Oh, how I’m ready to visit the nurseries, pull out the cash and plastic, and dig!!!
The chilly, damp weather didn’t keep me inside much.
In the warm sun of last week, I found father and child Eastern Fence Lizards on the front steps. Getting a focus on both was impossible but I’m happy to see them getting out and about.
This perfect little nest convinced me that I MUST get two nesting boxes at my house, real soon. On campus, a Carolina Chickadee is working this nest and I’m excited to see if it produces offspring.
I thought this was a female Grackle. I've been corrected: it's a COWBIRD.
Could this be the same Carolina Wren that flew inside my house last week? Clever little birds, they are. Michael and I, on two different occasions, caught two of them in the garage eating mealworms from an open Rubbermaid container on the work bench. That’s okay with me. They’re sweet, sweet, sweet.
Fresh nectar and Hibiscus are waiting for hummingbirds. They are northwest of us and on the Atlantic coast as far north as New Jersey. I’m getting a little UPSET.
If you are whining about cold weather and waiting impatiently for tee-shirt weather, HERE - HAVE ANOTHER SHOT OF SWALLOWTAIL.
