More Gorgeous Birds

April 4, 2012

It's sunny this morning, and currently about 50 degrees F.  The weatherman says that today's temp will hit about 64 degrees.  That will be nice because Tootsie and I have a few errands to do today.

First errand this morning will be to pick up my new PC at Staples.  Boy oh boy, will I ever be glad to get Vista out of my life.  It has been a craw in my neck since day one.  I have to say that when Microsoft puts out a bad product, it is a REALLY BAD product.  That's what Vista has been.  I know that a lot of folks might like their Vista, but it has never given me a good day.  I finally stopped using my PC unless I absolutely had to.

I also want to get outside and start cleaning out my gardens.  There are lots of plants coming up and I need to make a list of what I have to buy for this year's planting.  I don't think my Hibiscus plant made it through the winter, but I'm hoping that my Rose of Sharon made it through.  I would like to plant more of the Rose of Sharon.

Yesterday, I shared a gorgeous bird photo that my friend Mary Ann sent me, and today I have two more of her bird photos to share.  I've seen a Baltimore Oriole on a couple of occasions, but I've never been able to photograph one. 

This next bird is a Pyrrhuloxia, otherwise known as a Desert Cardinal, and is found in the American Southwest and Northern Mexico.  I believe this one is a male.

Mary Ann, this is just fabulous!  You're raising the bar for me with this photograph.  One can almost count the hairs on this beautiful bird.  Great job my friend!

For those of you who are new to my blog, you can click on any photo posted and a new window will come up with larger images. 

Today, I'm learning my way around this new laptop.  It's really quite nice, except for the pesky fingerprint thingy that keeps popping up and disrupting whatever I am working on.  I'll have to find the user manual and learn how to use the fingerprint for my passwords.  Maybe then it will stop pestering me.

Now I need to get busy here and start my day.  Janet will be coming by later, so I also have to decide what to make for supper.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Vista is doing okay for now, but I never was happy to get it. XP was much easier!
Hope you get hte trick to use the fingerprint thing.
And your friend makes beautiful bird pics!
Have a great day.

Such beautiful birds. I finally got my waterfall running so hopefully will be able to attract some closer for shooting....with a camera that is.

Hi Edna! Catching up – it’s been a busy couple of days! Sorry about calling you and my cousin out before the game. I’m kinda outnumbered on my own blog! LOL Carla walked in front of the TV in the ninth and the Red Sox tied it up. A black cat walking in front of the TV jinxed the Tigers! Yeesh!
Tootsie’s clothes look just like a little girl’s closet. Too sweet!

That daffodil is beautiful! I did have a few really nice daffs this year too. They are beautiful flowers!

I’m happy for you that you’re free from Vista! I’m one of those people that loves Vista, but I also think Vista is more of a Windows/Mac hybrid in style, which made it very comfortable for me after using only a Mac for so many years.

Mary Ann sent some very nice birds!

I’m ready for it to warm back up now. It’s about normal here and David always leaves the bathroom window open…when it’s 50 degrees out. That’s too cold to be wet and naked! I have to close the windows and let the room warm up to shower!

Okay off to read the other blogs I follow! :D

Win or lose, Happy Opening Day!!

Hugs, Nani
