I've been such a bag bloggy friend lately and I do apologize. With summer, comes so many outdoor activities and I find my computer time seems to take a back seat. My squirrel nursery is currently empty, so my need to be indoors is non-existent and now that my patio is completely set up, I am such a lazy face with doing indoor things. lol

For my birds today, a gorgeous Blue Jay...


and a handsome Sparrow...

Pion Design - Refillable Summer Journal / Photo Album

Hello Everyone!

Today I have another version of a journal to share with you. I'm still playing around with different sizes and styles, trying to discover the best and most efficient album that would get the most use. This one features the newest Pion Design collection "Seaside Stories". I have also done a walk-through video, it's just impossible to photograph all of the elements.

Decided to try a new set up for the photographs...don't like it, I'm going back to my dark background.

Last week all the parks will filled with blossoms on the trees. It's one of my favourite times to go out for a walk. I was really hoping to run across some baby ducks or swans this year, but so far I have only seen the Goslings (though they are sure cute enough to keep a smile on my face).

One of our local parks fully in bloom!


"Who says the grass is always greener on the other side? Mine's pretty green, and delicious!"
~Gosling~


I SAW A NEW BIRD!!! How exciting to run across this gorgeous White Crowned Sparrow!
This spring is shaping up to be a good one! 


How much do I adore these little creatures!
Big ears, big eyes, wee little tail. What a combo!


"OK, I'm gonna come down now. You promised not to move, remember!!"
~a trail friend~


BABY RED SQUIRREL! It's difficult to tell in this photo, but this is the smallest squirrel I have ever seen! She's smaller than a lemon, including her head!

I have named her Petunia!


That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.

Life has been a tad crazy for me here this last while. With my squirrel nursery now open for business and I have also taken in my very first baby raccoon! Feedings every 2 hours makes it difficult to find time for anything else, but it's totally worth it!!

"I can totally see you back there! You aren't fooling anyone, human!"
~Gosling~


BABY RACCOON!
Does everyone remember my raccoon friend Big Kate? Well she's the proud Mamma of three little babies! I've named the two larger boys Lesley and Wesley. There was a wee runt too, and I've named her Little Kate! This is one of the boys!


"Oh, it's you again. Are you going to follow me around all day? I'm getting bored of posing for you!
~Cher Cher~


My little friend Dale. I still haven't gotten a clear view to see if Dale is male or female. Either way, Dale is such a special little squirrel and I'm so glad to have met her. I mean him, I mean her... Doh!


"I know what you're gonna say human, but I'm raising like a billion babies, so I'll lay down in the buffet if I want to!
~Crazy Karen~
