Yard Visitors

Happy Sunday everyone! Mother Nature seems to be very confused. We’ve had springlike weather for weeks! Friday was over 80F. It’s February! We should be freezing and buried in snow. I have to say, I’m enjoying the nice weather. We even had open windows here for a couple of days.

As some of you may already know, Mom’s been thinking for a while now about selling our big house and downsizing to something more sensible. She bought this house with her mom. She would have sold it a long time ago when her mom died, but the prices fell so low she couldn’t. Well, the prices are finally right to sell and move, so that’s what we’re going to do. Unfortunately, the Denver area is too expensive for us to stay in once Mom retires, so she’s looking at houses in Colorado Springs. That way she’ll still be close enough to Denver to see her friends sometimes. It’s hard to leave friends you’ve had for 25 years or more. She was looking at Phoenix because she thought she couldn’t even afford the Springs, but it looks like the Springs it will be!

One of the things I’ll miss the most when we move is seeing the amazing birds that come visit our yard. We have this tremendous pine tree that seems to attrack birds of prey. We also get lots of mourning doves and ring-neck doves that come visiting. The two close-up pictures have captions you can see if you scroll over the pictures.

We get other kinds of birds too, and a lot of bunnies but these are the most amazing visitors. I hope our new house gets cool yard visitors.

Have a great week everyone!

  1. My human has always loved Manitou Springs, which is not far from Colorado Springs. She even looked at house prices there once, a long time ago. I’m sure prices have gone up quite a bit since then!

    1. Manitou and Old Colorado City are just out of reach price-wise for us, but that’s our preferred area. Mom took me to a cool pet store in Old Colorado City one time. Since we’re moving to the Springs, maybe I’ll finally get to go to the Garden of the Gods. Last time we tried it was raining so we spent most of the weekend in the hotel.

  2. Oh MeOW dat’s really cool. Wish we could come live with ya’ll and see all those cool animals. Maybe your mommy would like a roommate. MOL Big hugs fur all.

    Luv ya’
