We had an impressive visitor in the yard this morning. The shrub is about three and half feet tall so you get an idea of how big this lady is. And then a close up to show the beautiful markings; from the almost bluish tint on the head to the brown/cream at the tail. This neighborhood just continues to amaze me as the lawns get smaller and the non traditional yards get bigger. Granted they aren't exactly the brightest critter bulbs in the neighborhood but what a surprise.
The color scheme right now is brown, white and green with a dash or two of yellow and blue. The daylilies are pushing up-green; spring autumn crocus foliage-green; daffodils-white with yellow centers; Andromeda-white and green; weeds-green.....you get the picture LOL.
Mud. Lots and lots of clingy, heavy, clay based, brown mud. When we plant something we dig really big holes and fill them with compost and other good stuff. One of these days the yard will be in much better shape dirt wise.
Hey, it can't be too bad. The turkey liked it. :-) And I saw a humming bird yesterday. The rest of the week is bonus.
