Shadow Shots Backyard

banana tree

NOTE: this post has been sitting in my drafts since April 30..it was spring then.. it is HOT Summer now. we are waking up to 82 degrees.. 

It's spring and our Jungle is calling my name....


So there's these 2 muffins in an oven.

They're both sitting, just chilling and getting baked.

And one of them yells "Holy Smoke, it's hot in here!"

And the other muffin replies "Holy Moly, a talking muffin!"



from my archives

I kid you not, our cardinal sang this song for 17 straight hours one day... from 4 am until bedtime. the same notes. over and over and over...

Good gracious that's a whole lot of singing!

Gorgeous photos! I think that's the only song God gave the cardinal, but it's one of my favorite tunes. Have you heard the crows? Lol

Rebecca said...

It must have been mating and singing his love song all day long. I remember that feeling!

I love your backyard jungle, it's my favorite color! Muffin talk... Hilarious! I guess that cardinal thought you needed a song so he serenaded you!

You make me LOL
Several years ago my daughter asked me if I'd make some corn muffis when they came to home. I said sure but I don't have a good muffis recipe.
We still laugh over that

I would like those ferns and the banana tree in my garden, but the Cardinal bird might be a bit much if it's making that 'phew phew whistle whistle whistle' song for hours on end. Have a good day!

We are having lovely temps here--mid-70s and most welcome!!

I have a lot of catching up to do in blogland.

Best,

Your shadow shots made me think of my early days of enjoying your posts. I think that must have been four years and I am still enjoying your images, shared thoughts and humor.

You videoed the cardinal singing! And a cute song, could you hear him from inside? Sounds a bit like rap. Perhaps he was really needing a lady bird. As always, I love the sun on the huge leaves and ferns! First favorite today, the cardinal in the flowers, next is the first picture of the shadows on the leaves.

Beautiful! I love the Cardinal song,but after that many hours it would get to be a bit much.

Susannah said...

The shadows are spectacular. Makes for such beautiful photos. I hear the cardinals singing around here......maybe he was looking for a mate?

You live in a tropical paradise...my husband once grew a banana plant in the house here in Wisconsin. I'm glad we had tall ceilings...never saw a banana! I finally made him take it outside...

Ida said...

Sounds pretty humid there. It's been warm but not to hot here lately. Hoping for a little rain this coming week. Everything looks lush and green in your yard. Wow that Cardinal sounded pretty but 17 hours....might get little annoying after awhile.

Chatty Crone said...

How did you feel after all that singing that many hours straight?

Grandma C said...

I like sword fern yours looks nice!

Scott said...

Fun playing around with shadows and I love your cardinal. I wish we had them in Utah.

SquirrelQueen said...

The cardinal has a sweet song, I hope his lady friend appreciated it. Your backyard jungle is so pretty with all that green and the shadows.

Silly muffin!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Poor guy must be lovesick to sing that long!

Ann said...

Not a bad song to listen to but I'm pretty sure after 17 straight hours of it I would have had enough :)

Always enjoy the light and shadows you share. Would love to see a cardinal but they rarely come this far north.

Cardinals sure can be persistent!

It's always interesting to see what you have in your back yard. Wow, it is certainly hot over there. WE have some nice sunny weather over here for a change, but it's not as hot as there though, maybe around +20 C or so
