Good morning everyone and Happy Friday to all of you! Well, it’s mainly cloudy this morning but very mild so it’s nice as I sit out here on the deck with my coffee and listening to all the birds singing. My one main squirrel is busy coming by to get peanuts. He is getting more friendly but still has a ways to go. Guess I’m not sitting out here enough lately. Sir George and 2 others are here for their breakfast, one tried to chase Sir George off the feeder but it didn’t work this time. Must have been the same one that did it before. The other regulars are not that crazy.
Rickie, the ring-billed gull was here too. The other herring gulls won’t let him on the feeder with them, except Sir George, he doesn’t mind. It’s funny to see Rickie and Sir George together, such a size difference between the two. So little Rickie sits next to Sir George and really puts that food away fast. Between the two of them there is nothing left for the other gulls. So I decide to bring some more out for them too. The crows keep trying to get on there as well, but that doesn’t work. I’m sure Rickie has watched the herring gulls chase the crows. At the beginning the crows would chase Rickie since they are about the same size. Now Rickie chases the crows. Good for him.
Now a couple spring flowers to enjoy…
This beautiful little flower is called Scilla, they are about an inch (2.5cm) across.
This one is also called Scilla, but it’s a different variety and hangs downward, the other one faces upward. This one also only has one flower per stalk, the other one has several. But both are my favorite color of blue.
I hope you all have a fantastic Friday, stay safe and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
