Tulips by Saturday

Rose-breasted Grosbeaks prefer wet woodlands…luckily. Some say we’ll see the sun Saturday.

The first sighting of a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak. The female is usually described as "drab", but even without flashy colors her feather pattern is too intricate to be decribed as drab.

A Bluejay. Its crown feathers are flattened by the rain.

    So if you,Jon and the kids want a pond in the yard, you know where to put it! It does look good there!

      There’s a small creek that empties into that area so it floods when the snow melts lasts for a few days. The ducks swim out into it (: I planted a baby willow tree out there in hopes those roots would suck up some of the water. We had a neighbor who was a city planner that wanted to excavate the area to make a pond. Would have been perfect!

  2. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers – they are so graceful. :) Hope you get to see them soon!

      It looks promising! And motivation to pull the big dandelion out of the patch before they bloom. (:

      Thanks Donna! She told me she had a wonderful breakfast catching up with you! It hasn’t been “talk across the fence” weather yet has it. (:
