MONDAY BLOOMS

Happy Monday again!!!! What's this? Could I really be in a good mood for Monday? While I'm not ready to break bread with Monday, it was a most beautiful start to the morning I must say........this beautiful magnolia smell so fragrant and how pretty are the blooms?
 
This morning, there were more birds singing than I have ever heard.....sounded like a bird arboretum, or a jungle!!!! In addition to my collection of visitors , I now have two yellow rumped warblers, which are so fast, I can't get pictures.....and two mallards have taken residents, which have since been named after the Ropers, Stanley and Helen. I will try to get pictures as I'm sure their scouting a nesting site outside my door. The only draw back to the season is the pollen has covered the car so any times over, the poor houseboys have to keep washing the car over and over. But then.....is that really a drawback? 


Have a great Monday......were to hit 88 today, may need to break out my fan collection already!!!!!!

    Ask the houseboys to wrap a car cover over your car when it's parked, (if you don't have a garage).
