Good morning everyone! I hope you all are having an enjoyable Thursday! It is a nice sunny morning here again so I’m enjoying my coffee on the deck this morning. The leaves have really come out nicely now so it is hard to see through all the trees and bushes out back. This gives all the little birds fantastic shelter where they can hide away quite peacefully, as well as being able to sing heartily without being seen by anyone. Of course it also makes it harder for someone like me to get pictures of these little birds now unless they decide to come out in the open which doesn’t happen very often. However, I can still hear their beautiful songs loud and clear and that is such a nice way to begin each morning.
The flowers on the apple tree are blooming so nicely right now, as are the flowers on the neighbors cherry tree. Plus there are more wildflowers beginning to bloom which I noticed yesterday as I walked down to the river. It was such a pleasant day, though the wind was rather strong, but it was a very warm wind which was very nice indeed. But now with the leaves out fully and the strong wind, it was hard to see very far through the trees and difficult to hear anything but the wind. So it’s necessary at times like that to be especially watchful around me as I walked. And someone took my nice swinging bench, but did replace it with a smaller bench so I still have a place to sit. But it’s certainly not as comfortable as the other one. Oh well, minor detail.
And now for today’s pics for your enjoyment…
In the above pic is a nice red petunia from my little container garden on my deck.
And in the above pic is a male goldfinch in his nice summer colors sitting in the apple tree just 2 days ago before the flowers opened. Well, there it is for today everyone, I hope you all have a fabulous day and God bless!
