76 degrees and sunny

First really nice day of spring here. A bit windy, but I'll take it. Birds are chirping and things are starting to grow:)

Wow! It's been a long time since I've updated the blog. After several years I seem to have taken fall and winter off. Hoping to update more soon. Spring has arrived a bit earlier than other years:)

I've been busy this summer. Trips to Iceland and Maine and packing kids for various camps. I finally managed to get out in the garden and capture some hummingbird pictures. There were at least 4 flying around and chasing each other today. Lots of fun:)

Honeysuckle and weigelia

I've been really busy with visiting guests, gardening and end of the school year activities. I hope to update the blog a bit more now. While some of my plants are not liking the unusual cool temperatures this summer, my Weigelia and Honeysuckles seem to be thriving. Here are some pictures from today.

She's back

Looks like she is back and hungry as usual. I haven't been posting too much. Too busy planting, end of the school year activities and with visitors who are venturing to Wisconsin to visit which is great!

Female oriole and hummingbird with full beaks

Caught these two females eating today. Grape jelly for the oriole and nectar from the feeder for the hummingbird:)

Rose Breasted Grosbeak is back again

This is one bird that migrates through, but unfortunately doesn't stick around. I spotted two male grosbeaks today at the feeder.

Can you spot the bumble bee?

I took a couple pictures of this bee checking out my new hanging basket. Every year I can't resist buying one of these at Eberts Garden Village. With all the flowers finding the bee is a little like a needle in a hay stack:)

First Hummingbird arrived today

Not the best pictures as I snapped them from inside and through the deck rails, but it does show the first hummingbird of the season:)

A perfect hiding place for a coyote

The coyote has been back hunting in the field near my house. He hides in the weeds and then pounces on little field animals. Now you see him and now you don't.

Mr. and Mrs. Goldfinch

The goldfinches are now in full yellow for the summer. What a change from a couple of weeks ago.

I love how the wind is ruffling her feathers:)

First Oriole of the Season

Always a toss up which arrives here first the Hummingbirds or the Orioles. This is the first of either I've seen in April:)
