Happy Father's Day!

Thinking of our Dad and wishing that we could wish him Happy Father's Day. 
We miss you Dad.

I think the Dad in this house had a good one.  I know the birds had a great one!  We had a window bird feeder before, but it wouldn't stick to the window and didn't hold much.  We took it down when the squirrels started throwing it around, but the tufted titmice just kept flying into the window looking for it.  Now we have a new one!  The suet feeder got lost when we had the trees trimmed and that made the woodpeckers very sad.  We have several different kinds of woodpeckers here - downy, red headed, red bellied, pileated and even sapsuckers and flickers.  I love to watch them and while they come to the seed feeder, more come to the suet feeder. 

While we were putting up the suet feeder, I discovered that Danny, my fig tree has fruit!  There are at least 9 or 10 figs growing on him!  First year for fruit and I don't even know when to expect it to get ripe!

Looks like you had a fun Father's Day! (:

It's such a fun thing when plants start bearing fruit. Even if the bugs get most of them... *sigh*
