The View

 A good day off, helped by the really warm and sunny weather we've had this week.  It also marked the return of my favorite bird of spring, the Eastern Phoebe.  This little cheeky bird is one of my favorites.  It has nested around or on our house each year that we've lived here. It's raspy “phoebe” call is a frequent sound all spring and most of the summer.
After a little spring yard work, it was nice to sit and just enjoy the view from the front porch.
I'm not sure which view I like the best.
I don't think Sherlock/Reggie has an opinion
And neither does Ms. Yellow, who after seeing my "regular vet" on Monday is feeling much better!
I hope you're enjoying and getting a good view of spring coming too!


  1. I think any view from Golden Pines,, would be just what the doctor ordered.. for you,, and all the furrys and Ms Yellow too. I love seeing all the relaxation that is happening on your porch,, And especially happy that your favorite little Eastern Phoebe is back. I think she remembers all the many nests she has made on your porch.
    Did you see the moon,,, its brand new,, I saw a tiny sliver of white. It was beautiful

  2. SQUAAAAWK! I thought I was your favorite bird.

  3. Yayyy! I'm happy Miss Yellow is feeling better now. More time to relax on the porch with her doggie buddies.

  4. Looks like everyone on your porch is doing well today. Your view is splendid.

  5. I think the view of Todd overseeing everyone is best :-)

  6. What could beat that fabulous views and all your lovely furry friends around you.

  7. Oh I luffs, luffs, luffs the photo of the furfriends on the porch! What great photos, such happy furfriends making me all smiley, pawfect way to start the weekend
