Shake Shake Shake your tail feathers!

Today we went to a local wholesale nursery to pick up some plants.
This nursery has a colorful sales staff!
While shopping the plant aisles, we were greeted by a Peacock at every turn.
They are friendly and seem to know a lot about plants.
Like which plants taste good!
Stanzie really wanted to eat them, she had to stay in the truck.
I got to get out for a little visit with some of the baby peacocks.
They were actually following me around. I think they had never seen a dog and liked my peacock blue harness!
Here are some of the speckled young ones.

More pretty inspiration at a local garden center.
It's still too cold here....48 degrees.
 
But, it is fun to look and dream of warmer days ahead!

Wishing you all, a colorful day!
Wyatt

  5. You did what Moma kept talking of doing today. With us. Minus the peacocks. It looks like it was a great (and promising) time. We ended up staying home (and talked Moma into helping us catch up on our blogfriends.)

    We woke up to snow ... it's all melted now. Each time that happens the grass is greener when it shows its blades again, but it's still too chilly to plant. And Moma is having a hard time waiting!!!!

    We'll do you like ... enjoy color in pictures. And imagination. Soon it will be a reality!

    Much love. Many tail wags

  8. I'm surprised the peacocks didn't get upset when you came around. I've never had any luck being around peacocks.

  13. Wyatt your blogs are always so beautiful. I admire your restraint. I would have been barking my brains out at those birds. Love the pictures: especially the one from behind your head

  14. So strange, I have never thought about it but I grew up with wild peacock all around me but never had seen a baby peacock... Strange! They must keep their young away until they feel it's safe... Stranger fact, my neighbor was attacked by a wild peacock and had to have his leg stapled back together... He was an odd guy... Maybe the bird sensed it.

  15. I don't know what I'd do if I got to meet a peacock, but I think it'd be pretty darned exciting! What a day! Mom is still dreaming of being able to plant here, too, but it's going to be mighty brisk this weekend.

  16. Hmm...geese scare me so I don't know how I'd feel about peacocks...
    Anyway--you do need an antler! They are much cleaner than bones and last longer! It's the only thing that lasts more than a few weeks at our house.

  25. Ha haaa… :o) First I thought that they were fake Peacocks. That is a Pawsome outing you had and all the beautiful pictures you shared are soooo cool! Love the color of your harness. I probably would have done the same thing to the “staff” as Stanzie ;o)

    Smooches,
    Neeko :o)
    P.S. Pawsome Thanks for your kind words about my Sis’ passing.

  26. Wow, how lucky for you to get up close and personal with the peacocks. We have never seen one even from a distance. Beautiful flowers - still too cold here too. We had some warm weather but it is back down in the 40s today. Hope we all see sun and warmer temps soon.

  27. We've got only 1 question. Did you get a peacock feather as a souvenier?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, those birdies are SO pretty! But mom says that when they're in the mood to...um...make baby peacocks, they're the loudest screechers you ever heard. She said that once they stayed in a bed and breakfast that had peacocks and they had to go buy earplugs so they could sleep! (Uh, so my mom and dad could sleep...not the peacocks.)

  31. you are one lucky dog to be able to get out there with those peacocks...I would have chased them round and round!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, my - those are some beautiful peacocks and amazing flowers. This will make Mom have the urge to go buy some flowers. But then she'll remember that she's got to plant them and water them and the urge will go away. We'll just come to your place to see some pretty flowers. BTW, LOVE your color. Mom thinks it would make an awesome bracelet, too :)

  33. Those peacocks look fun to follow around! There were lots of pretty ideas in the nursery too. We're hoping it warms up here real soon!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Peacocks are gorgeous! Your pictures make me SO excited for spring. It is hovering around freezing where we are...again...but the stores are starting to set up their garden centres. Spring is just around the corner, I'm sure! Thanks for the lovely pictures!

  35. What a fun place to shop! I've always wanted some peafowl but they would NOT make the neighbors happy. They are very loud and, unlike chickens, they don't like to do indoors at night.

  36. How neat to have a peacock that's an expert at gardening. Mom says we need to have one around here!

    Love ya lots

  39. Wyatt, what a fun day at the garden shop. That peacock is exquisite. What a fun day having little peacocks follow you around. I must say I quite like your collar.

    Will we get to see your Easter eggs?
