the video below was shot while visiting home for the holidays. the neighborhood is full of 1, 2, & 3 family homes - all different colors & sizes . . . during christmas & new years we enjoyed snow a couple of times & wanted to capture the surrounding 100' or so while i was visiting. i am fortunate in that the house i grew up in is still in the family & enjoyed staying there thru the holidays! future posts will show other areas/events . . . but i started with this & hope you'all enjoy it. i thought it would be apppropriate in that you'all are expecting a BIG storm this weekend . . . as i always say to you'all . . . enjoy it for me!

i told ya i'd figure it out! anyway . . . the dogs were barking as usual, however, they continued for longer than usual - which is the amount of time it takes for the mail person to pass or a neighbor to walk past the house . . . they kept on & on so i went to see what was up & the video above speaks for itself. the american white ibis visits yards/parks in tropical climates & eat the bugs in your grass. the ibis were out in the front yard for about 1/2 hour. they always hang in flocks which is cool . . . one time they landed along my fence in the back yard which is about dozen or so fence lenghts - so about 70+ feet . . . anyway, they landed on it & they looked fake as they were all lined up, lol! ibis also like to land on the top of the pine trees out back which makes they stand out as they're so white . . . they remind me of a christmas tree topper when they do that! when they land in a tree they look like ornaments! i really enjoy all the critters round here & i'm glad i had another new one that i was able to capture on video for you'all. enjoy!

i recently reconnected w/an old friend & helped her w/a tag sale a couple of days - she arrived for a visit with a gift of beautiful tulips! the tulips matched my april cornell table cloth that just happened to be on the kitchen table at the time - i couldn't help but take a photo - the tulips opened beautifully overnight . . . it sad they last just a few days . . . :O(
