Thank you to those who agreed with me that my red posies from John were some sort of begonia. Alas, we were wrong. Very. They are, in fact, New Guinea Impatiens, not impatience as I once thought; impatiens = the correct spelling. Depending on your source, they either do or don't like sunshine. Everyone seems to agree that they like a lot of water. Thank you for all the information! I appreciate
the help. ☺
You can see the flower baskets hanging outside in the header photo. It was a much warmer day. They are back inside these days because the weather has turned chilly again. Birds seem to be highly attracted to these orange red flowers, I have even had birds try to fly through the French doors. Silly things. Can't they see the mullions? Here's where I'll get you to agree or disagree with my identifications. I believe this bird is an oriole. If you only knew all that I went through to capture this terrible shot.
I am guessing that the bird above is a warbling vireo. I have a better picture...
Okay all this ID stuff is for the birds...
Let's see...what can I rattle on about? You'd think that, after a week goes by, I would have a lot to say. Nope. It gets worse every week.
Last week, when we had a few warm summer-like days, John and I enjoyed a picnic at the lake. Picnic is too fancy a description; we had a fast-food lunch at the lake. It was so pretty that day... the water was choppy, the breeze was refreshing, and the blues were beautiful.
(Speaking of blue, I was reading at Temple Grandin's site that some people find reading a stark white page very challenging. I am wondering how people find reading a blue page as I am having trouble finding just the right, light enough shade.)
Getting back to the lake, it was just the thing to do after a rather long, chilly spring. Where would you run off to for a quick, less than an hour, getaway?
Goodness. Am I already completely out of things to say? Wait, no, I'll add that last night for supper we had the most delicious
Firefly Crunch Salad right here. (I have also pinned it on my Salads Folder.)
A happy week to you and a Happy Victoria Day weekend to my Canadian friends and family. (Memorial Day is the following weekend for us in the US.) Hope that the weather moderates for us all. ☺
P.S. Anyone ever had a pop-up with this message appear over your post while trying to edit it? I am documenting because sometimes groogle needs a screen shot. The pop-up won't stay put when I want to take a screen shot, but will not allow me to make an edit. Always something in Blogdom!
