  25. Great blooms for RT, and the bird is a great touch.

  26. dear sonny..
    do you realize that it has been almost eight months since you have created your blog and what a wonderful blog it is and what amazing ruby tuesdays and quotes of christ you put in and what marvelous pictures.
    i am so proud of you!
    what is the name of this little bird sonny?
    you are just like bernie..he talks to the birds that come to our lawn and he calls them little guys...he talks to them softly and they never fly away.
    he always keeps the bird bath full so they can bath..the robins really do a good job and it is so funny that when they are finished they go on the lilac bushes to dry themselves out!
    this is the season that i dislike the most as far as robins are concerned.
    when the cherries will be ripening soon that is the time that cruel people start to shoot the little things just because they take a bite or two of the fruit.
    i had a favourite uncle and one time when we were visiting him when we lived in trenton still and i was fairly little, i saw in his driveway a big pile of dead robins and i asked him...why??? "they eat my cherries" he said, and i think that that was the day that he was not my favourite uncle anymore!
    well happy ruby tuesday my own little guy...and congratulations on this post! terry
