The Little Birds

IMG_1936Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas.  Now as  you all know, when they first arrived here at sunny Chez Jasper, they planted some fruit trees in my play lawn. After a few years the trees are starting to bear lots of fruit.  One of the fruit trees producted over 8 kg of plums, so daddy is going to be busy making lots of plum jam today.


However, the existence of all these fruit trees have attracted lots of birds interested in eating the fruit.  Last night, mummy took some photos of eastern rosella birds who were eating some of the dropped fruit on the ground.

IMG_1915IMG_1912IMG_1916Me and Nellie were not interested in the slightest in chasing these little birds.  After all they are not eating our bones or biscuits.  Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.

  1. It’s like magic that you have summer while we have winter…. I can’t imagine to eat fresh plums in february … eat one for me too please :o)

  2. Wow! I’ve never seen wild Rosella’s. They sell em every once in awhile at the pet stores here in the US.

  3. Wow! You two are truly the politest doggies ever, not to chase the beautiful little birdies! I’m afraid some of us American doggies are not so polite! Thanks for posting the birdies picture as we don’t have any eastern rosellas in Texas. Love from Jolie Amie

  4. Happy Valentines to you. Have a super Saturday and we hope some good things come your way.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Wooff! Those are colourful birds.
    We have plums in our garden, but they come ripe in late August. And they don’t attract birds so much as … BEARS! There’s no room for bears in MY garden, let me tell you! I put the run on them in a hurry.
    Then I go down and get to work on all the plums they’ve knocked down. I love plums. You should try them, Jasper. You have to place them between your paws and nibble them carefully, ’cause they have big stones in the middle that will hurt your teeth if you chomp on them unexpectedly. Well worth the effort, though.
    Oh dear. I’m drooling on the bookshop floor just thinking about them…
    What did you find under the shed?
    Tail wags at you,

  6. Oh, the plums look lovely. Molly longs for unfoggy days and sunshine to run in.
    Despite the arctic fronts coming through here every few days, the first blooming spring trees like pears and redbuds are showing color. Even a few dandelions bravely struggling up. Maybe a battle of wills starting..hope the warm weather wins!
    Thanks for the nice warm pix
