For Gloria

Gloria was talking about a White Tailed Dove who was sitting on a nest in her yard in Chile. She had a pretty photo of Mrs. Dove as her header photo last week. So when I saw this Mourning Dove in my backyard, I thought I'd post it here to show her. They look very similar. Although, I'm sure Mrs. Mourning Dove would rather be in Chile where it is now summer! She has all of her petticoats fluffed up to keep her warm, doesn't she? Dressing in layers, you know! ha. So here you are, Gloria! I wanted you to see my dove from Ohio! And if the rest of you haven't been to the lovely Gloria's cooking blog, click HERE. She's also funny, intelligent, lovely, and a great photographer. :)

  3. Silver ~ I know..no WIDW. I ran errands and put away groceries. Not really post-worthy. ha.

    Gloria ~ maybe Mrs. Dove had gone out to eat. ha. Moving?

  4. Aww, she looks so fluffy. Wonder if she would mind if I touched the hem of her petticoat--to see if it is soft. :)

  5. Only one time I saw she let the nest but normally dont move, today is late I have to see in the morning!
    Thanks by your post Betsy also is not Silver wanted. But I enjoyed your dove picture!

  10. Betsy, did you get any snow yet?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Opp Betsy, Silver dont like my "post" but I like Betsy:)

    ReplyDelete
  12. aaah you talk about snow and here I die with the hot day!! was terrible 34° C

    ReplyDelete
  13. Gloria, I was just telling my kids that you have been swimming every day. They had to look at the globe to see where you live. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. show to them please, heyy dear I will take some pictures of the pool and I will send you, the pool is not perfect (we need paint) but is nice!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Betsy this dove is like me: shy!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Gloria, what do you mean I don't like the post? "That was great, especially being for Gloria..." meant that it was a nice post, even nicer because it was dedicated to you.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Gloria, I would love to have a pool, but it's a little scary with tiny children. Maybe in a couple years.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Silver, are you ignoring my suggestion. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. We had a dusting this morning but that is all. It's cold...20 degrees! But the rain yesterday washed away any snow we had. I'd love a good foot or two!

    ReplyDelete
  20. The "What I Did Wednesday?" If I did one of those, it'd be boring, not like Betsy's.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Betsy, We have about 1 foot--supposed to get a little more tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sorry Silver only I see you say you wanted the other post what I did? sorry

    Rebecca is nice a pool but have a lot of work:)
    and Yes I havent when the kids were little

    ReplyDelete
  23. Silver, you might be surprised how interesting it would be, don't you have a cat--you could post about what he did.

    ReplyDelete
  24. What Orson Did Wednesday.

    I like that!

    ReplyDelete
  25. He posted about the cat time ago, but would be nice again:) Love Orson Talk:)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Betsy today I taked some pictures of horses!! but I dont know where post:( maybe in the sidebar

    ReplyDelete
  27. A foot of snow would be nice! I love it deep like that, especially when the roads have been cleared.

    Gloria ~ yes, she IS shy. I had to wait and wait before she would even look over my way. ha.
    So, what did you say about moving today? Did you mean you were busy?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Gloria ~ you should open up a second blog where you can post things other than the cooking!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I dont know Betsy with one blog Im busy, maybe two blogs are too much. Anyway sometimes when I put a recipe I made a introduction like you make your wednesdays, are special horses because are police horses did you know?

    ReplyDelete
  30. @Betsy: I'd let Orson write that himself. Then again, I almost had a "what I did today" post by Orson, months ago, and I decided that was boring... so it never got posted.

    @Gloria: I was just teasing Betsy about no WIDW post. I wasn't "upset" because she replaced it with a post dedicated to you!

    @Rebecca: Orson's mostly black, with some brown. Unless he's really close to you, he looks all black.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I went to the phicologist with daugther and there I taked some pictures! but we arrive so late a while ago!

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Gloria: Well, as I said, he looks black until you see him up close.

    @Rebecca: I've actually done a few posts about Orson, and a couple written by Orson.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Gloria ~ well you had a busy day then!

    No, I didn't know they were police horse! How nice!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yes you will see are beautiful I know you love horses Betsy María Esperanza dont like cause are from police haha

    ReplyDelete
  35. Well I dont see close Silver ha
    only I think when I see the pictures

    ReplyDelete
  36. True, Gloria ~ I wouldn't be able to do a second blog. One is plenty for me!

    ReplyDelete
  37. @Betsy: I've tried that in the past, doll. In fact, at one point, I had three! But now, I can't even handle one, apparently. Heh.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Silver, awww, a black kitty. My cat is grey. I'll have to search thru your archives to find Orsons posts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Gloria ~ well, my dad was a policeman, so that wouldn't bother me at all. I used to like the police dogs when I was really young. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  40. So pretty..at first I thought she was wrapped around a pinecone !

    That's a great shot!

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Rebecca: At least on of the posts on my Foxyblog has links to previous posts on my "retired" blog, David'Z RantZ. Hope you like whatever you encounter.

  42. nanny ~ she does look like that! ha. Kind of like camouflage!

    ReplyDelete
  43. She should take all her petticoats and go to the shady rest
    Might be warmer there and pass the test..lol
    Giving Gloria a shout too

  44. Pat ~
    Of course it's nice of me
    I'm as sweet as can be
    and I know you really aren't surprised
    I'm just as you would have surmised.
    Didn't say strat either
    which may have given some a fever.

    ReplyDelete
  45. haha prob would have gave them a more is she crazy look
    As strat is only known to those who read the book
    But I suppose can be surmised easy enough
    As it isn't that tough

    ReplyDelete
  46. Maybe I'll start typing WTS, as in what-the-strat
    and then I'll tell them to blame the Cat.
    ha.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Another great photo off of your camera. I could just about reach in and feel the feathers on that dove. Somebody should be paying you to do this!

    ReplyDelete
