Good morning everyone! Well, it’s a bit cooler today, but not so bad, and it’s going to keep getting better over the next few days. Yesterday I saw my first junco in the morning and that is a nice sign of spring. They are such a cute and friendly little bird and soon there will be a lot of them chattering away out there in the morning, such a delight. I also saw my first starlings yesterday as well. Not a well liked bird which most people consider just another blackbird. But they are really very colorful birds in the spring with their iridescent feathers of blue, green and purple, and bright yellow bill and orange legs. They can be quite comical birds to watch. But, admittedly can be problematic at times. Plus…my first chipmunk showed up in the morning! I think it was Checker since he is the least friendly of the chipmunks and he wouldn’t come up to me. But that will change. It was a beautiful day.
And now for the bright and cheerful flowers…
Yes, I did show a yellow daffodil already, but this one is a different and larger variety, and a darker yellow too. And it just looks so cheerful I just had to share it this morning.
And now back to the peonies and a darker pink variety once again. And these flowers are huge as well. Some peonies have smaller flowers and some are huge. Tomorrow we will have a couple of smaller varieties. Until then, I hope you have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
