Happy 14th birthday luca...3 days late ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿฅณ

we love this boy so much! he had just arrived to south carolina from germany (this was 3 years ago) when we first met him. so many changes in his life but he was as sweet as could be and totally relaxed. when he gave olivia his signature lip waggle, she was completely smitten. we welcomed him to our family. he helped her in her recovery from back surgery and they formed a beautiful bond right away. eva also fell hard for this guy once he arrived in kansas. can’t blame her. he’s incredibly lovable and his silliness just makes you laugh ๐Ÿฆ„โค๏ธ

My little bluebird of happiness ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆœ
.
i’m still smiling from yesterday evening ๐Ÿ˜ the hummingbirds came to drink from my handheld feeder!! it was absolutely the coolest experience to feel the air from their wings blowing on my hand like a mini ac unit. squeaker claimed me (me as a flower) and started guarding me ๐Ÿ˜‚ the birds buzzed all around me chasing each other and stopping to feed many times. they still had access to all their normal feeders so it was truly amazing to me that they actually came to my hand โ˜บ๏ธ i didn’t get video of them at my hand but i put what i got in my stories ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿงš‍โ™€๏ธ

Our little adventurer ๐Ÿ†
.
ever is always ready to explore. do your fur kids like to go outside for adventures or are they happiest snuggled up indoors? i think our dogs are a mix of both but ever definitely prefers to be outside on a nice day ๐Ÿ˜ธโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Tryna look tough while doing morning stretches ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿงš๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ

this is squeaker and he got his name because of his non stop chattering at the feeders. i imagine he’s saying “mine mine mine all mine” ๐Ÿ˜’ he’s kinda the resident bully and tries to chase away the others. fortunately i have enough feeders up that he can’t guard them all though he definitely gives it his best shot ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜…

Flashing it back to when winter and sprig were attached at the wing ๐Ÿ’œ

sprig is doing well. he’s healed up but kinda looks scraggly since he’s partially bald on his head. still a cutie though and willow loves him all the same ๐Ÿ’›

I took a break from posting to my gallery but if you continued following my stories these past couple of weeks, then you’ve watched my hummingbird (and birds in general) population grow at my house. although clover lost her eggs ๐Ÿ’” (to a predator) and doesn’t come anymore, she did make one visit with her two males. the boys have decided to come visit everyday now and i’m guessing that clover (๐Ÿฆ†) is sitting on eggs somewhere close by. we also have in our garden, finches, sparrows, swallows, cardinals, grackles, cowbirds, mourning doves and my favorites, the hummingbirds. i counted 6 hummers at my front garden yesterday evening and i’m guessing there’s at least a few more at feeders around back. my husband has named one of the new males squeaker because he goes on chattering even while he’s drinking ๐Ÿ˜‚ keeping feeders clean and filled is a lot of work (i scrub them every other day) but so worth the efforts. love my sassy little fairy birds ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿงš‍โ™€๏ธ

lots of questions about where we get feeders and other pet/animal products. you’ll find it all at the link in the “๐Ÿ›’” highlight ๐Ÿ˜Š

we’ve missed you all! the break has been nice though and much needed. everyone here is feeling better and we’ve been enjoying the amazing weather we’re having in our part of kansas. how are you guys doing? hoping to catch up soon ๐Ÿ’—

I’ve always been honest with you guys about my feelings so i have to tell you now, i’m kinda struggling on a few levels at the moment. if i’m not very consistent with posting, answering dm’s and just generally a bit absent from social media, this is why. i’m kind of in a slump. i don’t feel like taking pictures. i don’t feel like editing. i’ve taken on big projects like decluttering my house and working on the garden. it fills my time and the results are enjoyable.

i miss finn so much still. it’s really a big hole in my life. freya was doing well i thought but now she’s started begging to be put up in finn’s old crate downstairs. she wants to stay in there all day. it breaks my heart. she enjoys her time at the farm, as you’ve seen in my stories, but as soon as we’re home, she wants to be in the crate ๐Ÿ˜” sydney (my oldest) hasn’t been feeling well. lingering side effects from her cancer and treatment. waiting to have her seen by a specialist. sprig and river got in a fight and sprig is pretty beat up. fighting between these guys is normal and usually not bad because they can fly away from each other since they’re free in my room and wings are not clipped. sprig managed to get himself wedged between things to where he couldn’t escape. fortunately, he seems to be healing up well and is otherwise acting normal. a lot to focus on.

anyway, it’s not all sadness over here but just wanted you to know where i’m at and why i might not be posting as often or as much new content at the moment. i’m sure this will pass but in the meantime i’m trying to get everyone feeling better, including myself ๐Ÿ’—

Time to introduce you to another one of the wonderful animal friends we have over at the farm where we keep our horses ๐Ÿˆ this is miss lola. you might remember her brother edgar that i shared here last month (and in case you missed him, you can swipe to see the gorgeous boy ๐Ÿฆ). very different looks the two have but both are beautiful and sweet. miss lola especially is always ready to be loved on and happy to crawl into your lap for a nice snuggle โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’•

Slide to see this little guy put on a brilliant color show ๐Ÿ˜

a lot of you have been asking what i put in the hummingbird feeders. i follow the @audubonsociety recommendation of 4 parts hot water to one part white sugar. boil for a couple of minutes and fill feeders once it’s at room temperature. i make extra and keep in my fridge. it’s really important to keep the feeders clean and nectar fresh. i only fill a little and then every 2-3 days i throw out what’s left and clean the feeders with a water and vinegar mix. then rinse with hot water multiple times. once a week i scrub with brushes. it’s extremely important nectar doesn’t ferment and feeders don’t grow mold so that we can keep our little friends safe and happy ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโค๏ธ

Today my blue dino turns 2! happy hatchday river! ๐Ÿฆ•๐ŸŽˆ
.
this guy. he’s my little buddy. he loves me in a way none of the other birds do. when he first arrived, olivia and i were like “oh boy we have a little monster on our hands” ๐Ÿ˜ฌ river would fly on you and start biting. he wasn’t biting to be mean but it still hurt like heck. he was biting because everything was new. it was his way to explore and assert himself. i had to start wearing long sleeved shirts to protect myself. when sprig and winter bonded, he got worse. we thought about bringing in another bird for him but worried no other bird would like him ๐Ÿ‘น his nickname became “the little jerk” ๐Ÿ™ˆ well, along came rain and you guys know the story. love at first sight. river fell hard and his nickname changed to “the sweet little jerk”. river and rain sadly didn’t get to have a long happy life together as rain was born with a compromised immune system. she fought off illness once but succumbed to an infection shortly after. river and i were crushed by her loss. willow joined the flock in hopes of river bonding with her. they had a brief stint but his heart wasn’t in it and sprig’s was. sprig and willow bonded while river and winter were left wondering what just happened. the two struggled with being friends/mates. it was on and off for awhile but finally they’ve settled into a comfortable, loving relationship.
river has always loved me through it all. he is the only one who lets me pet him and he absolutely loves getting kisses. he closes his eyes and waits for them โ˜บ๏ธ we play games. i drop him off at one end of my bed, run to the other side as fast as i can and he comes running across the bed to me. we do this over and over. he loves it. he says the word “gentle” because it’s what i said to him when he would bite. he also mimics me (badly) mimicking bird sounds ๐Ÿ˜† it’s the cutest thing ever. can you tell how much i love this little dino? ahh river, my heart ๐Ÿฆ•♥๏ธ
