Birds and Blooms

22 May

Walking in the pasture, I get to see lots of birds.

The barn swallows are back!

I have one surviving bluebell in my yard!

I am surprised at how many of the kingbirds I’ve seen.

My lilacs are blooming.

I also have just a few lily-of-the-valleys.  I thought my old dog (Stella) had destroyed all of my flowers.

The robin is still on her nest,but it’s getting harder to see her as the leaves come on the oak tree.

The wild plum trees in pasture had pretty blooms. They weren’t tinged by frost like the tree in my yard.

This is a funny bird, but I do like the squirrels too.

I think I must have been near the wren’s nest because she was not happy with me.

I do enjoy seeing them all.

The Look of Spring

26 Apr

I just love this time of year with nature coming back to life after the long winter.

The birds are singing.

The butterflies are starting to show up.

It makes me wish I actually had flowers in my yard, but, you  know, goats…dog…

I have to be satisfied with the few blooms I can find.

And of course, it wouldn’t be spring without kids.

This really is my favorite time of year.

I Miss My Bird Feeders

12 Feb

I really do miss feeding the birds and seeing all the different ones I can attract.  That would be Sky’s fault since he thinks feeders are really just bait for him to catch the birds.

They’ll have to just live out in the barn.

Maybe some day the dog will grow up and I can have my feeders in the yard again.  Yeah, right…
