A Northern Flicker enjoying a cool drink.  So many creatures are drawn to the creek and it just seems to teem with life.

I visited my mother today.  She's now been in the care center for four years.  Now that the winter is over I can get over and see her more.  My brother and his son, my sister and her husband and I do what we can to try to brighten up her days.  I found some peonys at Safeway, I think I enjoyed them as much as she did. 

I hope you have a great weekend.                   Diane

How pretty Diane, we get flickers here also, and they're so pretty.
You're Mom is lucky to have such caring "kids". And I'm sure the peonies really brightened her day. By the way, I LOVE your new header picture, it's beautiful!!

So glad you are able to visit your mother more often now and that other family members are there to brighten her day too. Hope you have a great weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day. Tammy

I am off to visit my mother today. A lovely drive down the Bitterroot Valley, lunch at our fav restaurant and then shopping. I am taking presents as well. :) Have a lovely weekend. Kit

It is so awesome that you get shots like these. It takes me a minute to see the bird even in a photograph. How nice that you see him and capture it on film and then share with all of us out here. Thank you.
