A Stroll in the Garden

The Hubby grabbed his camera, and went out to the garden for a few photos to share.

Mama and baby quail are out and about (only one baby in this photo, but there are nine in her family).

This is a red breasted nuthatch. Nuthatches are tree climbers, and we have lots of them.

This nuthatch is climbing on the oak tree. He is coming down to drink from the water fountain on the deck.

I have spent some time canning peaches. I get a lot of satisfaction from this!

Meanwhile, back out in the garden, there are still some lovely blooms happening!

Stay healthy.

Stay safe.

Keep smiling.

See the world around you!

  3. Hi Laura!! I’ve never heard of a nuthatch but they are beauties. Red-breasted? I’ll have to look up photos of them on Google. You have such an excellent eye for photography. I’m so glad you enjoying doing it – it would be a shame to waste your talent. And canning peaches?!! YUM. This really makes me wish I lived closer to you. Happy Saturday!{{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
