Fly Baby Fly

We still have the flying squirrel in the blue bird box and we may have baby's
soon for the mating season is February to March. When we go out on the patio after dark
  she looks out . They don't really fly they glide from tree to tree.
She  eats will at the bird feeder after the birds get their fill in the day time.

Frank and Cloody

and our visit
In their new home in Houston Texas. On a Valentine's Day in the village Frank and Cloody
 were King and Queen, so we ask Cloody if we could bring them something from Arkansas?
Cloody said yes I want my crown they took away from me. Here is Cloody with a crown and sceptor.
We told her it had magical powers and if she waved it at Frank he would disappear.

The next day she was still trying. I will show their home and gardens next.

Through the woods and pass the hay field on the south side of our house the city is building the new fairgrounds.
this will be the back of the grounds I zoomed in on this so it is not to close to us and a road runs at the bottom of the hay field.
By fall this could be a bad thing?
