Robin's Nest

It's that time of the year when Robin's are willing to 
show their recklessness to the world.  You would 
think that a being with the skills they possess in construction
would also choose the best building sites. Not so, they will build 
a nest on the top of a tire on your car while it is parked. The nest 
above is so close to the ground that it would brush the top of a
cat's head.  I found a nest blown from a tree and placed in on the side
porch, in less than twenty minutes there were two eggs laid in it.

Sunny Morning In KY


Well, actually it's raining in KY right now but, I know that will change shortly. The rain has given me a little time to make a post and catch up on some blog reading.

Catkins on Wild Cherry

A catkin that is just beginning to start the bloom. 

From small, tightly closed buds to magnificent
tiny flowers.

A wild cherry tree is an explosion of beauty. And no,
there are no edible cherries on a wild cherry tree
for human consumption.

Holstein Calf ??

I do get into town every week and as this is a rural community
I was not too surprised to think this was a Holstein calf in the
back of a small car. But, as I got closer I realized it was a really
big dog ! There are many strange and funny sights on the
highways today, keep your camera ready.
