Our World, My World

 Happy Monday everyone!

 I hope everyone is feeling well, taking care. We recently did our food shop getting most of what was on our shop list. Hubby and I are well, taking our walks locally. Sometimes we see others walking on the fire roads. Most of the time it's just us, the trees and the birds. 

Around our yard, hubby has cleaned the leaves out of the ponds. The rabbit statues are placed in their spot in the garden. We are seeing a lot of frog eggs in one pond. 



 Living next to a forest, we are constantly having leaves fly into our yard.  Our bunnies do not care about the carpet of leaves.  BTW, I have been seeing at least 2 live bunnies in our yard. A chipmunk too!


A real bunny on the side of the fence.. baby bunnies will be coming soon.



A look at our local Great Blue Herons on their nest. These are views from the local fire road near our home.





A pretty sky, a peaceful and calm day in the neighborhood.


 Some scenes from our fire road walk.  A few more trees came down, we had to climb over them or walk around. We have been having some windy days.



 A view looking up, from our fire road walk through a pine tree forest.



 This hawk has been hanging around the yard, it look large maybe a female?  I was guessing at the id, a Red-shouldered Hawk.  The same day I saw a smaller hawk on the side of our yard, maybe a Cooper's or the Sharp-shinned hawk. I was not able to get a photo of the smaller hawk.





My wish for you, stay calm and healthy.  Enjoy life and be happy!

  1. Beautiful bright yellow flowers to brighten up the day. You can enjoy the nature around you without having to worry about social distancing. Over here, there are road blocks to discourage us from venturing out except to buy essentials and only 1 person from each household is allowed out. Stay healthy and stay safe.

I will be trying out the new seniors only hour tomorrow morning at WM and hope the shelves have something on them.. we are getting low on supplies

  14. Very pretty hawk pictures! I miss seeing the two hawks nesting on my office building. I wonder if they have eggs yet. My husband saw two toads on our patio Friday night. That's the day it was so warm (78) and gnats were everywhere! Today we are back to freezing weather (just around 32 here). Stay healthy and safe!

  22. The heron in the fir tree (left photo) is GORGEOUS. That one needs to be framed and hung.

    I am starting to see a little color in the trees along Cedar Hill Rd. (out my craft room window). The red maples and the Bradford pear are starting. Way down the road I can see a forsythia. YAY --- spring might actually be on the way for real.

  32. I'm waiting for my first bunny. We had snow this morning. Not likely to appear quite so soon, though who knows?

    Stress level is high here and viruses rising exponentially. Our governor locked us down today -- essential services only. Stay at Home till April 13. No egg hunt with the little ones this year, I'm afraid. But that's OK. Rick is getting groceries and I am staying in with Lizzie, who is blissfully unaware of everything but lunch, nap, and good girl treats. I envy her.

  55. Mmmm, I'm loving the fresh air in all your photos. I'm finding that one of the upsides with fewer people wandering about in their cars. We're noticing a few more birds, and different ones, visiting our yard. I hope they're finding food back there. They can definitely find things for their nests. Thanks for the look-see of your part of the world, Eileen, especially of the daffodils in bloom. They always give me a smile. :-) Take care.
