The cute little Chipmunk above reminded me a little of the old expression, see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, or however that went...
I think that I began using Photoshop Elements, and, or Picasa in 2005 ish...
A few weeks ago, I began to delete more items.
I can usually do 10,000 easy.
The other day, we had storms and the husby was away for the day.
What then should I do with my time...delete, delete, delete, and by the time my recycle bin was ready to empty, I had deleted 15, 583 more files...whew and yeah!
While viewing every single one that I deleted...goodness grief, I found some that I did not remember using before, and if they were used, they could be again, and maybe no one would be the wiser, hopefully.
These were my leftovers, that for whatever reason, I happened to like and wanted to share.
They are at least Spring images and so not too way off from mid-Summer heat.
So here goes...what are these, I shall explain, and in the meantime...
Have a great week, be happy and stay safe~

Wild Bird Wednesday
I have lived in Borowick Farms for 32 years.
Never in all of this time, have I seen Red-headed Woodpeckers.
There are some about 9 miles from here, but never in our neighborhood.
A couple was out walking one day, that live around the large block from us and I had my camera in hand.
They asked me what I was photographing and I told them birds.
They said that they had a pair of Red-headed Woodpeckers nesting in a tree in their back yard.
I could not walk there fast enough ;)~
Spring above in Cave Hill Cemetery, also known for their Botanical Gardens, and below a different Chipmunk trying to stay frozen, so that I will not notice it...shush, don't say a word ;)~
In the Spring, I see fields of these flowers and pretend that they are fields of Lavender in Provence, or Tuscany, or even Washington state.
I do not know what they are, yet they always look so pretty.
These same fields now have 6' tall Corn stalks growing.
I have asked others before and have been told, they are just weeds...but they must have a name~
An Eastern Bluebird checking out it's territory just before the first clutch of young arrived. They ended up rearing 3 clutches this season...busy, busy.
They thrive right across the lane from me, but only come across to catch insects and a quick visit~
There are always nests of American Robins, like the newly fledged below, on my 2 acres though.
Usually the pairs will raise two clutches a season.
Many of these sadly are taken early on by feral cats and hawks~
I have to smile at the mosaic below, for that little bench is now on the burn pile...huge sigh!
When our neighbor moved in down the corner from us, it was going to be placed in the rubbish and I adopted it and carried it home.
I placed it out where my wildflowers grow, and I so enjoyed it.
The weather was not at all kind to it and it fell apart, and now all that remains are these images~
Another piece of one person's junk, became a treasure to me below.
That picnic table is huge and it has served many a picnics over the years, as well as a tray that serves up bird seed and other nibbles for wildlife.
It has grown a coat of moss now, and we no longer use it, but until it rots apart, it stays where it was hauled off to many moons ago~
Many of you, as well as myself describe lanes that we travel on, when we go out looking for photography opportunities.
This is one of the country lanes, that I often drive along in search of the big one...ha, and I am still searching~
This has served as a bird feeder, plant holder, frozen berries in Winter holder for many years in my English garden.
This past Spring, it was for flowers~
The White-throated Sparrows arrive in the Autumn and leave the start of Spring.
This one remained a little longer than the others~
Below...not my favorite bird, at all, but still a beauty.
The Northern Mockingbird makes beautiful music, and looks quite attractive, but they absolutely take over an entire acre, or more all Winter into Spring, when it comes to keeping the other songbirds away.
They are quite brave and even will go after a hawk, dog, or human, if they feel threatened~
My oldest daughter lives at Crystal Lake, about 3 miles away.
One day, when going to visit her, I came across this beautiful Common Grackle.
It heard me, saw me and quickly dashed away into the wood, but I did manage a few quick images to share~
A pair of American Crows acting silly high up in a tree, creating all kinds of noise, for any one passing by~
One morning while taking photographs in my side garden, I happened to be viewing my gazing ball, and decided to get some fun images of our home and in the process, ended up also catching a few selfies.
Oh well, they are creative and that is always fun too~
