"raindrops on roses"...IT'S RAINING!!


                                           "raindrops on roses" and wet "whiskers on kittens",

                                   I really do love "bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens".

                                                 These are a few of my very favorite things!


(Thank you!!  Thank you!!)

There are five thistle feeders hanging in this tree and the lesser goldfinches are all over them.  They're such beautiful little birds.  I have a few all year, but in the fall they're all over my trees and feeders.  
I have three bird baths in my back yard and I put fresh water in them every afternoon.  The birds seem to know when I do that because all of a sudden there are lots of birds coming to the bird baths, drinking and bathing.
I love birds!

I was in the front yard watering and a lady in a bright yellow mustang with a black convertible top stopped and told me she loved my house and she drives by all the time, just to look at it.  That was so nice of her and especially to stop to tell me.  I know of a couple of other people who drive by, when they're in the neighborhood, just to look at my house.  That is very special to me and makes me wish I would do a lot more trimming and deadheading.  Oh, and I LOVED her car!

In this photo, you can't see it, but in that big space between the windows, I painted a pink crepe myrtle tree and a little bird flying to it. (I'll show it, later.)

This is my garage door and I painted my cat, Mr. Smith and a pot of blue plumbago.  On the left, there is a kitty door in the middle of the pot plant.
