Birds, Rainbows & more

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences

I am sharing another hodge-podge of photos from the past week..Some shots for Tex's Good Fences and a few Skywatch shots.. And of course some birds are thrown in, just because I love them.


My favorite backyard bird..the Eastern Bluebird..they can also be seen all along our back country roads.


Here is a baby Tufted Titmouse in my Weeping Cherry tree. The momma or poppa was just above and you can see the fledgling is begging for food.


 Hubby and I were happy to see this rainbow on our way to our favorite ice-cream place in New Freedom, Pa..It is just a short ride on the back country roads..


I thought the photos and scenes were perfect for both Tex's Good Fences meme and for my Skywatch Friday post..





The moon on July 4th, I took this shot while we were watching the fireworks display.


I had to share some more shots of the fireworks.. July 4th fireworks viewed from Jacobus, Pa.. You can see the moon to the right of the fireworks.




I hope you enjoyed my post and photos

Thanks to Tex @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday!   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.
