Little Visitor

I went out this afternoon to specifically get a few shots of our first Gladiola of the year.  While doing the this Chickadee came over to see what I was up to!  They are very curious about anything that goes on in the garden.


Hummer & Lucifer Two

Here’s another shot of the Hummer and the Lucifer.  I am completely enamoured with both the bird and the flower.

Great Backdrop

A House Finch hen on one of our feeders.  I thought his was a great backdrop.  The bird feeder was there before the flower, which is a Rose of Sharon.


Spring’s Bounty

Honeysuckle


The Honeysuckle has the oddest flowers. They are very aromatic. The water drops from a recent rain, really gather on the leaves.
