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

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.
