Around the yard Part 3

My favorite time of the week...Yea!! Friday is here. Also time for Green Day and Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin

Today I am posting some more scenes from around my yard.  My backyard birds are always around for some photo opportunities. I took a shot showing that most of the trees across from my driveway are all still green, only a few have some Autumn colors.  On my deck I have some Salvia trying to hold on, the hummingbird just loves this plant and I have a couple of blooms on my hibiscus plant. The purple stems and berries on the Pokeberry bush look pretty while the birds pose for me.

Only a few of the trees have some color. It is still mostly green around my neighborhood.


This Tennessee Warbler seems to like this Maryland backyard. I am sure there is some official date when it is suppose to leave and head south. But, right now I happy that it likes my yard.


This Salvia plant is still trying to hang on, luckily for the hummingbird that was still around my yard.


I love this hibiscus plant, the blooms are a pretty color.



I have lots of the Tufted Titmouse like the shot above in my yard, they are cuties.



Another shot of my Tennessee Warbler enjoying the pokeberries. And I have a lot of pokeberries for the warbler to eat. It blends in well with the color of the yellowish and green leaves.


The Titmouse likes to pick apart the sunflower seed while perched on my Weeping Cherry tree.

I hope you enjoyed going on another walk around my yard and deck.


To see more beautiful photos and cute critters please visit: Green Day  and Camera Critters and I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Thanks to the gracious host Fiona of Green Day, Misty Dawn of Camera Critters and to Anni of I'd Rather-B-birdin.  Thanks for visiting my blog and post. I wish everyone a very safe and happy weekend.

The poke berries have such vibrant color . . . and such a contrast to the soft, beautiful grey of the Titmouse . . .

Phil said...

I can't get over you having such a cracking little bird as a Tenessee Warbler in your yard Eileen - you are so lucky. I like your Tufted Titmouse shots too and it's such a descriptive name for the bird. Have a great weekend's birding.

I always love walking around your yard and it's beautiful in this transition between seasons. The titmouse is another bird we don't have (as far as I know) at either of our usual spots. He's adorable.

Love your backyard. I know I've said that before but it's very green and tree-y which I like. Your Titmouse is another cool bird. We have the Bridled here....such a cool group of birds.

forgetmenot said...

What a busy backyard you have ! Summer is coming to an end but Fall will bring its own beauty (and cooler weather too-yeah). Have a great week. Mickie :)

BlueShell said...

The berries, the flowers, the birds...all magnificent, fantastic.
As you know, (I think you do) I was born in a village in the interior of Portugal. Now I do live and work in a town (little one) not far from the place I was raised. And I JUST LOVE NATURE: Tiny little things that "nobody sees"...or big mountains...all I do love and admire with my eyes and my spirit....

Love you Photos...they are somehow connected to me, to my way of existing...
Thank you for that! xoxo
