Falling eggs

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

This is a tiny little dove egg, it fell from the pergola in the back yard where momma dove is nesting. It happens every year, falling dove eggs. It looks like something ate the yolk out of this one 🙁 One would think that after loosing so many babies doves would learn to build a better nest. On a happier note, the Dahlia is starting to bloom 🙂

This would be a pretty room for plants. We went to look at properties last weekend, in Calif you don’t get much bang for your buck even though prices have dropped significantly, some by 50%

I love adobe color tile and a Spanish style home, almost as much as a Meditteranean style home.

The entrance to this house was covered with honeysuckle, it is so fragrant, but I imagine the bees would terrify and I would have to leave the house from a side door.

Off topic, the Hub took a ride on a friend’s 1937 air plane. Its retro cool.

Real life Caterpillar

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

So, I’ve been painting anthropomorphic type caterpillar girls and this morning when I went out back to wash off the patio, this dude fell from the grapevine covering our pergola.  He is quite big I wonder if any one knows what kind of moth he will become. I wanted to pick him up to take a pic of the face but man I got the heebie jeebies.
