I am feeling so lazy today I decided to just plop a few photos on the page for your entertainment. Yeah, yeh.
Anytime I get inspired to blog pictorially it generally ends up with my head bloody and bowed. Today is no exception.....but I do believe I have managed to upload a photo taken of the Stearns family last month. It shows us in the wonderful recliner that I practically live in when I am not sitting in front of the computer.
And speaking of the computer......,mine is having the incredible effrontery to tell me that I have misspelled my name....humph......how the hell does this machine know that my father changed the spelling from
Stern to Stearns???? I will never understand these infernal appliances.......
Another photo I want to show you is of the amazing red trumpet vine which grows outside of my kitchen window....can you blame me for enjoying washing dishes with this magnificent thing to observe while I watch the hummingbird floorshow?
along the fence and has migrated as far as the garden shed in the back yard. Oddly enough, this is supposed to be a hummingbird favorite, but since I installed the 6 feeders outside the kitchen the birds seem to prefer my homemade nectar.......I make it really sweet.......no flower can really compete.
The final photo is one I tried to take close up and I fear I did not use the zoom properly......it shouldn't be that blurry.....Oh well.....I had better go back and read the instruction booklet yet another time.
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy my feeble efforts. I WILL try to do better.
