Hello hummingbird!


I put the feeder out, within an hour I had hummingbirds fighting to the right of who owns the feeder! The may be small, but they certainly can put a good battle up with each other!

The yellow rose of Connecticut?


Were you expecting Texas? This yellow rose was a surprise since my husband bought the rose bush two years ago from Walmart, not knowing what color it was and was not even sure if it was going to even grow! Well this year it decided to send out two flower buds and what a surprise to find out it was a large yellow rose, a color I do not have!

Concern for Derek Jeter's health


Watching the Yankee game on Saturday night, we noticed that Derek Jeter was not playing. He seemed to have the flu and was out two games. This prompted my daughter to ask if he feels o.k. and is he sick. She the decides she wants to make him a get well card and tells me "Don't worry, he will feel better! I am going to make him a card and tell him he needs to go to the doctor. That will make him all better!". Wow.....if it was only that simple.

When Derek Jeter was on the roster to play Sunday night, my daughter's first question was "Derek Jeter feels better?". With true concern for his health of course.

Turkey's hanging out on the corral




I happened to look out my back door and see some turkey chicks sitting on my back corral. I just missed a shot of the mom sitting right next to them, timing. The second picture which was not as good happened to catch a blue bird landing briefly on the opposite side.

Garden Tour in Old Lyme












There were six houses spread throughout the town and all were very unique. The house up against the tree is a small smoke house, they stopped using two years ago due to the tree encroaching on it. Lots of shade gardens, something I needed to see. I had to take a picture of my dream stone patio, if I only had that stone building talent!
