I am linking up my post with Mosaic Monday and That's My World. These are some of the flowers blooming in my yard right now and a couple of my yardbirds...the Mourning Dove and the Ruby Throated Hummingbird. Most of our flowers were planted with the hopes of attracting more wildlife like the birds and butterflies to our yard.
Below, butterfly bushes, crepe myrtle, trumpet vine and a Ruby Throated Hummingbird.
The Mourning Dove is another year round bird and a regular visitor to my yard. They spook easily and sometimes it is hard to get a good photo of them.
Below, Purple coneflowers and Maryland's state flower the Black Eyed Susan and my sweet looking Mourning Dove.
Black Eyed Susan's, Maryland State flower.
Over the years hubby has planted many flowers, he has the green thumb and I just help to choose plants and bushes with the wildlife in mind. The butterfly bushes attract the butterflies and the trumpet vine is a favorite of the hummingbirds.
I just love to see the hummingbirds in my yard, this male like to take control of all my feeders and the flowers.
