Backyard Feather Music

The hills trees are alive
with the sounds of birdies ....

Indigo Bunting - so excited about this one.

I am loving my back yard these days!

Flocks of finches

Red Breasted Grossbeak

The elusive Oriole sits on top of the old apple tree
and sings like a Robin who's had voice lessons - so beautiful!
I just can't seem to get a picture of him .... maybe tomorrow.
The hummingbirds are swarming the feeder - it's wonderful.

The rhubarb is growing by leaps and bounds and I can't wait to make Lovella's "Roasted Rhubarb Scones" this weekend!

Loving Spring and all it offers! So thankful ....

Till next time - looking forward to some more birdwatching in a few short days at MacGregor Point with dear friends ...


  1. What a delightful and varied assortment of feathered friends you have at your place! May you continue to enjoy the many blessings of springtime!

  2. Love your new header Rosella! Things are Springing up at your place. Wow that's some healthy looking rhubarb! Enjoy your baking!

  3. Beautiful header! Yes, those scones have been on my mind, too. My rhubarb is not wuite ready so I'll be able to peek over your shoulder to see how it goes.

    1.'s not quite ready either...

  4. Beautiful! Is that a blossoming fruit tree in the first photo? Love the colorful birds you have visiting there! Is that arbor in your yard? That is very cool!

  5. Oh, Rosella, I love the photo in your header! It's beautiful! I can totally relate to enjoying the backyard - the birds' songs are just beautiful! I set up m hummingbird feeders, and within a minute, one came to check it out, but since then, none have come back! I'm hopeful, though. Last year, they didn't come until summer! The red-breasted grossbeak is beautiful! I've never seen one!
