Birds and the Bees and the Flowers and the Trees

You’ll be seeing more of my backyard during these stay at home orders;  and fortunately there’s always something new with the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees! I’m especially thankful for the hummingbirds that call my garden home. I love…

Lifted Spirits in the Garden

During this time of ‘staying at home’ I’m thankful I can retreat to my backyard and enjoy the beauty of nature. And I’m not alone. I caught this little hummer perched high above in the fir tree, looking fresh and fluffy. And I found…

Welcome to my Garden!

Good morning!  And to all of you who are housebound, welcome to my garden! That includes you hummingbirds – you are welcome to stop by for a bath anytime! 🙂   ~ Susanne

The Changing Color of the Anna’s Hummingbird

I replenished the feeders yesterday so the nectar was fresh and plentiful during this week of snowy weather. I watched the first hummingbird hover nearby – apparently for a good look at me –  before swooping in dressed in camouflage of green and black. …

Color and Surprise in the Fall Garden

I wandered in the garden and found color in the lavender – and a rose – and in a flock of visitors dressed in brilliant yellow! Townsend’s Warblers – what a treat! “Thank you for dropping by!  Please come again!” ~ Susanne

Doo doo doo looking out my back door

This was the view looking out my back door just a few years ago. Twenty-two acres known as the Tiffany Park Woods were behind us. Lovely, dark and deep, they were home to deer and other small critters and full of birds that sang…

Day 10 is for the Birds!

WordPress notified me yesterday that I was on a 9 day blogging streak.  I don’t normally pay much attention to their notices but since this was my longest string to date I thought I’d make it a perfect 10 with a post for the…
