This is a bad shot of the robin's nest by the shop. I had to do a quick snap...because the mother was squawking mad near by. You can see a bit of baby bird...there should be three. I will try again when they are older .
Our lawn is shaping up some of those thin spots filled in.
The field across the road was planted yesterday afternoon. It will be corn. Once the corn grows, I start to feel hemmed in , because I can not see as far. But the fields look good all smooth right now.
At 5 o'clock this morning the fellow who farms the corner field was at it. What a racket. I did get this shot at 6:15.
Yesterday , Ted and I went to Kokomo to pick up a few items, hummingbird feeder and garden light. You know things you want and maybe don't need. LOL. Stopped at Bob Evans for lunch. This is the chocolate bread they are serving with your meal. Ted chose banana bread, his all time favorite. This chocolate bread was good, tasted like cake more than bread. Even crumbled like cake. Probably didn't matter that we ate grilled chicken salads, after eating some of the breads. LOL
Today will be another wonderful day here in central Indiana. Ted is golfing this morning. Once he returns home , I will be having lunch with my youngest sister. Wishing all of you a fun day. XO
Your lawn looks good and so does that chocolate bread (cake)!ReplyDelete
I love bird watching, can't wait to see the photo's when they are bigger.
Hi Sylvia, I will keep an eye on the birds because the nest is so near the pond...I do not want them to fall out of the nest. I am surprised the eggs hatched with the mama bird flying off them every time we went in and out of the shop. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Everything is looking wonderful indeed! The robin's nest was an extra blessing just for you!ReplyDelete
Glad y'all had such a good day! Sounds like another one is in store for you! You two really have the retired life style down! A mixture of work and rest. Always some work to be done no matter our age. Just taking care of your property looks like a full time job to me! That is sure not your average yard and the view is incredible!
I'm having lunch with Ruth Ann today. Wish we could wiggle our noses and join you and your sister! If only I were a genie!
Linda, I think Ted and I have had major projects just about every year. We have postponed many. I am thankful the lawn is looking better but still not happy with our lawn care fellow. Our first one passed away. I miss that fellow. He was always a happy jolly kind of person. Hope you and Ruth Ann had agreat day together. Blessings, love ,xoxo, SusieDelete
I love the views from your house, Susie! How nice to be surrounded by farmland! Your property looks lovely!!ReplyDelete
That view is wonderful till the corn is tall...then that is all I see our front. LOL But I get my binoculars out to look at birds or animals. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Wow Susie, that is some view !ReplyDelete
Lots of work to prepare the soil, and can't help but admire those farmers.
Enjoy your sister time, sounds lovely.
Jo, I know the farmers were hopping around here...because of the predicted bad weather coming in....they wanted to get those crops out. I hope most of them did. I had not had lunch with my sister for a year. :( We just get busy and time flies. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Those little birds grow so fast! Will be fun to watch. Mmm I will have to try that chocolate bread, but the banana bread is good too!ReplyDelete
Hi Karen, Oh yes we most often get the banana bread, but I gave the chocolate a try. It was more like a dessert taste...but good. :):) I will watch those birdies. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
How sweet to see the bird nest. We saw a bluebird nest in a mailbox cubby tonight but couldn't see it well enough to see if there are eggs in it. The Mama flew when we walked by. That's a BIG field! Enjoy your evening my friend. Hugs, DianeReplyDelete
Diane, I have gotten wren and robin shots. They build lower nests. That robin built right at the shop door and it's always busy...so the mama was off the nest carrying on all the time...I am amazed the eggs hatched. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
How fun to see the little bird in the nest. Your property is so neat and beautiful. The chocolate bread would be so delicious. I hope you have a lovely evening. xoReplyDelete
Mildred, I am going to keep watching that nest. The little ones could fall out into the pond by the shop. That's a busy spot where the mama built that nest. That will be 3 more wonderful robins. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Don't you love those baby birds?! I don't have any here yet this spring.ReplyDelete
We don't have any Bob Evans this far north. I love to stop at them when we go south...that and Waffle House (I know- I know--a greasy spoon if there ever was one). lol
Hope you have a good week, Susie- xo Diana
Diana, I like having breakfast or lunch at Bob Evans. We used to go there lots when we worked. It's always clean and the staff is friendly. Their food is really good to me. I have never eaten at a Waffle House. I think there is one in Kokomo. I will try to watch those baby birds everyday. I have news in my next post. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
That chocolate bread looks Yummy, Susie. I wish I had a piece to go with my coffee right now haha. I would love to see the corn field across the way when it starts to grow, that must be a sight! It amazes me how the farmers grow their produce for us. The field looks good now, and you can tell all the hard work that went into it. And Ted's lawn looks fantastic!ReplyDelete
