Good morning everyone! It is such a beautiful morning, Sir George was out here before 5 calling for his food, guess I was a little slow getting it out today. That bird can eat! It was nice to be out there and watching the sunrise. Well, I can’t actually see the beginning part except for watching the sun touching the tops of the trees starting about 5:12 and that is such a beautiful thing to see. Sir Henry came next after I had come back inside for a few minutes and he was sitting on the railing of the deck waiting for me. That’s where he sits when I have the door open, that way he can look in the door and call for me with his “yep, yep, yep”. After he was done then Lady Pearl came for her breakfast. So I was kept busy going back and forth. I’m trying to make sure there isn’t much left for the crows so that hopefully the number of crows will shrink a bit, and it seems to be working. There was 17 crows, that’s now down to 7, which is still too many though, they are scaring all my smaller birds away.
But it is so beautiful sitting out here with my coffee once again, listening to all the birds singing. That song sparrow and wren are really singing a lot this morning. The robin was singing earlier but guess he is out looking for breakfast now. The thrushes are singing non stop, I just love listening to those birds. There are some bird songs that really shout “summer” and theirs is one of them. One bird I’m missing this year is the mourning dove, there has been a pair nesting close by each summer, but not this year. Theirs is another of those “summer” songs. Now for some pics to enjoy, the top pic is the “orange hawkweed”, a very bright and cheery wildflower, they are kind of like an orange dandelion.
In the above pic is the orange “Iceland poppy”, another very bright and beautiful flower. These Iceland poppies will bloom for weeks and make a nice addition to any garden.
In the above pic is the “Oriental poppy”, a very large and bright flower. Well, thank you for joining me again this morning. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
