Sunny Flipper: Best of the Week

On weekdays Flipper and Sunny have a regular morning routine.
Get up and have breakfast.
Once they are done eating it’s play time; then we go for a short walk.
When we come back, they go to their day cage by the window and I go to work.

Fern Trimming
This day our morning routine is interrupted.  The phone is ringing.
It’s a client calling so I need to take it.
I’ve said this before – Sunny gets loud when I’m on the phone.
So I take them into another room, place them on top of the cage and close the door.
(Yes, they have cages and stands all over the house.)
When I’m done with my phone call I go to pick them up.
I open the door … to a freshly decorated room!
My beautiful fern has been “trimmed” – a third of it is on the floor now!
Sunny has an innocent look on his face but I know better.
He is the “gardener”.
It’s not the first time that busy beak of his has done this.
If I could just train him to do some yard work!

Some plants are highly toxic to birds.
Palms and ferns are my favorite house plants for two reasons:
They are beautiful and they are safe for my little “gardeners”.

Catch me if you can
Later in the day I take them out on the porch.
My neighbors’ two kids are in the front yard.
They are playing with their little dog.
It looks like a “Catch me if you can” type of game.
The little dog runs but when he is too far ahead he stops.
He is waiting for either the boy or the girl to catch up with him.
When he decides they are close enough he bolts again.

Joy and Radiance
The dog with his fluffy ears and happily wagging his tail.
The kids running and squealing with delight when they think they got him.

Such a beautiful day!
