Birds and Blooms

Where there are birds there is sure to be poop.








Cute little birds in my trees









Potted Pansies and primroses brighten my day.










forsythia-almost through blooming







daffodils still smiling after being covered with a foot of snow
just one week ago.
















violets-gotta love their sweet little blossoms








woodland hychianths



One of my favorites-Pasque flower

Happy Earth Day!

I am so loving this weather! The past few days the flowers just seem to be popping out like crazy. My trees are full of birds and I never grow tired of hearing their chirping. I must admit though, I own a bird killer. In just three days I have found the remains of two birds in my garage. Petey is a KILLER cat. What's an owner to do? I've even quit filling my feeders because I felt like I was bringing them in for the kill. All I can say is fly birdies fly. I snapped a few photos of what Spring has brought to my Highland home and thought I would share them with you. Hope you enjoy!

TWO BIRDS!
but petey doesn't even have claws.
I swear he just charms them with his bright blue eyes and then snaps them up!
i dont mind if he snacks on the ones that swoop me.

way to go petey, someone has to control the bird population (bird poop). That poop picture was gross.

Jann, I noticed this little flower in your garden on Jann day, and I loved it! I was going to ask you about it then, but I got distracted with all the quilts that were being showed and told about. Does the flower only bloom in the Spring? I love it because it is my favorite color. I am talking about the Pasque flower in case you were wondering which bloom I was talking about.

Peg,
Yes it does only bloom in the Spring. But it srarts real early so I have about a month or so to enjoy it. It's starting to fade away now.

I was driving today with the sun roof open enjoying the nice spring day when a bird pooped on my windshield. I was sooooo glad it landed on the windshield and not on me! I thought of you and had a good laugh.

Shaleace,
Like I said, where there are birds, there is sure to be poop!
