Hi everyone! Welcome to another Rednesday!
I love my giant red 'Fireball' Hibiscus!
Picked up a few things at the thrift shop this past week ~
A nice red vintage matchbox holder . . .
I have to tell you about the visitor we've had here the past four days. Might become a permanent resident! It's a banded pigeon. (I can show his pic because he has red feet, which you can hardly see!)
He spends most of his time on top of the shed and the barn. I was able to get close enough to read his band and looked up on the internet to find his owner. Fortunately, he lives about an hour away. The guy came up on Monday and, after three hours, was unable to lure the bird to be caught. He said that if I'm able to catch him (huh?) to put it in a cardboard box with holes and call him. Or, hopefully, it will eventually fly home.
My only concern is that one of my four cats might get it, but I'm not going to babysit the bird or keep the cats indoors! Maybe I'll just call it Pidgie!
