Visit with Everett

Our newest little grandson, seven weeks old now all dressed for Christmas!

He loves to stretch his legs! And does have some of the Boyd curls.

We catch him smiling and trying to coo and talk!

Rabbits Foot Fern

I brought back this unusual fern from my sister's in N. Carolina at Thanksgiving. She had said how hardy it seemed so hopefully it will do well for me too.

Bird in my front yard

I kept hearing a chirp chirp out front and when I looked out there was a wren! It wasnt the usual tiny one I see in the summer. He hopped up on a branch right up close in the front and then flew down lower below the front bay window and then he appeared right on the ledge of the window. Didn't stay long but I was able to realize he was a wren.

I looked in my bird book and it says the Carolina wren can be in this area too. I've seen them many times in N. Carolina. He did have that little white strip across by his eye! What a surprise to see him!

Thanksgiving at Betsy's

Had a nice time with Betsy and her family and my Mom at Thanksgiving. The weather was fabulous and even the drive went well.
