A September Weekend ...

One of the "twins!"

This weekend was absolutely glorious ... in the low 70's, sunny and dry ... a weekend that I just don't want to end.

I guess my wild-friends felt that way too since they all made an appearance. The twin fawns and the turkey babies have really grown ... almost as big as their moms!

Millie, the bunny, is also getting big ... but, thankfully, not as quickly as the fawns and the turkeys.

My pond was covered today with a flock of bluejays ... a lot prettier and more colorful than the grackles ... and just as rambunctious!

I saw Rose, the hummingbird, earlier in the week. I wonder when she'll migrate. It is truly amazing that when ruby-throated hummingbirds migrate to Costa Rica they cross the Gulf ... some 500 miles ... non-stop!

My weekend was extra special because my son Michael came to visit. He cooked me an absolutely delicious dinner: pork chops in a brown sugar sauce, smashed red potatoes and green beans with a fresh-from-my-garden tomato and onion glaze. Yummy ....
