Imagine my surprise I realized I was less than 3 feet from this beautiful bird on my bird feeder. He just sat there and looked at me, almost like he was tame. He is a rose breasted grosbeak. The female looks like a very large sparrow. They are almost as large as a blackbird without the long tail. They appear heavy bodied. I can only hope they build a nest near by so I can see them again.
South Texas has been in a drought for at least the last four or five years. My grass has died off, as well as most of my tropical foliage plants. I have had to dig up my hibiscus plants and re-potted them in large pots so I can move them out of the direct sun and keep them watered. Actually I enjoy all the plants on the patio, where I can keep an eye on them.
Have a wonderful day !

The weather is getting warmer so I have decided to stop working so hard and just take a few days off.
I have repainted both the computer room and the spare bedroom a lovely shade called "Mature Spanish Chestnut" with a bright creamy white on the doors and trim.
Remixed the kitchen , living room and master bedroom paint , in small cans, for touch ups...and repainted all three doors in the master bedroom with that lovely creamy white as well as the trim in the master bathroom..
In the midst of all this painting , Dara requested a painting of a peacock feather for a girlfriends birthday present.
Guess you could say if I was not painting.....I was resting from painting.
We are expecting good weather into the weekend so I think I'll just putter around in the yard. I have some tomatoes already planted.
Have a great day !!!
