Not your usual apartment complex....

The other day while out for our drive, I took some quick snapshots of birdhouses at some of the Amish farms. I think I need to get serious about taking photos of these...try to get better backgrounds, etc. Seems to me that a lot of the Amish have them.
And I am trying to grow some gourds this year, but not sure if I got them out early enough to do any good. But I would like to have something like the ones above.
And I am tempted to have Roger build me something like the above one. I just wonder if we would have birds come to it.
I do have wrens, but they are shier than the ones we had at home. They are the House Wren and not the Carolina Wren...I will take either one. But deep down I wish it was the Carolina Wren...which is what we had at home. Either one though has such a happy can scroll on down on those pages and listen to them.

I have yet to get a good picture of them, but am going to have to do it soon...I saw them taking in a something to feed their babies. So it probably won't be long till they leave the nest. I just hope the wrens stay around. I had Carolina Wrens one year, but they never stayed...I hear one occasionally, but they are always just passing through.
I need to get my camera out and have it ready for Lorelei...I am having her of the weekends right now. I meant to get it out today and didn't get it done. She is changing, but I am wondering if anyone else will see it besides us that have her. It is partly looks, but a lot her actions.

She still smiles at Shelby, really smiles at Sarah's old dog Keesha, but not so much at Otto the American Staffordshire Terrier, Otto. She has started noticing and feeling of Roger's beard, and she was pulling my hair so bad it hurts.

Otto wants to lick Lorelei so bad, and gets her feet every chance he gets. He also manages to throw a guilt trip on me every time I am over there...he will just sit and stare at me and I know he is wondering why I don't spend more time with him. And I would but he wants to play so bad, and he wants to get in my lap...his fun thing is for me to throw stick/toy/whatever is handy for a while, and then he wants to climb in my lap...which his mom and dad want discouraged.

Oh, and Lorelei helped me feed Mama Squirrel again today. Now this is odd...if Roger or I move our hands suddenly when she is eating...even if she just took the nut from our hand she will jump. I was holding Lorelei with my left arm and had given her a nut or two and then laid the rest on top of a fence post and she was up there eating. Lorelei and I were standing right there practically touching the post...and Lorelei was just swinging one arm around and Mama didn't pay her any attention at all. I honestly wonder if she realizes that she is a baby?
