Around the yard

 I am linking up with   Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday

Just an FYI: A friend on Facebook said she rec'd an email from me using using a yahoo email address and was asking to open a link. First I did not send any emails out the last couple of days and I do not use YAHOO for email. So if anyone should see my name on an email please do not open any links. LINKS are bad to open no matter what, so be careful.


For my post this week, I have some shots of Spring time around my yard and of course I have some of my spring birds. So, I will take you for a walk around my yard.







The Goldfinch looks pretty sitting in the weeping cherry tree.




The dogwood tree is one of my favorites, I love the dogwood blossoms.



I've been seeing a lot more bluejays around the yard.


The bleeding heart plant is one of my favorite spring blooms.


The Chipping Sparrows seemed to have arrived in big numbers, I am seeing a lot of these cuties around the yard. I am looking forward to seeing some of the spring migrating birds around the yard. I hope you enjoyed the walk around the yard.

Thanks for visiting my blog and post. I really appreciate your comment too.
Join in on the fun and for more wonderful photos please visit  Mosaic Monday and more from  Our World Tuesday
 Thanks to our host: Mary our host of Mosaic Monday and to the hosting group of Our World Tuesday: Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia, Sandy and Jennifer.  Thanks also for stopping by to see my post.  I wish everyone a happy week!

  8. I enjoyed the walk greatly. The chipping sparrows are far more beautiful than our sparrows, which have no colours other than brown and grey.

  14. Hello Eileen
    I love the pastel pinks and purples of your spring garden. Great bird photos too. We're lucky to see lots of gold finches in the yard all the time.
    Well, not always - like today when I looked up and saw Momma hawk and 2 smaller ones floating over top of our backyard. She probably told them to troll here on a regular basis for all the tasty lunches on the bird feeders. :-)
