The Wildlife Play a Game!

The Herbal Husband has a game he plays with the birds.  The crows affectionately called "The Boys" are one of his favorites.  I do have to remind him that it usually is "The Boys and Girls" when he addresses them first thing in the morning!  The Herbal Husband has bags of peanuts in their shell and he loves to throw them on the driveway and the blue jays and now the crows swoop down to grab them.  Sometimes they try to grab more than one at a time!  That leads to comic relief.  Worked getting the tomatoes and sticks pulled out of the garden.  It's going to rain for a couple of days.  It's looking good to do the artemisia tree, but the herbs that are drying on the tabletop need to be put away in containers.  Hopefully, I can get it started tomorrow.  I clipped some small rose hips for decoration.  Hope you had a great day wherever you may be.  Talk to you later!

They are just so funny, Kary! They make the funniest noises to get your attention! They are just real comedians. Thanks for stopping by Kary and Teddy. xxx Nancy

The bluejays eat peanuts from my neighbor's hand.

Sounds like fun!

I love watching the birds eat too. Last week I was laughing at Blue Jays and squirrels fighting over sunflower seeds. The Jays won!

I think having them eat out of your hand would be neat until I actually had to do it, TG and then I would panic!

The birds are one of our joys, Heather.

The jays beating up on the squirrels, Carol! They are both pretty feisty!

Thanks for stopping by ladies!
