Signs and Symmetry

From my neck of the woods.

For those interested in Glen Eden Pilot Park  I did a post last May

The below collage was taken near a dog park

This next photo is part of the "art" on the NC Museum of Art trail
It looks like a maze but I don't think you can get inside

Dearest Auntie HiC!!

 The days are getting warmer here in Colorado, and the hummingbirds are plentiful❣️

Hey Mom, can I go outside?

I like to spend time outside, watching and trying to identify the different hummers.

During spring migration, Colorado has 11 different species of hummingbirds!
This is a good article about northern migration in Colorado. 

This is a pair of broad-tailed hummers. We’ve also seen black-chinned, and ruby-throated. Mom squeals with delight every time she recognizes a different species.

Mom says she also enjoys watching me watch the hummers, ha! We’re a wild and crazy bunch❣️

Quick, up-close peek of a black-chinned male. He sounds happy❣️

Love from your nephew

Dearest Nephew Kat
OMKs...Auntie is overJOYED with the video and photo of the hummers.  I could never in my wildest dreams imagine seeing that many varieties of hummers.  I do so thank you and Mom for sharing this wonderful sighting.  Sending loads of hugs.
Lovingly your Auntie HiC

Happy Tuesday Tale from the Trail


Hosted by Comedy Plus 

No one would be surprised to learn that I brake for all animals. Often I'm actually invited to come over to meet dogs on the trails, which makes me all kinds of  Happy. Last Thursday, May 13, I spied a gorgeous Golden Retriever walking his owner. As they approached me his owner asked, "would you like to meet Bentley"?  I said 100% yes. I love meeting new friends.  Bentley is a very large Golden Retriever and what beautiful fur. I said Bentley, you are most handsome.   His owner told me Bentley was a rescue. 

They think he was about 3 or 4 then. They have had him 3 years.  No one knew his story; however, I do know that he was very well mannered and gentle. When I went to pet him, he leaned on my leg.  Both of us had a case of the happies on the trail. I asked permission to take his photo.   Just as I snapped this picture Bentley had a great big YAWN!!

On a recent drive thru parts of an older neighborhood in Raleigh, I said Awww when I saw this very modern home.  As you can see, it takes up an entire block.  Tin roof...lots of industrial building materials.

As we made our way by the front...

Once again I said  Awww, 'look at the star appliques on the window'. 
All of a sudden, the stars changed colors.  It was a lamp/light or something electric. Check out the last photo.

Sunday Selfies


Timmy Turtle was about the size of your fist...very much alive just barely stuck his head out.  

The rabbit was in hopping in this yard in Leadmine Lake Neighborhood.  

He froze when he saw me
