I checked the nestbox this afternoon. I lightly tapped on the nestbox and Mama Chickadee flew out and scared me.:) She sat in the nearby Serviceberry tree and voiced her displeasure. I quickly opened the box. I had set my camera on "auto" and "Macro", then positioned my camera over the nest and took a couple of pictures. With such a small space I couldn't focus or see the eggs. I am dog gone pleased with this picture of the 6 eggs!
The weather was quite nice today with temps in the low 70s. I planted some annuals....Marigolds, Impatiens, and Salvias. The hard part is pinching off the blooms and buds so they will work on their roots getting settled into the new home. I usually wait a day before removing the blooms so I can sit and enjoy them a few hours. I also planted a Pineapple Sage which blooms in late summer and the Hummers really love it! I also planted some Parsley for the Monarch Butterflies. Parsley is a biannual so needs to be replaced every 2 years.
After all this work....(did I mention that I weeded also?)...I sat and watched the birds. I didn't even bother trying to get any pictures. Sometimes you must just sit and enjoy the action.
Wishing All a Stress-Free Life!
