Blossoms

There are blossoms on my crabapple tree now. A robin has made a nest there. I attempted to take a picture and she scolded me severely. I apologized to her, telling her that I would never hurt her or her family. She didn't believe me. She is suspicious of everyone who comes near. Sherman and I were on the porch. I was working on my Bible study homework and Sherm was laying at my feet. Suddenly we heard a ruckus! Sherm jumped up with all the hairs on his back bristling. He began barking...but neither of us were exactly sure what it was he was barking at. Then I saw it. Two squirrels running for cover. Mrs Robin was dive-bombing them and flapping her wings like mad!

Oh, that is beautiful! Enlarged it and was awsome. Mrs. Robin must very protective, such a good mama.
I just knew you would have a chair out there on the porch, but I didn't picture Sherman laying at your feet. That just makes my vision of your house Perfect.

Isn't it funny how intimidating an small animal can be? Bethany left Louis here for the day ( she had him to the vet in Ontario before she went to work) and he's scary. He spits and growls and acts threatening. I'm afraid he might attack me. He's closed in my bedroom and he won't let me in. Bad cat!
