Bird sex and cocktails

Howdee all,

Our last night in Ohio we were invited for cocktails and dinner at friends Hugh and Judy's home.

Hugh and Judy have a lovely garden and pond.

I thought my Sickstas would enjoy these photos and maybe Craigy might get a few ideas on how to make a waterfall.

lastdaybiggest_175I just thought this looked cool…

Judy said this is part of an old trailer.
