A Day in the Life of Moi

Hey there is that a squirrel in my birdhouse. First one in six years I better move the bird feeders to the front. I think they are Gail's squirrels and she may be breeding them. I can't complain I think we scared our Moles to her yard with smoke bombs..

The Rhododendrons in our yard are on the verge of exploding like popcorn - can't wait.

The Apple Pear tree is loaded with blossoms ...

... just hope we don't get another severe frost like last year.

The Helleborus is out and looking great...

I like to photograph them a whole bunch.

Even out Lilac is looking great - frost got them also last year.

The Evergreen Clematis is in full bloom and hitting my allergies hard ... but they are worth it.

We took a drive today to a spot where we know Trillium grow wild and in abundance.

I didn't notice the colors in them last year, they were all white.

There is definitely more lavender this year ...

... but still a lot of white.

Lovely flowers.

I like the dead thistles ...

... and the things that grow on trees like ferns and blue fungus.

No Scrabble but we did play night before last
