Meet the Locals...



My children have been on spring break for the past week. Today is their last day, so tomorrow we will all be back to our routine. I am substituting for one of the recess attendants. I hope it is a nice day, weather-wise, since I will be outside for several hours! The photos in this post are from Haiku's walks near our home (but not all on our property) during the past few days. The last one was taken from the dining room window this evening. He started moving quickly once he noticed my daughter leaning through the window to take his picture, so it is a bit blurry, but he was a pretty fellow so I'm including it despite the lack of crisp focus.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am so enjoying all your photos and love the locals as well. Makes me so homesick for the country when I see sights like these.

Popped over from Cate (Kerrdelune)'s blog. I love the idea of your Sunday Stroll. It was nice to meet your "neighbours". I'm sure I'll be back.

Love your locals! We have Cardinals and Blue Jays, squirrels and chipmunks and an occasional possom in our backyard. Found your blog via Gracous Hospitality, and am enjoying your posts and assorted photos. Nancy

Maudie looks like a lion getting a drink in a small desert oasis! LOL

That's a lovely collection of critters. :)

Lisa, Thank you for visiting! :)

Greenishlady, Thank you kindly. I'll have to check your blog out in return!

Rosemary, We have some of those "locals" too. The Cardinals and Blue Jays are big and showy, and sometimes the brightest thing in the landscape... so I enjoy them, though they can be bullies at the birdfeeders! *grin*

Karla, She probably thinks she is! lol!

Nancy, Thank you. We like them too! :)
