|When I opened the door yesterday to check on the Nuthatches and Titmice at the feeder I noticed something a little different climbing up one of the trees.
A little camouflaged Brown Creeper!
|They are not the easiest birds to spot but sure are special to find since they are not as common as many other birds in my woods.
|They also don't hold very still so these photos are the best I could get. They are however, much better than the ones I got last year at this time of this little Brown feller.
|When I turned around I noticed something not so camouflaged.
|One of my two beautiful Camellias is beginning to bloom.
|When I turned around again, I saw other non-camo garden beauties.
|This little Harvestman was doing his best not to be seen...
|...but not these Salvia. (I'm pretty sure they are Salvia but if I'm wrong please feel free to let me know).
|The Redbud seed pods stand out a little bit.
|And this Dogwood is hanging on til the bitter end!

|If you will notice the view this little feller chose is a pretty good one so I'm thinking it's a pretty smart Bunting...good views....great weather!!
Who could ask for more!!
(I'm just hoping he won't be bringing any snow with him!!! PLEASE!!!)

|The front garden is covered in leaves and looking drab. It's been a while since the vibrant colors of Spring.
|I built this rustic bench out of materials left here from the previous owners.
I just love it...as a matter of fact there is enough material to make 5 or 6 more!
|And this is one of my finds at the Antique Shop I found the other day.
I thought it would make a fine planter and I paid a whopping $4.00 for it!
As soon as my mom saw it, she said..."oh that's a coal hod! We had them when we were kids."

My friend Katie and took a little trip down the road and checked out two antique shops not far from home. I just love old things and thought I'd share a couple pictures. The photos below are for my friend Kerry.
Kerry takes the best old bike photos I've ever seen!
I chose this photo after taking 3 or 4 because the as the train was passing by, without noticing, the car here nearly matches the bike! NICE!!!
I LOVE old chairs!!
But alas my wallet could not support bringing home any this day.
I did find a couple affordable items and I guess that'll make for another post!
