Now that is is the last weekend in May we are finally having May weather! It's been a long slow spring.
This barred owl has been visiting us and hooting in the woods for the last few weeks. I finally managed to get a shot of him when he was hanging out over the deck while Proge was barbecuing chicken. If he was hoping for a handout he was disappointed.
Yes indeed this is Aloysius in the process of opening the screen door. I took this four years ago, but he still tries to get out. This is why all our screen doors are locked!
One thing Aloysius likes to do is go to the farthest corner of the house and cry because he is lonely. At some point in the last year we discovered that singing will bring him to us!
Yesterday he managed to leak out. We started our usual frantic search when I decided to try singing. So here I am at the edge of the woods singing Aloysius to Frere Jaques! He came running to me with his, "Where were you? You got lost!" meows! The Alleluia Chorus works well too.
There are hummingbirds at my window. I had best go put out the petunias!
As always, thanks for stopping by...................*s*
