Hodgepodge

Tonight’s post is a hodgepodge of pictures I took over the last few days.  

A neighbor who I don’t know very well invited me over to see her chicken coop  Le Poulet Maison.  The coop was a rusty old shed in its former life.    The “window” on the side is mirrored and reflects her lovely back yard.

Love her use of branches as a border around the tree.

Back at the house, this red headed fellow was making a lot of noise.

In contrast, this little fellow was quiet as a mouse as he perched upon a freshly painted rocking chair.   I was beginning to think he was stuck in the paint but he flew away after I took one picture.

A couple of pelicans were hanging out on the concrete under the bridge.  The one on the right is showing off her new pedicure.

Meanwhile the heron thought he was clever by hiding in the tree but he didn’t fool me.

Off he went when he got tired of me taking so many pictures.   He clearly does not like the paparazzi stalking him.

My favorite picture of the week is this one of reflections on the river.  

River Reflections

The water was so still I had a difficult time distinguishing reality from reflection.

Thanks for visiting today!

I will be partying at A Southern Day Dreamer and hope you will join me there.
