Thoughtful Thursday - My Own Neighborhood

~What's That You See Arwen??~
~Oooh a Hungry Robin Running through the Yard!~
~And a 2-Egger By the Look of That Belly!~

It was a nice day today, so I thought I would take Arwen for our first dry-ish walk of the year (we haven't been able to go out during the winter as the snow makes the roads too narrow to not get hit by other cars, and the spring makes the roads ridiculously muddy). It was beautiful, just before sunset....the birds were chirping....the frogs were croaking in the swamps....the shoulders were covered in garbage! I couldn't believe it! The day after earth day and I was standing on my country road, surrounded by nature that is covered by trash! I was appalled to say the least. So, I have decided to go out tomorrow on our walk and bring a garbage bag and rubber gloves to pick up as much as I am able to. I think I may do better to bring a wheelbarrow, but I'll do what I can.
Is there anything you can do to beautify your neighborhood? Arwen has decided (well, I have decided for her) that she will not chase the robins anymore!


  1. We have robins hopping around in our yard, too. It's so nice to see and hear the birds! :-)

  2. That's a great photo of Arwen! And how nice of you two to pick up trash - thanks for doing that.

  3. Mom saw robins when she went to Kansas City last week. WE don't see them much here in Florida.

  4. I love that photo of Arwen! We only see robins in our area occasionally and I always take a moment to watch them.

  5. Thank you for all of your kind words! Arwen is still working on not chasing robins - I just stopped her (again). We are working on that :s
    The robins are always a wonderful addition in the spring - their songs are simply beautiful.
