EASTER MORNING COFFEE WITH OUR NEW NEIGHBORS...

i found the images to follow on Pinterest several weeks ago.


their natural, simple statement captured my attention.
(perfect...for my Easter morning post)


yesterday morning, while i was putting together
my blog post...Mr D called my name...
"Lynne, come here...we have a Quail in our front yard!"


we observed the visiting Quail return to the large mound of Pampas
grass, in our neighbor's side yard, across 34th street street.
soon after his return, a hen and three babies appeared.


this morning we woke early to find the family scurrying back and forth,
across the street to our front yard and drive.

last year we planted some natural grasses is our front yard. perhaps
we have created condos for the Quail to propagate in the city!

   we poured our coffee, and silently hung out the dining room window watching the activity...
...until the crows showed up!

He is risen!
Happy Easter!

  5. Happy Easter, Lynne! I hope yours was a wonderful and blessed one! :) The photos are gorgeous and oh! I love that little egg tied with that bit of twine~ so cute! :) And your story of the quail is so sweet, and I guess they know a good place to live when they find one! :)

    Blessings to you, dear friend!

  6. What a cute post. I would love to see a quail family. Once my sister had a wild turkey walking in her yard...they are not so cute. Smiles, Susie(She Junks)
