Saturday's Critters #65

Saturday's Critters #65

Happy weekend, everyone!  It's Saturday and it's time to share your critters.. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who has linked up in the past and for those who are linking in on this week's critter party. And of course I always appreciate my blogging friends stopping by just for a visit.

I am sharing a couple of my yard birds for my critter post, I hope you enjoy.

I maybe away from the computer so I will be catching up with my comments and visits as soon as possible. Have a great weekend!



One of my pretty male Cardinals in the snow.


A puffy Blue Jay.

Coming up this week is St. Patrick's Day, I am sharing an Irish blessing..

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.




Like the warmth of the sun
and the light of the day
May the luck of the Irish
shine bright on your way......Happy St. Patrick's Day!


Now I am looking forward to seeing your critters.. Thanks for stopping by and as always I appreciate your nice comments..

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Nice colors, red, blue and green. Our granddaughters usually visit us during St Patty Day week but instead will be here for Easter break. We had to send the Leprechaun ("Shamus") out to Illinois as they expect him to appear magically on the morning of the 17th and create all kinds of mischief around the house-- green popcorn scattered on the floor, torn up papers, backward chairs, spilled milk etc. We will miss that but your green teddies cheer us up!

orchid Miyako said...

Hello, Just got home from a nice trip to Arkansas to celebrate George's birthday. I will blog about it tomorrow.

Now--it's time to start working in the yard, cleaning up all of the 'junk' from the ice storm. What a mess!!!

Hope you are doing well. Love your birdie photos.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Your puffy birds are so pretty!! The blessings were sweet as well. We had a St. Patrick's parade in Baton Rouge over the weekend and it looked like a war was fought with green plastic beads! I should've photographed the aftermath. :/
