I love how the neighbors Forsythia provides a nice bright backdrop. The birds like to sit in that shrub between visits to the bird feeders. After cleaning out the bird house behind the pond with the bees nest in it, no birds have moved in as of yet. This would only be the second year in about 10 years that no Chickadees have nested there. Hopefully a pair will still move in. I have been watching a pair of Spotted Towhees that I think must have a nest somewhere in the yard or right over the fence.
A strange looking tulip bud right behind the pond. Many of the tulips from this bag have had mushy brown flower buds and this flower is looking a bit deformed as well. I've never had this happen and the rest of the tulips in the yard look fine. Very strange.
Just for fun I took a short video of the pond. I tried to zoom in on a little orange goldfish that was nibbling algae. In the background you might be able to hear the Littlest Gardener singing while she was running around.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! May you find lots of new Spring growth in your gardens today!
