “Oh, Jasmine is helping you with that? That is nice.” Loud chip. “Jasmine keeps throwing out your collections?” Chip. “Well, it might be time to throw out the old peanut shells, you can always get new ones.” Chip. “Okay, they have sentimental value, but 679 is a lot, where will the babies sleep if you keep all those shells?”
Loud chip. “Oh, sorry, having trouble figuring out which part will be the baby room?” Chip. “Well, Jasmine probably knows better than you about these things.” Chip. “Oh, that is what she said? Sorry.” Chip. “Yes, here is a nice big one. You must have worked up a good appetite running after Chase today so eat as much as you want.” Chip. “You are welcome.”
Off he goes carrying another big peanut. I hope he is taking that one back to Jasmine. It is nice when Jasper stops by for some chipping. Top photo is a bright orange geranium. Thank you all for stopping by to read today, I hope you enjoy the sunny flowers, have a wonderful, sunny Sunday and God bless!
