This has been an interesting week. We have had warm weather and we have had really cool windy days. March is such a fickle month.
My daughter and granddaughter came to visit. We roasted hot dogs on the fire I had built. The little one picked up pine cones for Grandma and enjoyed catching bugs. It is so cool to see the world through the eyes of a child. She is a budding photographer and loves the digital camera I gave her last Christmas.
I have many perennials coming up but the Sweet Violets are trying to take over my flower beds. My granddaughter loved them and called this "Her Garden". :)
Last week this handsome fellow paid me a visit. I was answering an email and all of a sudden he was right outside my window. Luckily the songbirds had already vanished into the woods. I really hate to a Hawk take out a songbird....but you have to admire them. This is the Sharp-Shin...that didn't get a meal.
Finally....A pair of Carolina Chickadees started this nest in one of my nestboxes a couple of days ago. In my opinion they build the prettiest nests of all our songbirds. They use moss and then line the cup with soft material. I will post pictures in the future of their progress. It took 1 day for them to get this far.
Well, that does it for now. Happy Birding and hope your life is Stress Free!
