Red Finch Sitting Pretty on Norfolk Island Pine

I like the day after Christmas - time to kick-back, relax & eat pumpkin pie for breakfast and lots of other leftovers, maybe even share some. Today is overcast here - unbelievable, I know - so this photo is from last December of a tropical pine in our complex.

How pretty Tash! I am such a bird lover. I got really excited this afternoon when I saw a bluebird checking out my bluebird box in the backyard. I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Pumpkin pie for breakfast? We had some for lunch. Breakfast was apple pie.

Happy Boxer day.

I'm with you, I'm kicking back (sort of). Actually going through plastic bins of paperwork and writing on a piece of paper whats in each. I don't know why I didn't do this before.

Lovely photo. The Northfolk pine is a favorite of mine. They have differing and rare varieties of this pine in Lacy Park

...and a partridge in a pear tree!

Beautiful shot. Indeed a lazy day. I had honey baked ham and eggs for breakfast - a real treat!

Thanks for sharing your St. Stephen's Day experience in Vienna. What a great day that must have been.

«Louis» has got to show this to Mme la Vache. She loves birds - had she seen this, she would have taken the camera right from «Louis's» hooves and shot this image herself!

This is beautiful! Merry Christmas -- a day late -- Tash! We were in Palos Verdes at my husband's family gathering on Christmas afternoon.

A nice shot for the day after, you gave us a very good description of what this day should be!

I wish I could hear it singing. And see that blue, blue sky.

Pumpkin pie for breakfast is the best! This tree is huge and the way you captured the little bird at the top is classic. I enjoyed your Vienna photo and posting at your other blog - such a contrast to sunny California!

Things could hardly look more different where I am right now. Send us a little bit of sunshine!

Thanks for your visits and comments over in Villigen. They're much appreciated.
