Daily Pics #168.

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are feeling well today and having a good day, whether at work or at home. It’s a beautiful day once again. A robin decided to start singing at 3am, I guess he figured why wait an extra half hour for some daylight to arrive? Loons were flying around laughing at 4:30 when I got up this morning. Everyone was early today, Henry (one of the gulls) was here at 5, and so were the blue jays, crows, Woody the squirrel and both Pocket and Skamper the chipmunks. So everyone got fed and I had my coffee, it was so beautiful on the deck this morning. It was still, no air movement at all. And it was warm, actually felt warmer than it was. The wren was singing joyfully, as were many other birds. The trees and bushes out back here seem to be so alive with birds early in the morning like this.

Then excitement strikes. Not the kind I like, however. I’m always careful going in and out the door, to make sure no one comes in with me. Didn’t work this morning and Pocket came in as I went out. It was one of those hair pulling, jump up and down, trying to figure out what to do in one second. Muffin didn’t see him come in, that was good, but I knew that wouldn’t last. I had to leave the door open, which posed two problems, keeping Muffin inside and keeping other critters outside while I gently herded Pocket back outside. Muffin didn’t know what was going on until I got Pocket out of the bedroom and running for the door. Muffin went into action while I leapt for the door, crashing over a chair, but…success. That was too close. That means more coffee is needed while you check out today’s pics…

In the pic above is a flower called “gill-over-the-ground”, though it goes by a lot of common names such as creeping Charlie and a few others. The flowers are quite pretty, but it can be a bit of a nuisance if a person isn’t careful. It’s a good ground cover, but it can take over lawns quite quickly.

This next pic, above, is the golden corydalis. This variety of corydalis prefers a bit more soil to grow successfully then the other variety we have seen, the pale corydalis. These are the only two varieties we have in this area. The top pic shows some columbine, a common wildflower in our area. I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
