February Snapshots

Hello! The first seven pictures are from a nature walk to the creek.

The rest of the images are from our backyard.

aloe, cardinal, Cooper's hawk in the rain, echeveria

Sam still likes to visit our yard. The birds don't seem to be bothered by him.


I keep experimenting with growing vegetables.

collard greens

warbler, verdin, hummingbird, vireo

We hung up a new thistle seed sock and the finches found it immediately.

  Have a nice day!

I am always excited when I see a post from you pop up on my blog roll.
And you did not disappoint. Wonderful photos today. Plus a new and exciting header photo.
Have not started my garden yet. I have the smallest protected garden ever. But new this year watermelon radishes and shishito peppers.
I hope !

cheers, parsnip

The walk to the creek, cacti around and birds was great. Around the house are also beautiful flowers and birds. Regards.

I love seeing your desert images - it's snowing hard here! All those finches - it looks like they'll have a feast. The goldfinch is really puffed-up.

It looks like an idyllic walk Diane, love the misty scene.
The finches are amazing when it comes to seeking out the seed feeders aren't they?

Looks like spring has sprung in your world. Although we've had a mild winter, I always look forward to spring.

How beautiful! You have so many interesting things in your photos. I have the thistle socks, but our little verdins have disappeared. Now only finches and sparrows come to them...sigh...
