A Little Chit Chat about a Parrot...and a Little Gardening!

Today's blog post is gonna be all over the place!......I know...you're saying: "What else is new?!" LOL But that's why I'm playing some seasons of love for you...to put you in a good mood while you wade through all of the boring plant photos! ^_^ So, here we go!! Hubby's Garden...
So enthralling, isn't it?!! ^_^ No! I'm not done!!!
Okay......so those aren't plants!!! LOL I just thought you might need something to eat right about now. ^_^ I saw these delicious looking babies on a new blog I just started following. It's called Hither and Thither. Oh!! So many beautiful photos!! And it looks like a new baby is on the way too! I'm so happy to be a new follower just at the right time!
Okay, back to the plant photos! In the meantime you can listen to a little conversation hubby and I had this past weekend. We were just laying around enjoying the soft rain coming down in the backyard, talking about this and that, when OUT OF THE BLUE hubby asked me: "Would you ever consider getting a Parrot?" O_0 Before I said another word, I grabbed the camera that I've had 'on the ready' right next to me, to catch a photo of the hummingbird, and hit "Record"....

Almost done!! ^_^ Just a few more. These are ones that are just getting ready to pop, hubby says!!
Helloooooooooooooo!!! Are you still here?!.....You know anywhere I might be able to buy a monkey?!! LOL

When Jeff Was A Boy

He had an orange bicycle
that he rode all over town;
A banana-seated 'Stingray',
and its handle grips were brown.

At 12, to make some cash,
he had a great big paper route.
He'd either walk or ride his bike.
Come rain or shine, he would go out.

He had a fast-red wagon
he pretended was a car.
He hauled everything in sight,
from sister's dolls to dirt-filled jars.

He played little league football,
basketball, kick soccer too.
Despite his having asthma
(which his coaches never knew).

He had lots of toys to play with-
matchbox cars and small 'Hot Wheels',
'Pick-up Sticks' and building blocks,
and model planes, which gave him thrills.

All his responsibility
was to take 'Skippy' out to run.
That's all his dog and him would do.
This made his childhood lots of fun!

Now he's older, likes to stroll,
and grow his garden in the yard;
Doesn't hanker for his boyhood.
Doesn't wanna play that hard!


  1. I think the sprouting of little seedlings is VERY exciting! and very jealous that you can do that!
    Parrot? not sure about that one!

  2. planetreasures, If you think sprouting seedlings are exciting, you must be a gardener. LOL I'm...sadly...not! The garden is hubbies area...And I question the Parrot thing too! ^_^

  3. So glad the seedlings are doing ok :) great post!

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  4. Bee happy, Yes, they're coming along!...Thank you! And you have a good day too! :-]

  5. Your garden pics are not boring at all, they are PORN for those of us trapped in the stupid desert, haha! So gorgeous! And lol on the parrot. Oh boy :)

  6. OttosMom, Well, I'm glad they weren't boring for you!! And for those of us who don't live in the desert, we find the open spaces and red dirt fascinating...So there! LOL...And I said: "Oh boy" too about the parrot!! ^_^

  7. Hee hee... well are you going to get a parrot then? I guess not with all the noises it's going to pick up!
    The plants are looking good...maybe your hubbie can come and rescue my money plant: it's meant to be a succulent - how did I kill it???!!!

  8. Trying again....I love this post, the photos and most of all that video...giggle, now lets talk about getting a parrot, LOL :-)

  9. Creating Trouble, Ha! Ha! Ha! No!! I'm not gonna get a parrot!! I'm gonna get him a monkey!!! Ha! Ha! Ha!...I may have to come out of Baby Wuglyee's crochet retirement and MAKE him one!! Ha! Ha!...And, by the way, I'm sure he'd LOVE to come and grow your plants too! ^_^

  10. Katherine's Corner, Hi!! Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it. ^_^ I know people probably think it was staged, but I'm afraid not. That's my normal conversations with hubby, and from the moment he asked the question I said to myself: "Here we go again!" LOL

  11. Elle The Heiress, ^_^ Aren't those donuts delicious-looking?!! Their blog is that delicious-looking all over!!!

  12. I love you guys!! Your sense of humor is hilarious!! Sounds like conversations my hubby and I have at times! Loved the video! Maybe you should think about getting that parrot!! LOL


    A cat! Ha ha ha!!!

  13. CinLynn, Ha! Ha! Ha! Thank you!! We're not the only ones having silly nonsensical conversations!! ^_^ And NO!!! We will not be getting a parrot!! LOL Not a LIVE one anyway!! ^_^ ...NOR a cat!!!! *smh* LOL

  14. Did i miss the humming bird? ;-)) It is so exciting to watch all yours seedlings finely come up and start to live bless him, dee x

  15. delia, No you didn't miss it. He hasn't come back again. I think the rain has blown him off course...or else he just doesn't like our backyard...or he's just 'snooty'!! LOL
