Cell phone photos
my thoughts for today
Saw two black snakes today! I got my hummingbird feeders out! I only have two right now, hopefully soon I will be able to get a couple more. I’d love to get a couple of handheld feeders! And, more flowers athat attract hummingbirds and butterflies! Can never have enough!!
This (above) might be better…now, do I have any empty spice container? And does it really work? Won’t hurt to try, right?
I don’t buy the hummingbird nectar, I just use sugar water. The recipe is 1 cup of sugar for every cup of water, or 1:1 ratio. Really, really sweet, but the hummingbirds love it!
Anyway, here’s some photos I took with my cell phone today!
Hope you enjoy!!
Black Rat Snake, the smaller of the two I saw today!
Peony, starting to open up!
Blue skies, white clouds, and grape vine! It won’t be too long ’til I have grapes… and strawberries!
A yellow Iris flower, the only one I have at the moment
I white Iris flower, ready for take off!
Another white Iris, opening up
I even got in the pool for a minute. Needed to clean it and siphon some of the water out, as it was too high! The pool vacuum is supposed to come tomorrow. Can’t wait to get it clean so I can actually swim! Besides the water feeling like ice, it will be ready to go! I can stay in it for a little bit…
I have to tell you…most parts of the country are seeing some kind of partial opening and people are everywhere! One thing I don’t get is, in New York, the beaches are open but you can’t go swimming! How much sense does that make? Yeah, I’m going to the beach and I’m just gonna sit there… no thanks! So glad I do have my pool! Most community pools aren’t opening as I understand it. Some of the decisions that have been made don’t make sense! I’ll get into that at a later date, once I’ve kinda wrapped my head around everything and – hopefully – made a little sense of it all!
