Share a smile... Smiles Friday, week 77 
...this one says it all, from facebook  (my answer - men), just shaking my head but it did give me a chuckle.
It's been a wonderful week at our place, no complaints.  Tonight we are also cheering as all the documents are signed and delivered for the sale of our investment house, now just the banks workings.
I have a series of morning photos of hubby feeding the drongos this week. We get around 10 - 15 birds all come for a feed - tiny bits of chopped up pet meat, which you toss in the air and the birds swoop in and grab.  They even hover a few feet away for 5-10 seconds waiting. Some will perch on the railing and take it from your fingers. I took a lot of photos from behind the pole as the sun had just risen over the hill and I was amazed that I got some really good shots.

We really enjoy feeding the birds and we also get magpies, kookaburras and butcher birds, but photos of them another time.  Now we have to bribe the kitties to stay indoors.
Lastly a couple of shots of flowers in the garden the early morning sun on them caught my eye.

 Have a glorious weekend, smile, be happy LITS Robyn


  1. I'm really loving your smiles this week Robyn. How lucky are you to feed birds like that and those flowers are stunning. Good luck with the house buy.

  13. Hi Robyn,

    Congrats on the signing of the paperwork on your house. I love the shots of the birds, the sun shining through their wings.

    Oh, the photo of the trees in the middle of the sidewalk rather than the obvious spots really cracked me up! Right now our town has construction on TWO of the busiest roads in town - don't know who thinks up these things!



Thank you for taking the time to comment, all encouragement and inspiration is very welcome. May your day be a happy and extra special one, cheers Robyn
