Sunday Stills – Spring Green – 03.21 .21

The feature image is a Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly. There are over 550 species of these large butterflies within the family called Papilionidae. The forked hindwings that can be seen when they rest like this butterfly is what gave them the common name of Swallowtail.

This post is in response to TERRI WEBSTER SCHRANDT Sunday Stills challenge. The theme this week is Spring Green.

Georgia

Large white house with a beautiful front porch on a large plot of land in Georgia.

Home to one of Frank’s relatives in his dad’s hometown in Georgia. The property was large and been the family for many generations.

Florida

Heaven, our bichon frise hiking her leg on a yellow fire hydrant.  Yes, she thinks she is a boy dog.

Heaven is a girl dog. She hikes her leg like a boy dog and I caught her peeing on this yellow fire hydrant while out on our walk. We call her Miss Territorial!

This small green spider was hanging on to the door of my car.  It was smaller than a US dime - 1/2" (1.27 cm).

Montana

Bridger Creek Golf Course in Bozeman, Montana.  This is a public golf course with the mountains standing stoic behind the tree lined fairways and greens.

Whimsical

I like to color. As a kid, I always wanted the large pack of crayons and never got them. As an adult, I purchased the 120 count and you can tell they are used. There are a lot of greens here that include names like fern and shamrock. Gumby sits in my office and was given to me by a coworker several years ago because I’m so flexible with deadlines.

I was wearing my "Lucky Grandma" t-shirt and green wig on St. Patrick's Day, 2018.  I was designing a t-shirt for a client on my computer.  If you would like to see what costume that green wig goes to, check out my blog here.  It's worth a peak.  Yes, that is me when you see it!

Tweety, our Peach-faced Lovebird was so photogenic and I will take any opportunity to show him off. Unfortunately, he died at the claws of a Red-tailed Hawk. We have framed photos of him hanging in our bathroom as a reminder of just how awesome he really was.


Birds Well with Others vinyl decal that can be placed on your car, window or so many other things.  It can be applied indoor or outdoors.

Of course I’m a birder and love to bird. This vinyl decal is available in my Etsy Shop if you love birds as much as I do. All my vinyl decals can be used indoor or outdoor.

    • Thanks Terri! It seems to do ok for me. Freckles and all. No red hair, but I had a red tint in my brown hair as a kid. The red in my hair was dark red as in American Indian color. Yeah, Heaven is a mixed up little dog. LOL! 🙂

  1. I didn’t notice the butterfly with the petunias at first until you mentioned it. made a nice photo even better. I like how you got your Gumby nickname, and great St. Paddy’s Day outfit1

  2. I’m not a spider person (far, far from it), but that is a pretty excellent spider.
    Aw, poor Tweety. Peach-faced lovebird are one of my favorites. There are feral flocks of them in the Phoenix metro and I always feel privileged to catch a glimpse of them.

    • I’m not a spider person either but he was cute and unusual. Yeah, poor Tweety! I freaked out! Saw it all happen. Them being feral in Phoenix is not really a good thing but what are you going to do. I’m sure catching them in the feral wild is pretty cool though. 🙂

      • The lovebirds don’t seem to harmful to native species and are apparently pretty hardy. The seem to have found an interesting urban niche for themselves.

      • That is good to know. We have had the same thing happen in St. Petersburg, FL. The Nanday Parakeets got let loose many years ago and they are reproducing in large flocks now. Not native here, but they are thriving in the tropical environment. 🙂
