My Springtime Buddies and Other Sundries--by Buster

We like Springtime!
Lots of things and new friends come out to play....
My humomm especially does not like
when these little red oak catkins
come out and
fillllllll
my beard,
my legs,
my tail,
and
ears,
with these funny
little hitch-hikers!
They're everywhere!
in the house,
in my
bed..
on the driveway,
and stuck to my
beard!


There are only a few in this picture, because I had already rubbed my face all over the carpet......


But the humomm does like it when the turtles
swim by...
this little guy looks like one of our resident
turtles, "elmer", who lived in our house
for many years.
My human brother, Andy, was called "swims w/turtles"....
he would take "elmer" out in the water and they would
swim... "elmer" would go right up
to Andy's nose and didn't leave him, do turtles imprint?
Elmer was the size of a half dollar when
he came to live with us.



SHHHHHH quiet...see these tiny
guys?
We have to be quiet or they'll
flit away. May be Maggie and Mitche's dad
needs some of these for his barn raising?
They like to eat flying bugs and squeeterz.



OH MY!
Mr. Hawk...Sitting on the University roof!..watch
out barn swallows!
oh oh...
he's a resident Hartford Hawk!
Do mascot's get paid to just
make an appearance?



This pretty rainbow came after the very nasty storm that
came flying through this week... The winds were
so bad -- that while everyone was gone
they broke our BIG umbrella
out doors on the deck.
It started out as a very pretty blue day
and
WHOOSH!
they found the umbrella upside down in the wisteria!


We went out looking for the pot of gold...didn't find it, yet.
Maybe next storm.

This is theBUSTER reporting on the latest
SPRINGtime happenings here in
beaUtiful
Connecticut.
bye for now,
theBUSTER, Ms.Blue & Ms.Persephone
relaxing in the sunshine!

We have two big oak trees close to the house and we are all wearing those catkins now. Mom tries to pull them out before we get inside, but we have them on our big hairy feet , in our tails and on our ears. We like wearing them so much that we've been rolling in them.

Two barn swallows are already trying to take up residence at the Crump barn site, Buster! They think the top of the light bulb is a great place to raise a family! hummmmmmmmm
