Here is a shot taken a few minutes ago through my workshop cellar window. If you look carefully you can see a red cardinal sitting in the white dogwood. Notice the ferns right in front of the window. The red flowering tree is a redbud.

Next time I will clean the window and take out the screen. :)

First photos taken with a new compact camera.. Not so spectacular wiews as the others, but still a view from a northern city workshop window. Springtime is a bit early here but less early than many of you closer to the equator..

Need a little more training to get the light right..

I Love seeing all these interesting shots. It's fascinating actually. Sadly, as a non vegetarian, Chet's makes me a little hungry :)

I've been told that the word "vegetarian" derives from an American indian word meaning "very poor hunter"-- but that could be apocryphal...

There are usually two of those beasties wandering my place in the afternoon or evening. One year they ate all my broccoli, so that I never got a bite. I assumed they were willing to trade venison for veggies, so I was not too upset, but the unscrupulous creatures flew the coop the day before season opened.

I't's OK, though...they are nice to watch. But they do eat rose leaves, grape leaves, orchard leaves, and nearly every cultivated plant. Gonna have to fence 'em out, I guess.

Being a vegetarian is probably more efficient. By the time you get up from the bench, put the silencer on the rifle, and step out the door, the deer is gone. The trees are still there. :)

Cloudy day in SW Idaho today. One shot from the bench. The other from the front door. Ignore the dandelions, because in the far distance, you can see Dean's house.

I tried my best looking window where I do my carving but this bird kept getting in the way! What a great idea for a thread!!!

Dean,

I used to have a Timneh African Grey with a cage like yours. I had to give her up because my wife did not like the bird and vice versa.

Tell us about yours.

I was just working on the deck, and tanning one there. Not too warm, but it's brighter than the basement. I almost gave up gardening altogether due to those four legged herbivores. This winter they even ate the yews around the front porch as far as they could reach. Now they are dead needles around the outside about 2 feet in, and green in the middle.

Rifle? Silencer??

Never needed a silencer for my bow...never had a good recipe for Douglas Fir, either, though, so although I like the trees, when it comes to eating, I will take a more tender choice, whether vegetable or animal.

BTW, I don't think the deer eat my rhubarb, but either they or the other animals eat my zucchini before it is big enough to pick...and I pick 'em small....

:-)

( I know; those are Big Leaf maple, where the deer is standing, but most of my place is covered with Doug Fir.)

This is what they say about this bird:

"White Bellied Caiques are the undisputed rodeo clowns of the parrot world. Their coloring is almost as comical as their personalities. They like being the center of attention and are a joy to watch play, wrestle, Hop like rabbits, and steal food from each other. They are very easy to teach tricks and are capable of completing difficult tasks."

I bought it to carve out the Spruce with it's beak. She was NOT "capable of completing difficult tasks" so we are feeding her to the cat.

A view of my laundry drying.

Joe

Here's the inspiring view from my workshop window, with some violins drying in the background.

There is probably some significance to the superficial impression that Joe's laundry looks like violins, and my violins look like laundry, but for the moment it escapes me.

Took these on Saturday, eight days ago. Little fellow awakened from a long winters nap with a powerful hunger for some birdseed. Chased him away after I took a few pics. Life in the wilds of Colorado Springs, Population 600,000. :)

Bearly aware that he’s not a squirrel. Misspelling intentional :)

My view to the west-side window. To the south the view is very close to Martinas (we are around 30 miles apart).

For Google earth fans here are my coordinates from my workbench! 47.41.09.91 N - 11.12.27.11 E

Yours?

Google earth did not update my aera since 2005. You see only a green grassland.
