As is my usual ritual every morning I looked out all the windows to see what was happening outside. My first check is always on the pond. Many mornings I see that the raccoons have been here by the wet footprints and plants that have been knocked in. I think it was too cold for them today. Many of my plants that looked so good a few days ago are weighted down with frost. I worry that their flower buds will freeze and not bloom this spring.
These bushtits greeted me on our suet feeder this morning. There had been more, but they don't stay on long.
I love the look on the bird on the lefts face, caught with suet on his beak.
This is some geum growing in our back yard.
A purple heuchera, not sure of the variety.
The berries on the Viburnum 'Spring Bouquet'.
While I was kneeling down taking the previous picture, this hummingbird kept coming and landing on the feeder, I tried to get a good shot, but this was the best I could do.
