Dad's New Angel

 It's meal time for the waterfowl~~

Did you notice the excavator?

Our dad is building a bigger and better swan house.  The excavator set the pipes in the pond along with some manpower help.    The pipe is positioned and the bucket on the excavator acts like a fist and  PUSHES the pipe right down into the pond muck.  Mom doesn't have a picture of this happening but it was fun to watch it happen.  That pipe is never coming out!

The swan house will happen before winter.  Dad has way too many projects going on at the same time. 
 This is Angel. She is dads' new Whooper swan~
 She's very docile and very sweet. 

Do you want to hear her whoop?



You sure do love your bread, don't you, Lucy!


Look what mom found blooming on her gardenia plant ♥


So until next time..............

Love ya lots♥

Oh, wowzers, is she ever beautiful! I love the bright yellow on her bill - and those FEETY-FEET!!! She looks like a wonderful addition to your flock. She looks like she's been there forever, getting along with all the other birdies! What a sweet Angel!
Play bows,

oh my - she is just beautiful....you guys are so lucky. And all those ducks - I hope you collect the eggs.....mmmm love duck eggs - did you know they make the BEST cakes. And you got a double gardenia - how cools. Both ours are HUGE plants now and are flowering for like the fourth time. Lots of fertilizer and don't forget the iron.

Hi Mitch and Molly, wow you sure have lots of featherly friends. Your dad's new swan sure looks beautiful. The second to last photo with Lucy kind of makes me think that she got a piece of your mom's gardenia in her mouth.

Love the new look...wish I could eat it! Angel is beautiful and she looks so sweet. I didn't know you had so many birds. Good for them they are getting a house with winter coming.

Sullly said...

I call fowl (foul) too many birds on the playing field. But really do you ever get to chase them.... please say yes.

Aroo to you,

Such a pretty swan. We have never heard of or seen that kind before. That big excavator sure looks like it would be fun to play with.
