Where did those come from? They're great!

TC said...

Hey Ms. Luisa, thanks for stopping by and it's good to see you! Are you asking for the location of where I took the pictures?

tina said...

Oh wow! The hummingbird is wondering what is up with those pesky butterflies.

Skeeter said...

Those quackers or honkers look so cold but a beautiful picture! The butterflies are so pretty. Well, no comment on the pink flamingos, Okay, I will say they made me giggle lol...

How ironic, you were talking about the Globetrotters on Tina's Meadowlark posting and I mentioned seeing them at APSU as a child. I just went to the on-line home paper for my daily dose of hometown life and front page: Globetrotters playing at APSU!!! Wow, lets talk about hitting the lottery shall we?

Skeeter said...

Tina, thanks for you chat! I did not see the hummer! Had to go back and there it was bigger then Stuttgart! I must have been captivated by the beauty of the butterflies and yummy treats for them...

Lucky you on the fruit with the butterflies and hummer. I tried putting fruit out but only got yellow jackets, flies and ants.
On the cute picture of the ducks, is that a frozen bush in the background or is that you jumping into the pond and creating a big splash?

Nikki said...

What lovely pictures!

(there. are you happy now? I commented since I "have nothing better to do" ;) )

Oooh the last photo with the flamingos is my favorite, although they're all really good. Those butterflies look huge!

I missed the hummer too, but that's probably because I don't have my contacts in yet. I definitely did not miss the pink flamingos. The one with the ducks, now? I'm curious about what does look like a splash. Does it represent a major breakthrough, getting "a successful blogger" to comment--only to be quacked at by an irritable, "green"-weary, old bird? Maybe my comments should be wordless at certain times, just emoticons.

Ms. Tina: As skittish as hummers are, you'd still think it'd not mind those harmless flutterbuys.

Skeeter: I saw the Globetrotters once as a child also! And yes! "lets talk about hitting the lottery..."

Flydragon: I wish this were my feeding tray and outdoor kitchen! I took the photo at a butterfly exhibit at the Cleveland Botanical Garden's last July. The ducks were photographed on a frozen pond at a local park here. The only thing not frozen was what you see, the pond's water fountain spray.

Ms. Nikki: Thank you fellow Plurker! And I am quite happy you stopped by and commented.

Ms. Fern: I love those "pink chickens" too. I need a new set for my yard. And those butterflies do look like giants next to that hummer.

TC said...

W2W: I tried contacts several years ago and couldn't stand them! It felt like something was in my eye (which it was) and I couldn't get it out (which I did). Needless to say, that turned me against ever trying them again.

Your self-deprecation is honorable, however I need no hebetude anywhere on my blog so please don't start using emoticons.

Frances said...

Hi TC, I am wearing my glasses, such as they are, and still didn't see the hummer until reading the comments. Thank goodness for comments, write? That W2W is a card, isn't she?

Sorry, I am a bit snarky today.

TC said...

Ms. Frances: You're allowed to be snarky every now and again. I too get crotchety at times. ;~)

Monica the Garden Faerie said...

Nice finish with the pink flamingos. Classic!

Roses and Lilacs said...

Those are absolutely the greatest photos!
Marnie

TC said...

Ms. Monica: I like them too. They're so retro and also completely resistant to that Avian influenza virus. ;~)

Ms. Marnie: Thank you so kindly. I'm glad you enjoyed them.

Jennifer Suarez said...

AMAZING photos. That first one is my favorite... but they are all really great!

TC said...

Jen: Thanks! And another BIG THANKS for stopping by! I hope to see you more often. ;~)
