Birds-of-Prey have returned 🦅

8 years after some rich folks illegally poisoned the starlings in their yards the raptors have returned to Johnson City, Tennessee. 🙂

This Juvenile Cooper Hawk visited the neighbors dead tree while a Red Tail cruised high overhead. 🙂

Maybe I will have a sunset dinner guest a top the ‘hawk pole’ soon.

1980’s ‘photo hack’

 

Birds on the porch 🐦

Hacked photo! After a couple martinis 🍸, a long time ago, I got the scissors out and cut up 5 photos and glued the pieces to a blurry picture of a mocking Bird in flight sent it through the scanner and got an image+ 😉 ❕ A year later I got my first computer, in twenty five years, and immediately installed ‘PhotoScape’  ❕

❤️️Luv my back porch in July

I can shower in the cool rain, privately in July 😉

To much spent Tidy Cat got dumped in the garden and not enough Daddy Pete’s ❗️

Spring 2020 in N.E. Tennessee

It’s been a warm dry spring, and with COVID19, a long one too 😉

Hasta’s are doing well with a little help from the hose 😉 My Day Lilies have all but died off in the last five years due to improper Ph level of the soil {too much cat litter}

The Canna Lilies are still growing 1+ inches taller each day ❗️

Whilst they have a cosmic force driving them 🌌

Have ya ever sat on the Farm Porch and listened to the Corn Grow ❓🌽 🙂
