Spring brings Orioles back
They come to our jelly
feeders throughout the day.
Spring songs fill the emptyness of winter. Song birds lilt the air, singing to their partner or trying to find a partner.
The colors flash as they fly to the feeders. Sunflower seeds for the Cardnals, Thistle seeds for the now yellowfinches and the blue Indigo Buntings.

The tulip shaped flower containers are now back in place. They await one more week before Wisconsin is free of frost warnings.
We have Moraine Garden Nursery do up our hanging baskets. We bought them there and now they fill the same decorative baskets each spring with flowers to be picked up after after June 1st.
Percilla our black barn cat watching and waiting until I am finnished weeding to get her rub and petting.Some days she has no patience and butts me with her head, meowing a message "Enough, I need that rub now. "
|Our Pecock has his feathers back. He looses them in fall and come spring|
He is like the rest of the birds around here, looking for love. But
his mate died last summer so he is alone for now, until we find
him a partner.
|YellowTulips were stunning this spring. We had many days of warm sun and higher tempetures than normal. I also fertilized all the garden beds giving them the boost they needed.|
Always look for the middle number higher than the other two for flowers on the fertilizer package.
This tulip is a double with the splashers of red on its petals. I love trying out new bulbs. Here in Wisconsin we do not have the right weather to have perennial blooms. There are some hardy ones, but I find many of my old bulbs I planted years ago have disapeared. Also have to deal with deer loving the leaves.

Iris have begun to show up, first are the mini size.
These Iris are mini size, next come the medium size and last is the Tall bearded Iris latter in June.
|I love the peach color in this Iris|
|Columbine demand attention with their lovely figure and shape.|
