We have had some sunny weather lately so I've been able to get out and enjoy the flowers and birds.
These are some of my favorite tulips. They are almost black.
I startled this Mourning Dove off the ground and into the tree. Picture Perfect.
'Snowdrift' Crabapple has pink buds and opens to white blossoms. When the petals fall it looks like its snowing.
Male Mallards are around every day. Sometimes up to five. Occasionally there is a male and female.
I wanted to photograph my crochet project in front of the flowers, but I guess someone else wanted in on the photo too.
I don't have great numbers of birds lately, but I do have good variety.
Yellow-rumped Warblers are around frequently. And yesterday evening a White-crowned Sparrow showed up.
Chickadees are abundant. This guys sings every evening in the tree. I hope he finds a nice female chickadee. My garden needs more chickadees. It seems they have started a nest in one house. It has a grey and black fur filled nest. Looks like my old pup, Nina's fur.
Chestnut-backed Chickadees are still around, but they don't seems to be nesting in my yard.
The stink eye...
