Nature's Gifts...

Here are the darling baby Warblers; I see 5 beaks, but it looks like perhaps there are 6 babies. Aren't they sweet?!    Don did good; He took only one photo.  We don't want to shock them with the flash.
Can't wait for the down to develop and their eyes to open; It will be fun to hear them chirping, too~

There was also a visitor in the front yard this morning; Our beagle Buster is on watch; yes, one pampered pooch.  I am pretty sure all beagles, (at least the pics I see on Flickr),  like their pillows.
Until the rabbit shows up...





Okay, let see if I can show a better, shot

   This is better; isn't he/she cute...












We are trying to grow grapes this year; Our winery will be open next year. We plan on giving Williamsburg Winery some competition.(just kidding)








          





  Me, I am working on my Jackson & Perkins roses 


Somehow the tag is missing on this one, but I am pretty sure it is Love n' Peace.










                                                                                                  
This one is called Pinata, some of the blooms are orange n' yellow or orange n' pink.  This photo doesn't do it justice!

Does your husband ever intend to wear those boots again? I'm guessing the answer is no.

Our dog used to nuts for squirrels.

Fresh grapes off the vine...how divine! And the Pinata rose is stunning. Your entire garden looks lovely and I bet you've already put a lot of sweat and energy into it.

You've taken some lovely shots, I especially like the one of your beagle looking soulful. : j
I had no idea you are having a winery... I am so excited... I love wineries....long story.. maybe a good post... I love the colors of those jackson perkins roses... I must research for next year... love the names

Lisa-I don't have a winery, it is tease. My husband only bought a couple of plants. I would love to have one! Thanks, aren't the roses,
unique. I received the Love n' Peace for my b-day and the Pinata one for Mother's Day.

Alesa-Thanks; I do think most beagles have that soulful look! It is their eyes; Our beagle is quite a rig! Thanks for visiting me...

Becky-Yes, we are anxious to taste them! I don't mind the energy, it feels great to grow beautiful flowers and food. It can be back breaking; I have to pace myself.

Alex-I don't know, what the verdict is yet...
He said, he would dump the nest out, when they are done. Time will tell, my vote is they will decorate the garage again, til the
warblers come back. He did find another nest in a Tide box. I can't use Tide; It was out near the cleaning supplies. Birds can't smell?! Perhaps not, they used hubby's boots for their home ;-D

Those little birds look so strange right now--life is wierd, isn't it... the newborns so ODD, then they get so CUTE. We had a bunny nest last June and the first time I realized what it was was when I lifted the fluff and I was SURE it was a nest of toads (nevermind that toads are not born as toad... that is what they looked like) but they got SOOOO CUTE! (saw 3 bunnies on my walk this morning too.

And your roses are amazing! Love both varieties! And YAY wine!

No winery? And I was visualizing acres of grape vines as I read :)
Lisa said…
This post contains a little bit of everything I love. Dogs, bunnies, flowers... (GORGEOUS, btw) and your very own grapevine?! COOL!

Oh yes, the baby birds are absolutely ADORABLE. We had a terrible wind storm a few weeks ago and I found a baby bird that had fallen out of the nest. Still young enough to have his pen feathers. He didn't make it. I cried my eyes out. :( I'm glad your babies are in a safe place!

Love all the pics Ellie. Love the rose on your blog header. BTW I totally jealous of Lisa's prize package :0)

a day late here. i love the photos!!! i planted two grape vines this year but the leaves are just coming off what i thought to be a dead vine. love the nest those birds have. looks really soft! a wabbit uh? nice! you have your own B & B. Birds and bunnies versus Bed & Breakfast:)
Ellie said…
Bud-I love that B&B; Yes, screwy wabbits! I believe they are living underneath the shed.
Our beagle always runs over there. You are funny~

Wanda-Thank you;awe, you are sweet!

Lisa-LOL, yes, my own grape vine..it is 2, actually! It was an experiment! I tease hubby all the time, about your vineyard~ I am sorry about the bird you found, I would of felt the same way! so sad...

Karen G-I know, a girl can dream, right!

Hart-Wow, 3 bunnies, that is quite a walk; I usually see one,maybe two, never three on one walk! Yes, wine and roses...sounds like a party, to me~ I found a toad hiding once in the dirt and thought it was a snake...eeewww!
My son a few years ago, chased me with a toad down the road..that was when I could run! Now, the only way I would run is if Cujo was after me~
