Yesterday in the Garden

I came home yesterday after a very busy week and had a few minutes before I needed to start dinner. So I grabbed my camera and went out to the backyard where I found my new dahlias in bloom – fuchsias – the most… Continue Reading “Yesterday in the Garden”

Afternoon Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds

I must have let the feeders run dry. I saw the hummers land first on one, then the other before flying away. Sorry about that boys. I ran into the house to make the sugar water and cooled it quickly in the freezer. I… Continue Reading “Afternoon Photoshoot with the Hummingbirds”

The Dahlia and the Hummer

I’ve been watching a new dahlia in my garden open up this week. It’s still not fully open – but this little hummer didn’t seem to mind. Sharing with Cee’s Flower of the Day. ~ Susanne

Watching the Hummingbirds with Benji

I heard the birds in the trees overhead and pulled up a chair to watch. Benji joined me on my lap. An Anna’s Hummingbird perched high above – perhaps he watched me too. I moved to the shed to hide from view and Benji… Continue Reading “Watching the Hummingbirds with Benji”

A House Finch Courtship and a Hummingbird Flyby

I stepped outside today and heard the song of a house finch overhead. Truth be known it was not that melodious, he sang like a one-note Ned continuously and persistently. But it was enough to attract a female nearby and she followed him. While… Continue Reading “A House Finch Courtship and a Hummingbird Flyby”

A Night for the Birds

First of all I’m disappointed – I didn’t get to see last night’s lunar eclipse. Not for lack of trying. I did get up a few times looking for the moon but couldn’t quite locate it among the clouds. Oh well. To make up… Continue Reading “A Night for the Birds”

My favorite Little Backyard Birds

I love birds, all kinds of birds, especially those that visit my garden. The little chickadees live in the evergreens surrounding my home and I’m continually charmed as I listen to their call – chicka-dee-dee-dee. I don’t feed them as they seem to be… Continue Reading “My favorite Little Backyard Birds”

Rosy Red Flowers

Outside a light rain is falling and the beautiful white covering we enjoyed the past few days is drip, drip, dripping away and will soon be gone. So I had to reach deep into my archives to find rosy red flowers for this week’s… Continue Reading “Rosy Red Flowers”

The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived

It started with a fury overnight – tiny flakes of ice blown sideways. It’s falling still – larger and softer – more gently but determined – blanketing everything in white. The hummingbirds waited patiently while I brought them fresh nectar; I’d forgotten to bring… Continue Reading “The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived”

Of Camera Woes and Cats and Birds

My favorite camera – the Sony RX10 my husband bought me almost 4 years ago – bit the dust. I can turn it on but after that everything is stuck – none of the controls work. It happened a few days ago when we… Continue Reading “Of Camera Woes and Cats and Birds”
