Happy Thankful Thursday


Happy Thursday everyone, 


I wanted to share more Spring scenes from around my yard.  The trees are still blooming, the birds are chirping, the bleeding heart is blooming and the azaleas are looking pretty. 

I am thankful for Spring blossoms. 

A look at the dogwood and the redbud trees from side of our yard.


 Images from the deck and around the back yard, side yard and the front.



"My favorite weather is bird chirping weather."

The Tufted Titmouse, Carolina Chickadee and the Pine Warbler love the suet. 


 The male Northern Cardinal loves the sunflower seeds.



 A view of the forest from our deck.


The azaleas are looking pretty. 





 The blueberry bushes  and the bleeding hearts are blooming.  The bees are happy..

I am thankful for the pollinators, the happy bees.



 This is the view out our kitchen window. 



I am thankful hubby and I are staying virus-free. I pray everyone is feeling good, stay safe and calm.


Some of my favorite book finished last week are:
Devonshire Scream by Laura Childs in the Tea Shop Mystery series.
The Mapping of Love and Death by Jacqueline Winspear in the Maisie Dobbs series.
A Lesson in Secrets by Jacqueline Winspear in Maisie Dobbs series.



I am always thankful for your visits and the comments.



Live simple and be happy!  😊 Spread joy & happiness!


Thank you Michelle for hosting Thankful Thursday
Thank you to Yogi the host of   Skywatch Friday

  1. You certainly have a beautiful view.

    I think the redbuds are my favorite. We don't have one in our yard (yet) . . . thinking about purchasing one when the garden centers open up again.

  19. Que linda é a Primavera, vista a partir do seu quintal, Eileen!
    As imagens estão fantásticas! E quantas variedades de pássaros! Adorei ver! Mas fico sempre fascinada, pelo vermelho! Pois por estes lados, não se vêem... nem parecidos!... :-))
    Belíssima partilha!!! Beijinhos! Estimo que todos por aí, se encontrem bem! Por aqui, já se fala em aliviar as medidas restritivas para se circular, e o comércio vai começar a abrir... mas existindo ainda bastantes casos de contágio... temo por uma nova vaga da epidemia... vamos a ver, o que sucede nas próximas semanas!...
    Tudo de bom, por aí! Beijinhos!

  50. Your yard and property are beautiful. So nice to see everything blooming and your bird shots are always a pleasure. I just got back from a walk along the towpath and was rewarded with a view of a Great Blue Heron!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Isn't it just amazing!?! It seems that the trees are blooming longer than they have before, or maybe it's just because I have more time to cherish them. Whatever the reason I have so enjoyed your post and the photos of the cardinals are just wonderful! Thank you and have a grand week! Please visit me at https://abitoftheblarney.wordpress.com.
