The railing on our front deck.
The plum tree in our front yard. Fortunately it is staked!
This is the bird feeder hanging outside the window in the family room.
Meanwhile, this is the view from the back patio where my sister and brother-in-law are staying in Green Valley, Arizona. We were there, too, enjoying the sunset. We had just returned from a delightful hike in Madera Canyon and also saw this bird feeder.
Now we know why we never seen any of our state birds in our backyard. They are all wintering in Arizona in Madera Canyon! (They don't like our yard in the summer either.)
I counted at least 12 wild turkeys there, too.
and Mexican Blue Jays filling their tummies
along with one very happy humming bird!
One afternoon, I was sitting on my sister's patio when I heard a snuffling sound and expected to see someone's dog. Instead what should appear but this javelina, and in broad daylight no less. As soon as I noticed him (?), he went down into the nearby canyon, but just as I was telling my husband what I'd seen, the little guy returned. Thus, the photo! That's just a bit of our Arizona adventure. More soon, but not much knitting has been accomplished recently.
