Dreaming Dreams

Spring 2017 032

All through the winter,

I have been dreaming dreams –

of a blossoming spring.

On soft pussy paws,

I padded through the snow,

came the melting streams,

mama hated my muddy paws.

Now a sunny spring,

has danced into the garden,

I am as happy as can be,

still dreaming dreams –

waiting for the first songbirds to sing.

My Friend the Crow

Pigeons and such 002

Slowly the spring is coming and my friend the crow came for a pizza party. He has three friends and they all enjoy my garden. I will see them more often now that the snows are melting away.

Best Days

Now 005

Best days in my life,

are when I can be dreaming,

the sweetest dream I have.

No matter what the season,

come rain or shine,

my days go along just fine.

SID 001

In the spring I love to run about to see,

all the flowers in bloom

and migratory birds returning.

Summer days just fly by,

till autumn comes again.

Then my days sleeping in the sun,

out in the garden are done.

Moving on indoors,

my best days are spent dreaming,

far from the winter chill.

The Crows and I

Just Taken 004

We have gray and rainy days now. I roam outside and climb upon the garage roof to see my crow friends. We have four large crows that come to visit us in the garden. Mom has taken the time to take photos. Not too clear but they will do. Me on the garage roof.

Early Morning Riot

Just Loaded 007

There I was al comfy and cozy sleeping in the early morn. Had a short run and then came in to relax.

Just Loaded 013 As I was drifting off to sleep mama had put breakfast out for the birds that come in the garden. Suddenly there was loud and annoying cawing from the large crows that arrive to enjoy the food.

Finally I found that I could no longer sleep peacefully.

Sid quote: When you find that something has greatly disturbed your sleep the best thing you can do is move over closer to your PC and start gathering inspiration until you can once again begin to dream.


Bird Party


There is a lesson to be learned when Mama puts out food for the birds that fly into our garden.


I sit upon the fence or windowsill and watch them gather together and feed. Mama got some photos of the birds before they flew away. Here is what I learned.

Sid quote: If birds come to feed in your garden don’t make too much movement and don’t make too much noise. Otherwise the birds will fly up and make a whole lot of noise.
