Got geese?

Its almost spring! Hooray! OK its a few weeks from now but who cares! 
Anyways here's some more spring related pics of a couple of geese perusing the neighborhood in I think 2018. Not exactly top notch imagery but still fun. They remind me of lawn ornaments only they fertilize people front lawns. 😜😁 These were taken in my neighbourhood and they just went from house to house eating the finest lawn grass. They seem well mannered and adjusted. There were a few times where they seem to beg the neighbours across the street for food. I think it was my dad's fault. He did hand feed them a few times.

Not sugar plum coated.

This was actually taken in the early spring earlier in the year but its still perfect for this time of year I guess. That is if you really like the cold. I don't. I would rather be seeing palm trees then this out of my bedroom window. But speaking of bedroom windows this was simply snapped via ancient old digital camera. I think its one of my best so far using this simple tool. You have to be at the right place and the right time for this type of shot. It would definitely make a nice window dressing for your computer, that is if you like that sort of thing.

a Meetso in a box

OK the cold weather is here. Time to retreat and migrate if your a bird. Just wish I was a bird and or I could migrate. Or hibernate if you're a bear. Meetso has the right idea. Time to hang out in a nice warm box Garfield style with a cushion of catnip to make it all better and go away. Only a few more months till spring left. Can't get here soon enough. Of course Florida would take care of all of it for good. 😉

Welcome to the mushroom forest.

Found this interesting little forest of mushrooms last season growing all around a former beloved old peach tree we had to cut down a few years ago. As always, a little behind on things such as this "show and tell" thing. 
Oh well, enjoy. 😊




Sorry the quality couldn't be any better but I can only do so much with this old digital camera.

The Safflower of my eye

Last season of course I decided to plant some safflower seeds in one of many pots we have here. Mostly they contain oleanders but a few have some various citrus trees and even a few fig trees. Nice and not so nice when indoors in the garage. Try looking for hiding pet doves that don't wanna go in just yet. That's where we keep them when the weather is just too cold. 
So yeah I thought I was going to end up with some beautiful orange flowers but instead of orange I got a whole lot of yellow. OK I don't mind too much but they look a lot like dandelions so why bother. But in the end I did get some more seeds to feed my doves. I guess they come in more colours then just orange. Oh well.

Jurassic Bone Marrow

Yet another red neck folk art creation of my dad's whimsy. It use to be a perfectly normal porous rock decorating our humble little fish pond. But one to two years ago maybe more, can't remember exactly, my dad decided to make it in to this using some cement that was laying around. Something that looks to me like a giant soup bone. I don't know why he needed to do that but on a whim I guess the need was there. It could have been possibly his love of things drum stick or any bone cooked with meat still on it. I know he always has to be the first to grab those. Its the cave man in him I guess. 
It is pretty cool to look at even though I still have mixed feelings about it. I could plant or someone else could plant some nice pinkish flowers in the hole to represent fresh marrow in a bone? Who knows? So far my dad only has planted some random tulips in the hole thinking they would come back every year (but they didn't) but I think much smaller flowers would do much better anyways.

Big Poofy Garlic Flowers

Here we have some more of those last years summer pics for your eye's enjoyment. 
Not normally considered pleasant smelling whether the flowers or the flavouring bulbs, but some nice big poofy garlic flowers over looking the junk in our little back yard. But then beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all. Normally these flowers are even more showier if you plant them in a non domestic way. Meaning if you just bury them in some obscure wild patch of your yard, they will grow some lovely purple-ish colour on the poofy blossoms. Down side they will be a little more puny. Must be the wild stuff in the soil. I would imagine that eating the bulbs later on would naturally be healthier for you then being domesticated. Maybe I'm wrong. None the less these are pretty cool looking.
