Making My Backyard Nice

This is all I have had the energy to do. I went and purchased some bird feeders and a hummingbird feeder. I caught a hummingbird in my garage the other day. They get stuck in there and fly up instead of down so that keeps them from getting out. Then they get webs on them and it makes it hard to fly. It is great for me because I have gotten to hold one twice. It even sat on the back of my hand. The lady at the store said they fly in there to check out the garage cord that hangs down. She was right when I came home and looked at it it was red. That is what attracts them to it. I put the hummingbird feeder by the fountain so I can sit there and get pictures of them. The bird feeders are out in the yard so hopefully that will keep the birds out there and away from the deck. I don't want my deck covered in bird crap!
It is nice having the dogs outside with me. Drake loves to lay in the sun. He thinks he is a model. He just stares at me like take my picture. Pal runs from me. I have taken his picture since he was a pup so he hates the camera.
I am hoping by the weekend I will have the energy to sew.
