Other Stuff I Saw This Past Weekend.

GOT a lot done today, at work and running errands. Today was a sweet day because everything (almost) fell into place. I remembered appointments, chores, places to be and had all I needed to accomplish these things with me! Sometimes they're at home, which isn't convenient at all.
This past Saturday a sister and brother and I visited with another brother and his wife. We all had lunch and then a tour of his new little house, built especially to protect the pump for their irrigation well during Oregon's long, hard winters. (haha - well, last winter's anyway)
Of course, not just any little house would fit into their backyard. I can see things taking off from here. Maybe one day it will have its own little porch and picket fence. Look at those darling stained glass windows he made for the house. There is a bougainvillea planted on the right.
There are many trees surrounding their yard, and up in one of the fruit trees there was a bird. Can you see it among the leaves? Can you tell me what it is?
This yard is also special because it's home to the Easter Bunny. Please don't divulge to anyone that it lives in Oregon. We will be inundated with more tourists. (Well, considering the economy that might not be a bad idea.) The 10th annual Easter Egg Hunt is coming up this next year in my brother and sister-in-law's backyard. The kids love it and the grownups love the cake.
One last pic of a July dahlia and then I'm off to water the plants. It's 92 degrees Fahrenheit outside right now at 5:46 p.m. Little humidity, thank our heavenly stars - femminismo

FUN photos! Love that pimped pump house and the stained glass is lovely...!

Mmm. I don't think we have that bird in THIS neck of those woods. Is it brown? It looks a bit yellowish being under that lovely verdant canopy!
Take care, Pal!
