Birds, Blooms & more

  I am linking up with Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday 


I am sharing some images from my yard and more from our walk at George's Creek.



Some pretty lilies in our yard, blooming waterlily, blueberries and a sunflower..


I love this color, they are beautiful lilies.



My pretty Bluebird, hanging around making sure Momma is safe in the house with the babies.


I am not sure what this flower is called but we saw during our walk along George's Creek.. It is nice to take our walks along this trail and see different wildflowers blooming at different times.


A pretty flower,  a lumberjack at work, more pretties and the turkey feathers..


The juvie Titmouse can be pretty persistent with their..feed me..feed me..




I hope you enjoyed my birds and blooms..Thanks for stopping by and for the comments.

Gorgeous photos, Eileen! I've often wondered what lilies look like with the flowers intact. My deer don't let me see mine-LOL!
Hope you're having a good day. It's going to get HOT here tomorrow, so we have just come in from a long bike ride.
Enjoy the day

Hi Eileen, Great snaps of the flowers. Titmice are darling little birds! Have a wonderful coming week!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Indeed, pretty birds and blooms. My daylilies are finally showing off too and I've seen a couple of juvenile orioles waiting on the deck railing for dad to bring them grape jelly from the feeder. Every time they tried to get it themselves, he made them go back to the railing. :-)

Bi Ti said...

I really enjoyed your beautiful birds and blooms Eileen, thank you for taking us along on your walk and thank you for stopping by pret-a-vivre.com :).

Betsy Adams said...

Loved your Birds and Blooms, Eileen. That dark lily is gorgeous. I've never seen that one before... AND--Love that waterlily. We'll go to Biltmore soon to see their waterlilies which are so pretty this time of year.

Our Bluebirds are on their 2nd family too.. Busy little birds.

Hugs,
Betsy

Beautiful photos of a beautiful walk. It's nice you can fit in your walks with working full time. The unknown flower is such a beautiful color.

Roan said...

Those lilies are gorgeous! Cute titmouse!

Stephanie said...

A very lovely assortment of images!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love those lilies! I will have to look into growing more lilies in my garden next year --the deer son't seem to bother them.

You asked if the ride up Mt. Evans was scary--it wasn't too bad as there are a lot of switchbacks so the ascent and decent are slow--the road does get very narrow at times and there is no guard rail. It is the highest paved road in the US!

Kathie Brown said...

Lots of pretty things to see in the woods! Thanks for taking us along!

Life Images by Jill said...

What a gorgeous, deep shade in your lilies, Eileen! And those wildflowers are very pretty, too. Of course, your winged friends add that extra whimsy to all your photos! Have a lovely week!

Roses, Lace and Brocante said...

I always really enjoy your birds and blooms Eileen and the walks you take us on to see them.
Your birds seem to be much more tame than ours, who hide shyly in the bush... apart from the sparrows of course!

A Quiet Corner said...

We have the same taste in lilies, Eileen and mine are blooming now too! Looks like another great walk!!!...:)JP

Beth of "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...
