Hanging Out At The Back Yard Cafe




Hey what’s for lunch?





I was kinda hoping for some carrot stew





Oops, I think I am on Candid Camera





I don’t know why they make these tables so small





No one told me it was standing room only

But the food is pretty darn good.

Think I will come back for seconds.





I didn’t know they had a Bouncer at this Café.

What do you mean I have to wait?





Hey mom, don’t forget my take-out order





Think I will check out the menu

Seems kinda nuts around here today.

Dear Lord… Thank you for our food,

that you have provided for us,

and Jesse who scares away that mean old puddy cat.

My Watchdog, Jesse


  1. I love your backyard cafe! These should be in a book. Really pretty and funny! You have a great sense of humor. Jesse is an adorable little doggy!
    I had no idea about your mom. Glad she's back home.:)
    Congrats on your grandbaby! I'll have to check out that post. :)
    Have a great Earth Day!

  2. Looks like you had a great relax on your back deck, it is really nice to watch as nature goes on around us once in a while. I was cleaning my small garden yesterday, taking my time and enjoying the sun and birds as well. I to have a backyard cafe it is lots of fun to just sit and watch.

  3. The photos are beautiful. I am so glad your mom is at home now and doing better.

  4. Very enjoyable captures Dianne! I really enjoy the things that can be found as near as the backyard...many of my shots are not far from our house. Delightful post!

  5. Good photos of all those guys in our back yard cafe. They left without paying for the food though. O well. That's okay. They don't make much money. Their presnece pays for their lunch.

  6. Cute customers in your cafe, with even a bouncer! Truly a wonderful place to sit and watch. Wonderful photos. I am happy to hear your mom is home. I pray everything will be alright. Hugs

  7. Hi Dianne,

    Thank you for this - you have made me smile at the end of a somewhat troubled day and a very troubled week.

    Hugs across the pond - Nita.

  8. The action at your back yard cafe is interesting.Glad to hear that Mom is a home.

    Hope your day was blessed.

    1. Thanyou Lisa and I hope your day is Blessed also. L+H's

  10. I loved it...what a great cafe. I have one here too at my home and everyone is eating us out of house and home but that's alright. I don't ever hear such great conversation tho. I just hear fusses fuming and little fights and seed hulls falling.


  11. Love the pictures and the commentary! Mom is still in my prayers.

    1. Thank you Gail for letting me know you are still praying. That means so much to me personally. :)

  12. That was Lovely Dianne , the pictures are beautiful the back garden yes indeed it holds so many stories. I just Loved your and the commentary. Your dear mum is always in my prayers Dianne, hope she is feeling good today.
    Hugs Sheila and Wile-e xx Hope you have an enjoyable week.

  13. Thankyou all so much for your thoughts and prayers. God Bless each and every one
    Love and Care

  14. Beautiful, as always, Dianne. i think I might know a few of those critters.

    I could use some time on sunny deck. We just returned from a week at the beach and an Arctic front rolled in complete with very light flurries!

  15. Loving the captions Dianne!
    I relate to the 7th photo with the birds mouth wide open.
    What great photos you post, I am always so thrilled when I see a new entry.
    Is the first rabbit you posted done in some HD form?
    Crisp, colorful and way cool you are.


    1. Thank you Janie. In answer to your question. The answer is no. It just so happened the lighting and everything was good that day. I was really blessed that day while sitting on my back deck. I haven't seen the rabbit sense that day. I hope he is okay and just hopping along enjoying his life. :)

  16. I too love watching the activities out my back door...winged gifts if you ask me! I love the sweet sounds of the chickadees...

  17. Dianne, I too love your backyard cafe! You obviously have much more wildlife in your backyard than mine.. :-)
    Awesome photography, take care, glad your mom is home.

  18. Such fun photos...and commentary! Happy day to you!

  19. Love these...they are so cool especially the bird that appears to be praying, he is my favorite. Wishing you a great weekend!

  20. I love the baby bird--and especially now that we have bluebird boxes. I feel like their momma too. I am new here--and will check in again.
