Carolina Wren, Robins, Grandsons, and Deer

I have not seen the Carolina Wren at my feeder for nine days now and I was watching all weekend, makes me sad for the little visitor from the south. Friday afternoon while going to get my grandsons I saw my first robin of the season, others have been reporting sightings since mid January, this robin almost flew into our windshield, I am not sure but I think he may have been attempting suicide but changed his mind at the last moment.

We had a great time with the grandsons, we did not get much outside time but it was great to see them! We did see some deer, however it was from the car, not walking like we usually like to do.

Jon Pickles and Peach Begonias

This is Jon Pickles, my grandson named him, the vet's office tells us he is the only patient they have with that name.

Scarlet Begonia

Well, these begonias are not scarlet but it does happen to be the name of one of my favorite Jimmy Buffett songs. I took these photos this weekend.
