Red-Bellied Woodpecker on the Suet. This is a male, so beautiful!
And here is our little friend, the squirrel. We have never named her/him? And we really should as she is the only one that is extrememly friendly. She comes when my daughter calls to her and if my daughter is typing in the window, this one climbs the trellis and stares at her until she gets her peanut in the shell treat! You will remember that she took over the birdhouse by chewing the opening until it was large enough to get inside.
She loves getting in here out of the rain and runs right for the shelter of the little house. But this week she was very lazy enjoying the sun and hanging out in the door way becoming so drowsy, she finally laid down with droopy eyes and gave in to sleep-ha!
She has pine straw inside for a nice soft mattress to lie on. Birds still take a peek inside when she is not in there but they do not take up house-keeping. We hope you enjoy our backyard critters as much as we do!
This was taken a few years ago on one of our country road searches for Wisteria Vine. It was in the Spring and this abandoned building was just covered with the beautiful lavender blooms. A painting in the making....
Everywhere we look, there are pink blossoms now! So beautiful!
Our side yard Azalea bushes are spilling over with blooms now as you can see.
I took these last 3 pictures just as the sun went down Thursday evening. This is the back side yard looking towards the lake. It really makes me want to paint seeing the graceful tree trunks and the vivid colors of Spring Greens and Pinks!
Thanks for visiting today and do visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for more Pink Saturday posts.
