orange mystery plant
I've never grown peanuts before, so I fell for this cute peanut guy sign. Should be fun to see how they do.

Nice Day For A Walk

The top picture is of the female oriole using the nesting material I put out. Last year the goldfinches used this material all the time for their nests. I bought it at Wild Birds Unlimited. The next is of one of the ducks who comes into my yard to eat bird food. The third is a dove. I'm not a huge dove lover, but I thought the close up was kind of cool. The last is my herb barrel. The chives come back every year and then I add various herbs to it.

Columbines, Apple Blossoms, Alliums and Lilacs
Our 3 small apple trees have alot more blossoms this year. I hope this means we will have alot of apples. My son counted over 40 blossoms.
Last year was the first year I planted Alliums and I loved them. In the fall I remembered my post from May 19th and planted tons. http://thehummingbirdgarden.blogspot.com/2007_05_01_archive.html
They are just starting to bloom now, so more pictures will follow shortly. Things are blooming a week or so later this year due to how cold it has been.
I also got the first lilac picture today. Lilacs do great here in Wisconsin. I love lilac season.
