Hello everyone, I hope you are having a good weekend! I took a little stroll in the garden, even though I was tempted to stay inside in the air-conditioning! Click on this first photo to see the bird up close. I am not sure if it is a blue jay or a wax wing. It definitely had a bit of blue on it, but seemed a lot bigger than the blue jays I have seen around here. Below is another shot of the bird or it's mate. There were two of them, taking a bath in what little water is in the bird bath. A pair of mockingbirds came and tried to run them off, but they stood their ground and ran off the mockingbirds! It was fun to watch.
This is a glimpse of Margaret's garden. You can see the Mexican petunias in the foreground and in the far end of the little space. Her blue table cloth looks pretty.
My pineapple has some protection from the animals, made from wire. It is about ready to pick. It is heavy and has bent the stalk down.
Best wishes for blue skies and happy days!
