My Backyard

I must be getting old. There are bird seed packets all over my backyard attracting the birds. I spent an hour just sitting on the deck watching them visit.
Of course I also had my long lens with me.
And my bird book. :)

He was way up at the top of the tamarack tree.

Deck Ballet and Other Fun at G&G's

The newly stained deck before the arrival of new deck furniture was the perfect stage for a couple of ballerinas who were visiting Friday afternoon.

When the furniture arrived, the boxes it came in became the new attraction giving Grandma time to start putting all the pieces together.

The day ended with a rather late supper and two hungry ballerinas who ate so well they got coconut milk ice bars for an evening treat.

Then Eva discovered the tape measure and of course Grandpa had to measure the girls. I asked Norah how tall she was. She showed me three fingers. :)

Let summer begin!!
