Too Many Squirrels?

Can you have too many squirrels in your yard? I say yes! This is bird food not squirrel food! I also caught them cutting down the corn! I think they are drinking the water out of the stalks. I am not sure. I will have to Google. There are so many squirrels in our neighborhood that I call our road Squirrel Suicide Alley. I have always liked I am not sure.

I put Vaseline on the edges of the feeder!
Checking it out!

I think that it may have worked!

Here comes another one!

Early Morning Flowers

The smell from the gardenia's in the front of the house is intoxicating!  I wish you could smell them!  These are a few shots from some of the flowers in the yard.  I just had the urge this morning!  What a great way to start your Monday morning!  

This rose bush was not doing too finally has a bud on it!

I love the Elephant Ears!

I entered a photo contest earlier this month.  I entered four photographs for each category.  Blooms, Water, People and Wildlife.  Out of 80 entries, I was one of 15 winners.  I won 1st place in the Blooms category!  My other photo's are below.  I actually thought the photo of the fountains was the winner because it has been repinned so many times on Pinterest!  I was suprised!
