My New Bird Feeders

My grandson, "Brother" and I went to Tractor Supply the other day
and he saw a bird feeder he wanted me to buy.

It was on sale so that was a good thing!
And I think they like it!!!
I have also been looking for a bird feeder like I had before I moved.
I left it at the house we sold.
I have really missed it too.

I found one at Amazon almost like it.
It holds 11 lbs of seed but as you can imagine
that doesn't last long here!
I think my little birdies like the feeder!

I think my Grosbeaks like it too!
The males won't let the female come and eat
so she sits on top and waits on her turn!
So far I have seen 7 male Grosbeaks and 3 females
at one time.
Some of my birds like the leftovers on the ground!
Some just sit and wait.

 The woodpecker likes the old feeder!
When he comes everyone flies away!

The Female Grosbeaks can hold their own when
fighting the woodpecker.
Looks like she is sneaking around!
I guess you can tell that I am still having fun with my birds!

Sweet Teen

What Can I say?
There are no words!
If you are new to my blog, this is our oldest granddaughter, "Sweet Teen" & her date!
If you have followed my blog then you have watched her blossom over the last 6 years!
She is a good girl and she is as beautiful inside as she is out!
We are very proud of her!

Springtime In Helen

We took a short trip over in the mountains to Helen, Ga.!
Come along with me!!!!
 I NEED this birdhouse!

Of course I LOVED this flag!

There are not words to tell you how beautiful this tree was.
I don't have a clue what it is so if you know, please tell me!
Since I posted this, my friend Diane S. told me that she thinks this
is a Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree!
"Sweet Hunter" doesn't know it yet,
but this is on my list of

This is a close up view of the blooms on that tree!
