Colorful pairs at the log cabin

I am heading downstate from the log cabin shortly and looking forward to checking up on all of your blogs! I've missed you my friends! It was great weather up until yesterday afternoon and then it started raining. Here's a couple photos I'd like you to take a look at. Which pair do you think is more colorful........

A pair of Wood Ducks.....



Or my mom and her sister? (Notice their matching red hair and pink outfits! HA! HA!)

*My mom is wearing the baseball cap.

P.S. I need to draw my log cabin follower winner tonight since I was out of town this past Thursday! Be sure to check back on Monday! Thank you!!

P.P.S. I've been making mother's day gifts from my nature photographs! Be sure to check them out at my online store. When you click on the link, on the right side bar there is another link that says "Mother's Day". I'll be adding more in the next couple days! :-)

Hmmm...that's a hard one! I think the pair decorating the couch have a little brighter plumage!!

Have a great day, Denise

Betsy from Tennessee said...

By all means, the best pair are the ones in PINK.... How cute... Looks like they enjoyed their time at the log cabin. Your mother looks just like a teen!!!!! Mercy Me!!!! Did she have you when she was 10????? ha ha

The wood ducks are cute but the pair in pink look like they are thoroughly enjoying their time at your log cabin. So I will have to go with Mom her sister!

Glad everyone had a good time.

Ah, could that be a CAROLINA shirt your mom is wearing?

Judy said...

Definitely your Mom and sister. How cute they are all in pink!!

Ginger said...

Cute picture of the gals, but where is the red hair???? I love the wood ducks picture too.
Glad you had a good weekend.

Star said...

Those ducks look very cute, don't they. Now, do I mean the feathered variety or the two pink ones on the couch! Both, I guess.
Love your Blog.
Blessings, Star

Just a little something from Judy said...

Wow! Your mother and her sister look so young.I would vote for the pair in the pink. What fun that you had a visit with them. I am looking forward to seeing your Mother's Day treasures.

Denise - plumage is right, ha,ha!

Suzette - thank you for visiting!

Betsy - My mom is 63! Don't tell her that I told you though! LOL!!

Mom2 - I thought it was crazy that they both chose to wear pink on this day - lol!

NC - why yes it is! She just visited one of her friend in NC last month!

Judy - My mom and aunt even have the same laugh! HA!

Ginger - probably hard to see from the photo, but they both have this crazy dyed dark red hair - hard to describe!

Star - lol! 2 pink birds! :-)

grammy - they ACT like they look! ha,ha!

Busy Bee - you should see them in the morning....

cedar - it was! Too much eating!

Michele - I think I"m going to need sunglasses around my mom and aunt - lol!

Judy - thanks! I think they do look great for their age. My aunt (on the right) is 67 if you can believe it!

It is amazing that you write short stories, Shelley, but I am not at all surprised. Your use of language is lilting and poetic. I have one short story published, if you'd like to read it you can find it here:

I also write books for kids of all ages.

I can't wait to tell my husband about your cabin!

Cam said...

Their photo would be nice for Pink Saturday :)

April said...

You're living the sweet life, Shelley! What I'd give! Your mom and her sister are adorable! Happy Monday!

Jen said...

Looks like your mom and aunt kicked their shoes off and had a good time. (or did you make them take them off?) ha!

John Poole said...

Well, they're both very colorful pairs. Individually, I think I would rank them as follows: 1) Male wood duck; 2) Mom's sister; 3) Mom; 4) Female wood duck. The female wood duck needs a fashion make over to get a little more color in her outfit! :-)

Charli and me said...

Very cute post LOL I vote for the ladies in pink ♥ I hope you are having a happy day :>)

George said...

Your Mom and her sister are definitely the most colorful. I suspect they are also the most fun!

I bet your mom and sister cackle more than the birds do!!
haha
