Goldfinches are so cute!
Last night John and I took Teddy for a really long walk. When we got back we put him in the house and then set out in the middle courtyard of our community. There are alot of coneflowers and cattails. The coneflowers are in the courtyard part where there are park benches and the cattails are down in the middle areas on either side-kind of sunken garden like. John and I set out there for about an hour just watching 4-6 goldfinches stripping the coneflowers of their seeds. The males were getting super agressive and the females were daintily picking the seeds out and slowing eating them. The picture above wasn't one I took.
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
