Saturday Symmetry and a Squirrel

 This home is located along one of my 1 1/2 mile EMW (early morning walks) routes

Full disclosure:  A landscape architect lives here.

My roving photo journalist Janice sent me this email and photo

I have a suet feeder hanging on a shepherd’s hook in back natural area.  Check out the acrobatic and determined squirrel enjoying it!  He didn’t even run away when I opened the back door!  He may finish the duet cake before he stops 😂

Janice and I both wondered how he can digest upside down.

Happy Tuesday


Below are a few things that make me happy
I was over the moon happy to see Cody on April 23. He had been MIA all week.  I needed my Cody fix and of course I worry when I don't see him.
Bottom left he sees me at the corner, as always got up to greet me

I thank Janice my roving photo journalist for sending a photo of her Red verbena.  I made a miraculous return from last fall's hibernation.

Awww Monday and Sparks with Pup

 Thank you to our   

Host Comedy Plus 

 Dear Auntie HiC
Guess what!?!

Mom bought a new mower! She already had a battery operated Greenworks, but she got a self-propelled mower.

Mom & Dad do all the yard work around here, and after her recent back issues, she had to find an easier way to mow. She says the hills are butt-busters, and the John Deere is too heavy for front yard.
Look at her go❣️

Mom thinks she should have named me Semper Fi, which would have been appropriate since Mom’s a USMC Brat!
The bubble print is kinda small:  
"Semper Fi: Mom you are a funny girl.  As long as you call me to dinner, I don't care what you call me"!

❤️ Pup

OH MY DOGS Pup Mom has a little lean green machine to take care of business and best of all it isn't scary and loud like traditional mowers!! Mom being a USMC brat makes you a USMC grandbrat!!! BOL BOL BOL  Auntie is the wife of USMC-former reservist.  We 3 should start a club!! BUTT all this being said I am most happy that Mom will no longer have a Pain in her USMC brat tushie ever again!
Loving Auntie HiC

Feeling Ducky

Crazy right?  Recently on our ride about I spotted the blue duck on the mail box and six in the yard.  No signs to explain.  I googled many different ways to check for a possible reason one would have blue ducks.  I found several businesses with blue ducks in their logo.  Anni found a site about  a blue Swedish duck.   She wondered if perhaps these people raised them.  This home is smack in the middle of the city. It was once owned by a lawyer turned NC senator who once ran unsuccessfully for President, hint his initials were J.E.

 I found this blue duck and description on line.  Evidently they are popular. 
I think the ones I saw were duck decoys for the water.  Note the wedge on the bottom.   
The wooden duck is a wood sculpture that is much in demand because of its cute shape and suitable for all ages, Beside that, it's also suitable for both indoor and outdoor decoration. The wooden duck is a perfect gift that you can give to your loved ones. All of our ducks are hand carved and painted by our team.
