Oh My Goodness Gracious~

Whew...I feel as though I may have finally landed...on a new layout.  For those who viewed the new one yesterday...it turned completely white late this morning.  Then, I could not even find that layout on blogger...anywhere...yet it was there just yesterday...go figure, I was not that crazy about it anyway...so there blogger!

That meant that I had to locate another new one and I think that I have finally landed on one that will work, until it disappears  too, hopefully not anytime soon.

The Red-bellied Woodpecker was enjoying some of the suet shared by other birds in the back garden area the other day.  Of all of the birds in our area, they can be the naughtiest and yet I do love them anyway~

  5. you take the most awesome of bird photos. I like the new layout. I had trouble with Blogger last evening - when I tried to leave comments the box was so tiny I couldn't even see what I was typing. and the profile pages on blogs has changed. That was the first clue that something was amiss and they were making changes. all is back to normal this morning, except for the profile page layouts. I'll get used to it I guess. but your new look here is smashing. love the red-belly photos! happy Tuesday to you Mary.

  15. I like the white background Mary, very smart. That pecker was very determined to grab some of the food and great shots of it too.
