ODDS AND ENDS


This one's for Jose. I saw it outside the post office just as he was just about to drive away. I asked him if I could take a photo and he said it was OK, but I didn't have time to get a better background. It has a palm frond roof with surf boards and diving stuff on top. That's California, Dude!






Rhoda came for a visit yesterday!













Look at the mess she made. She is twice the size of Henrietta and makes twice the mess. However, she is very tame and after watching the owner's sons catch her a couple of times I tried my magic on her and guess what ....I caught her quite easily and took her back home. I was quite proud of myself because she has a large beak and two strong scratching legs!! Guess I should have been a farmer's wife!





Supper time for the house finches and sparrows.

















We cut down this big old Yucca tree but decided the stump was just too big to try to remove. We hadn't decided what to do with it and now see what's happening. I guess it's just not going to give up.

It is true that plants do regenerate limbs. People only generate certain organ parts but so far not limbs. I like the chicken.

I think you've missed your 'calling,' Chris! I wonder if the MOTH would like to be a farmer in his retirement?

About trees - the neighbour who lives behind us is garden shears-happy. Whenever we are not looking, she reaches over our fence and chops down the branches from OUR tree that are hanging over HER garden. But the last laugh is ours -- as the tree branches just keep sprouting again. Now they are also growing THROUGH the fence and not just over it! Nature is difficult to master!

I have always been a fan of cars and bikes. That bug looks like a blast to cruise around in. Cool pic too.

I'm almost finished with my watercolor of Gudl's hens. It turning out OK, but I always have higher hopes for my paintings.
