Was quiet, but a good day.

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Since it was Columbus day I didn't have to exercise the Border Collies. I did chat with their owner later in the day though. She is such a nice person.

We still have Tomatoes on the vines. We have 5 big Tomatoes left. This one looks so odd, just had to get a pic of it.


Our Grape Tomatoes are coming to an end, but the Vine Tomatoes are plentiful yet.


My Hubby made tacos tonight, and of course he used our Tomatoes that he threw in along with Onions, and Bell Peppers. Oh, was it delicious! Juicy too!

I was taking pics of the Sparrows in our backyard.








As I was taking pics of the Sparrows I noticed a different type of chirp behind me. I was looking all over, then looked up, and high on a wire was the Mockingbird. I swear this bird keeps tabs on me. It started singing, so I sang back. We had a lovely conversation.







Then a Raven flew overhead, and scared the bird, and it flew to the top of our pine tree. I'm sure it is the same Raven that teases our dogs.



Later on I took the dogs out in back for their potty break, and noticed a pretty sunset. Not sure where the clouds came from since all day is was clear, but I'm not complaining.






I looked towards the west, and saw the Moon.


And I can't forget Loki. He was very talkative tonight.

    I don't think I've ever seen a mockingbird... wonder if they live in Illinois? Are Raven's the same as crows? We have crows and they are a nuisance, Ozzie loves to chase them into the next yard. They are supposed to be very intelligent.

    Hi there back at you! Your beautiful photos are a mini break in the day! We love birds too but haven't been making the time to get out with our binoculars and book. But finally, I've been doing a cou[le of the projects I wanted to do and it feels like a blessing. I'll try to get some photos online this coming Sunday. Have a wonderful day! emoticon Renee

    Loki is pretty. Nice bird shots, how did you learn the different breeds? I have a card with names & pictures, but it sure is hard to figure out when they are flying.

    On Saturday I started cleaning out some of our tomato vines. Now that the weather has cooled the vines are looking nice but I cut them back so all of the energy could go to ripening the tomatoes still on the vine. It looks so much nicer out there.
