Some April 2012 Backyard Happenings

Posted by terrepruitt on April 21, 2012

To me life is about learning.  I have learned a few things since I started my Nia Class on Monday in Campbell in the evenings and my Nia Class on Saturday.  It is much better for me to have Monday’s dinner cooked on Sunday.  So I have been planning my weekend meals so that I have leftovers on Monday.  You may have noticed that I didn’t post anything last Saturday . . . . lesson learned:  I need to make sure my Saturday post is done on Friday.  I have too many other things to do when I get home from my 10:00 am Nia Class.  It ends at 11:00 so I don’t get home until 11:30 (at the earliest) or noon!  So I really need to have my post done because the next thing I know it is 1:48 am on Sunday morning and I am just noticing I forgot to post on my blog.  😦  Well, it was only the second time I forgot.  The first time also was a Saturday.  This past week the weather has been gorgeous here in San Jose.  I haven’t spent much time lately getting any pictures of our yard happenings.  This past week while the weather was cool and nice I took a few.  I thought I would share some with you.  It has been awhile since I have shared some fun pictures on my blog.Dance Exercies, Nia, Nia Campbell, Campbell Nia, Nia classes in Campbell, evening Nia, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia

This guy has an injured foot.  I noticed his injury about the same time I hurt my foot.  I try to keep an eye on him and make sure he gets some nuts.  And he makes sure I know he wants nuts.  He will find a spot where he can look in a window at me and stare.  He will stare at me until I go outside and give him some peanuts.

He is doing that now.  Staring.  Of course, I went outside and gave him some nuts.  Did you notice how clear the sky is?

Dance Exercies, Nia, Nia Campbell, Campbell Nia, Nia classes in Campbell, evening Nia, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, NiaI wanted to get some shots of our blooming rose bush.  A while back I was unhappy with the wilderness that was out the window so I went outside and did some pruning.  It was completely “Edward Scissorhands” style as I just took the saw and went right and left and left and right and up and down and down and up and all around.  I just wanted all the wildness gone.  So I was very concerned that I wrecked the bush.  So when I saw one rose I was very happy.  And now that the whole bush is blooming I am really happy and wanting to share.  I’ve posted about how weird our roses are.  But I still like them, even though they start out really sunset orange and then fade to a washed out peach.  They SMELL really good.

Well, thank you for stopping by and visiting our yard.  We enjoy the entertainment the wildlife offers and the beauty that the flowers share with us.  I hope you did too.

Do you have a flower garden?  Do you have a vegetable garden?  Fruit trees?  Does any wildlife visit your yard?

    I really enjoyed your yard. Great pics. My favorite animal friend from the past was my squirrel. They are soooo smart!

    • Is this THE Lynette Garcia? Wow!

      Squirrels are very cunning, but I have reached the conclusion that they don’t see well because a nut can be RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM and they don’t SEE it. It is very odd.

      Thanks for reading/looking and commenting!

    • In the first one the squirrel is staring at me telling me he wants peanuts. And our roses this year are so awesome. I am loving them. The rose bush is right outside a window I am looking through often so I am really enjoying it!
