Willy Nilly Friday 5 - May 28, 2021

 Happy Friday!
It's been awhile since I've posted for WILLY NILLY FRIDAY FIVE 
so today I'm going to join in.  Although Tom doesn't run the blog hop anymore you can still post photos for it.
1.  May Day flowers - This is just one of the two May Day baskets that I was lucky enough to receive.  This one my sweet hubby gave me.

I've always thought it was fun to see birds sitting on wires.  -  Check out the video below of what one man did with birds sitting on wires.

3.Just a stray kitty that shows up occasionally to eat the cat food we leave out.  This one is very skittish so I took this shot through the window as it was leaving the front porch.

4. Dragon Lily -
Dracunculus vulgaris
My granddaughters boyfriend told me about this plant that grows near where he lives and I waited patiently until it bloomed.  He described what the flowers would look like and I google (stinky purple flowers) and eventually found out what this plant is.  It's Dracunculus Vulgaris - It apparently smells bad and attracts flies, it's also toxic so in handling it you should wear gloves.  I think it's pretty cool looking though.
5. Goosey Lucy - Spotted peaking out front a fence on.

6.  Bonus shot:  Haven't shared much about our newest family member, Darby the dog.  So here is a picture of him and Coleen.

He's going to start some training next Friday and hopefully he will learn some manners.  He's the sweetest dog but needs help learning what is good behavior and what is bad behavior.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.


  1. Lovely flowers. Your hubby did a very good job on that.

    I love what he did with the birds on the wires. That was brilliant.

    Love the cat and the pup is adorable. Yes good manners is a very good thing for a pup to learn.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Ida. ♥

  2. sure brighten up the day!
    ...the kitty looks nice for a stray, there must be a number of people like you feeding it.
    ...the video is new to me, but I've always thought that birds looked like musical notes.
    ...Goosey Lucy is a bit like "Where's Waldo!"
    ...I remember Coleen was a little girl!
    Thanks Ida for stopping by, enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend.

  3. Those are great photos and that bird musical video was fun. Darby is such a cutie!

  4. Your flowers are gorgeous! I love your little stray kitty and the dragon lily is very cool, I like it too. It's nice to see a post from you, and nice to meet Darby too. Is he part a hairless breed? I love his little spotted chest. I hope training goes well. Have a great Memorial Day weekend. :)
