Pilated Woodpeckers - mating ritual???

I took these pics about 3 weeks ago & forgot about them.  I was working in the front spreading topsoil when I kept hearing a "scrabbling" noise & looked up in the trees several times but couldn't see anything.
I was on the other side of Popster's car so I finally walked around it & saw these two woodpeckers.
I flew into the house for my's always in the kitchen or sun room.
I was able to get lots of shots as they continued a strange kind of dance around & around the tree.

Then they finally flew across the street to my neighbor's yard.
The whole ritual started over again.

I probably watched them for at least ten or more minutes

I think here they are doing synchronized dancing

It was just totally amazing!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
