I don't know what these are.....yet. They were a total surprise.
It's going to be a learning curve, discovering new to me plants.
I think the previous owner told us this was a plum....but, I don't know for sure.
Forsythia, that...I am sure.
Look, I finally got a bird photo.
These Robins are eating good....we have worms!
An this sweet little Wren, perched himself right on top of the patio table.
Remember that I left birdfeeders full, at home, before I left for the lake? Well, I got back home yesterday and the little orange feeders were empty. I nearly leaped for joy. And then it wasn't too long that I started getting little visitors.
They came for supper, and this morning, they came for breakfast. Again, there will be a learning curve here. I need to learn what kind of birds are visiting....I know a few. I need to learn what kind of food they like. And, I need to learn how to photo them. For now, here's what I have.....
I'm not sure about this one. It has eye markings like a Wren,
but the breast color is throwing me off.
His tail feathers...he's so cute!
Look at those markings!
Uh oh, I've been spotted.
He cautiously continues feeding while keeping an eye on me.
And they came, two by two.
Maybe someone out there can tell me what they are. There was another bird that I couldn't get a photo of...he was just too quick. That particular bird is very small with a grayish, bluish head. I'm wondering if it's a finch. There are multitudes of them. Maybe I can capture a shot of one tomorrow.
I'm thinking you should prepare yourself for an onslaught of bird photos. I'll try to constrain myself, but I'm not making any promises. Ha!
Take care.....talk soon,
P.S. - Sunday, Lidia and Sawyer went swimming for the first time this year....in their wetsuits. I could hear Sawyer screaming all the way up to the house. He went under. Ha! As cold as the water was, they played in the lake for a couple of hours. The wetsuits, obviously, works or they would have bolted out of the water the minute Sawyer went under. He certainly worked up an appetite. This child, the one who normally eats about as much as the birds above, ate his dinner like it was going out of style.
