The Months go marching one by one...Hurrah...Hurrah


February consisted of more bird watching then gardening....though I would wander through the garden, checking to see if anything new was popping up or blooming.






Cardinal...either a female or immature male. So very striking!





Then we add a little blue to the picture.....Blue Jay that is.





Then a dash of Cedar Waxwing and a sprinkle of Chickadee and Starling
And cute as a bug....or tufted titmouse. Who names these guys?

Now to tie it all together....a downy woodpecker and a red-bellied woodpecker.


The bloomers for the month were the flowering quince and the daffodils (and pansies, but no pictures)
And then happiness abounds when I find my first spring blooms arriving.....


 And then along comes March

First year we get to celebrate Eve's necklace blooms

Thanks to a friend....we have some gorgeous irises

And I love, love, love our red yucca



Snowberry clearwinged hummingbird moth on the now blooming scabiosa



And to top off the end of the month......our very first bee swarm.........

April comes with all it's glory.....and wind.....and flowers.....and pollinators!
Cloudless Sulfur

Common Buckeye

Queen





Red Admiral
The Smoke Tree is in it's puff of glory!




From February.............










To March..........

Into April.........

Just wait till you see what's happening in May! Coming soon!
