Garden Visitors


My garden is showing off. All the blooms bursting open,


teasing with color mixes never before seen around these parts.


Roses boasting with size and abundance.


This morning's sunlight spotlighted a garden visitor.


Tucked tightly into the bottle brush blooms, a home


of twigs and strings and paper. Last year this was the nesting spot of
a mockingbird family. Not yet sure whose home it is this year. This is a
brand new nest of different shape and size, and obviously,
like all good real estate it has
location, location, location.


This visitor showed no fear of me, intent on a cool sip of water.

Going way down for the slurp

Begin the head tilt

Bring it way up, so it trickles back and down
Open for the big swallow
...


HEY! Are you looking at me?

Hi Suzan, it's Monday morning here and I just catched up with your beautiful garden posts and I fell in love with your garden. So many roses blooming in April wow! And isn't it wonderful to have birds nesting? Is ist a blackbird?
Anyway I'll have to leave you, going to work now, wishing you a happy day in your garden!
