parley view parsnip. . . the weekend

Before we start the new week, 
here are a few photos from the weekend.
.
 The Square Ones on the ride back from their Herbal Body Wraps !
awwwwww such sweet boys.
.
 Watson looking very handsome.
.

 Carrots growing in the protected east side yard.
.
 So very green.
.
 The pack rat critter remover found 5 big nest around my home.
They are so destructive that I have to have the service out four times a year.
They have trap them first and then clean out the nests
because a new family of pack rats will just move in.
I saw a very large hawk trying to figure out how to open the trap for his lunch.
.
 Sorry about the blurry photos.
.

 
 Later a roadrunner came and also tried to figure out how to get the pack rat out.
All the photos of the hawk and roadrunner in a standoff came out blurry.
They both stared at each other across from the trap but then moved on.
The hawk was the last to move.
.

 The sun shinning on some of my necklaces on my desk.
Instead of where they should be.
But it makes for a interesting photo.
.

.........................

And just because I can here is your pretty to start the week.
Another entry for John's Flower and Veggie show.
.
 The fruit of a Prickly Pear Cactus, as a happy zombie.
.
This zombie is for John who loves The Walking Dead.

  2. Bird pictures (or any critter) just make me happy. We have a Cooper's Hawk nesting on my property. The crows dive bomb him regularly and he couldn't care less; it's sort of funny to watch.

  4. I'm assuming rabbits would get at those carrots if they weren't fenced off!

    The boys look in fine form!

  11. Herbal body wraps? Wow, are we spoiled? You don't have to answer that one. Are the pack rats like the roof rats that built nests in our attic every year in the desert. They were so annoying! Guess Hawk is not doing her normal job. She's fired!

  13. Hello Parsnip, the dogs must have loved their wraps, they look so good and happy. Rats that is horrible. That raptor must have been frustrated that he could not reach this great meal. Love the zombie veggie.
    Regards,
    Roos
