First Bloom of 2016
The Spring Snowflake
It was cold and windy. Old Glory blew all weekend.
Lidia and Sawyer spent the weekend with us. Lidia is strong and healthy.
Sawyer has been sick...he is being treated for pneumonia. He played outdoors,
but would stop and rest ever so often.
There were plenty of birds staying for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
She is a first for me.....female Eastern Towhee
I had a left over white pumpkin from Thanksgiving. It sure lasted a long time and I thought the birds might enjoy it. The seeds were a little big, but I thought they might find the fleshy pulp tasty. Apparently not! That or the birds were scared of big white chunks laying up in their feeder. They finally started coming around, but didn't eat a bite of the pumpkin.
A male Cardinal and a male Eastern Towhee, which is another first for me.
Lidia turns 12, tomorrow. We celebrated her birthday last night at Saskatoon's in Greenville. It is a wild and exotic game restaurant. Some ate Kangaroo, some ate Buffalo, Elk, Alligator and Venison. The birthday girl ate Emu.......I ate Salmon.
It's been in the thirties all day and we've been having snow flurries, since lunchtime.
The flurries picked up some this afternoon, but I'm sure there won't be any accumulation. None-the-less, I was a happy girl to see flying snowflakes.
