Daily pics #163.

Good morning everyone! The rain has stopped, the clouds have gone, it’s a beautiful sunny morning once again. Though it is a bit on the chilly side with a temp of 5C (41F). That’s cold even for us, for this time of the year. But so nice to be out on the deck again with my coffee, which I have to drink much faster before it gets cold. It’s so nice to see the sun shining on those green leaves once more. And enjoy listening to the birds singing again. Speaking of singing, Baxter is back looking for more peanuts. The chipmunks came and ran off with the rest of them. Now there is 2 squirrels out here fighting over the peanuts. Well, not really fighting, just chasing each other around while the blue jays and chipmunks run off with the peanuts. That one squirrel looks like a new one, that’s interesting.

Lost one of my squirrels a couple days ago, he drowned in my landlord’s rain barrel. Happens every year. I know the one squirrel out here is Woody and…there they go. I guess Woody won that round, sort of, though he did lose out on the peanuts so I’m not sure if he really won after all. One of those days I guess. He is looking for some peanuts but there is none left so I toss him one. He grabs it and off he goes with 3 crows chasing him. They like to follow and watch where he hides them, then they come down and get it. Though I’m quite surprised how they can be watching so close and many times still can’t find that peanut. Now for some wildflowers…

First of all, a better close up picture of the “pale corydalis”, a beautiful and bright wildflower that grows abundantly on rocky areas.

Then in the pic above is a nice group of “clintonia” flowers. These are abundant wildflowers found in more heavily forested areas. These are the first ones to bloom along the path to the river which I spotted on Monday. The featured image at the top is blueberry flowers. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!

    • Yep, beautiful sunshine, but the high for today will only be 55F. It should be warmer than that at night this time of year. But the sun feels nice anyway.
      Thanks Lydia!

    • He was starting to get real friendly too.πŸ˜• Hope I don’t lose the others. Those rain barrels can be dangerous for these little animals.

  2. At least you have enjoyed your coffee with a little sun. The photos clearly show that the flowers are there, they are blooming without incident. That gives the atmosphere a touch of spring joy.
    Too bad you lost a friend Squirrel. You never know exactly what happens to them when they have those accidents.
    Hopefully the weather remains mild in your home.
    A hug
