Afternoon Sun

I really didn't know what to title this post--I have such a hard time with titles--I'm just not that creative when it comes to them. Right then, on to my afternoon in the sun. It is an absolutely glorious day! Bright sun and warm weather. Right now it is scrumptious 79 degrees in my backyard. You have no idea how it makes me feel to have the sun out. Or, you might. You may be a sunshine type a person too. But I truly become a nicer person, a more relaxed person when the sun comes out. Since it is such a beautiful afternoon H decided to take Tuck the Turtle out for a bit of a grassy stroll. While out she hollered at me to come on out too because the woodpecker was out. Oh, absolutely! I grabbed my camera and went to town. Not only did I get one, I got two. If I am correct and by no means am I an ornithologist,  one is a female red-bellied woodpecker and the other is a male yellow-bellied sapsucker. And of course, some of our other furries came out too. But I only got pics of Bunny. Moxie and Bella were too busy roaming around.
 Male yellow bellied sapsucker.
 Isn't he a beauty!
Tuck is happy to be out
 Bunny doesn't look to interested in Tuck here. Why should she, he is giving her his rear end.
 But she does here--sort of
 H liked this shot. She said it looks artsy. I had to snicker at that.

 Female red-bellied. I love this picture. I really think I am liking my new camera!
 New growth on my cactus.
Blooms on my lemon tree. My Aunt gave it to me. It came from my Grandmother's old place. Or what I rather lovingly call The Homestead. I am really hoping that it doesn't die. And if it doesn't die, will then produce some lemons ;)
I do so home you guys are having some sunshine in your neck of the woods.


  1. Wow, you got some great shots of those birds! The turtle and kitty look happy to be outside. Thanks for visiting my blog! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. No sunshine here today - it's grey all the way.
