  2. Sharon!
    When I ws just a little girl I would spend many hours pouring over my Grandmother's copy of Petersen's Guide to Birds. This was the bird that I always dreamed would visit our bird feeders in Massachusetts. She was Swedish and retained her swedish accent till she died at 103!! She called her chickadee's shickadee's and we still do!! i do so love the birds!
    thank you so much for sharing this delightful sequenc of pictures with us. This is still my "DREAM Bird"!!!
    Hugs!

  3. I so love Painted Buntings!! Their color is just amazing. Sad to say we do not get them here in North Georgia.

    But we do get the bunnies - there must be a warren somewhere around me. Every day I see quite a few of them. They are so sweet to watch.

    Thanks for sharing these!

  4. critters are something
    i had a terrific shot
    of course with out my camera handy

    the birds were caught in the wind
    and looked as if frozen in the moment
    i kept waiting for it to happen again
    but it didn't...

    your pond looks nice!

  6. Doesn't it feel restful to sit and watch the birds and animals. What a lovely place you have, a sanctuary.

  7. Oh! I love the nature pics! That bird is gorgeous-like a rainbow of color and the bunny-how nice to be surrounded by wildlife. Thank you for visiting me!

  10. Oh, Sharon, I'm so envious! I love painted buntings and never see them here in my neighborhood. We have lots of indigo buntings out at our farm, though. And, we do have rabbits in our yard. Thanks so much for sharing your critter pictures!

  11. Hello Sharon:

    I am sure that painted Bunting wants to be in your art or in a castle with a lovely woman. He lingered so you could get a good look. After all the word painted means a lot to him.

    I have never seen a rabbit lay like that just like the cat lays sometimes.

    Your apron is so charming, hope you wear it when people come to visit. I keep looking at the noses you paint they have changed,
    so pretty and so so good.

    I admire people who don't waste a minute, you seem this way to me.

    Catching up, cool up north Emelie

  14. Loved seeing your painted bunting and the precious bunny. Saw my first painted bunting outside my mom's kitchen window in Central Texas this spring. They are such a lovely bird. dix---

  17. What an amazing bird. If I didn't know better I'd say you painted it yourself, LOL!

    Off to see what you've been up to.
