I can't help but share more Springtime photos from around our home. It can be a very short season and I like to savor every moment.
The Bridal Wreath Spirea is blooming so lovely this year. I got this little shrub from my Mama years ago from my childhood home. It means the world to me to see it blooming.
The columbine continues to grow beautifully along with its other red companion.
These are the sweetest spring flowers that reseed themselves and enjoy their day in the sun/shade garden.
This female red bellied woodpecker is waiting her turn at the suet. If you can feed the birds, you are in for a treat. They will reward you with their antics and appearances near you.
The male goldfinch has been coming by for breakfast every morning.
We've been quite surprised to see the male pileated woodpecker this late in the season. We usually see them in winter, but he is welcome to chow down at our suet anytime! He really does consume an enormous amount of suet, though.
The Viburnum Snowball shrub is taller this year. It's blooming so lovely this year!
My cousin reminded me that our Grandmother had these on either side of her front steps. Her variety must have been different for I don't think she would have had twelve foot shrubs next to the steps.
Spring is so lovely this year in spite of the terrible storms we have experienced. I am sitting on our patio writing this post and watching a male wren go in and out of a birdhouse on a side table. He has been so attentive to his mate. I dare not disturb this process and hope I will have some baby wrens to photograph! While I was reading about their habits I learned that the male will build up to 12 nests and introduce them to his mate. She will choose the one to her liking. Now, if that isn't amazing, I don't know what is! Happy Springtime!
