Yellow Flowers

I love yellow flowers. I especially like them paired with
purple, but today I'm focusing on the yellow ones.
How could you not find a little cheer in yellow flowers?
They're bright and sunny and add wonderful
color to the landscape. Here are some pictures
of yellow flowers from my own yard.

I debated whether or not to use this photo as
it's a bit too orange to really be considered
yellow, but I liked the flower and the photo.
It's slightly out-of-focus and I loved
the dreamy water-color like effect
that had on the photo.
Art really is subjective, isn't it?

I love using "found" objects in my garden.
These flowers are in an old pail. I'll
show some more of the unique "found" objects
in another series of pictures one of these days.

Tiny Surprises

My husband and I were checking on flowers for a neighbor who 
was on vacation when we found 3 tiny and adorable surprises.

She has a tiny tree in a pot near her garage. The tree can't
be more than 3 feet high, at most.

Feel the eyes watching you?

Nestled in a tiny nest in that tiny tree were three baby wrens,
stacked on top of each other like pancakes.
 I love the look on the bottom wren's face.
I think he wants his siblings
to give him some breathing space.

Aren't they adorable? 
They are so tiny and can't be very old.
Momma Wren was nearby,
chirping and watching us
closely. I quickly got my pictures
and then left Momma and babies alone.
I love finding tiny surprises like this.
Thanks God.

Our Baby Robins

We had a momma robin build her nest on the eve spout of our
house. We got a great view of the babies and momma
from our back porch and deck.

One of the babies testing his wings.

Waiting for lunch.


Momma arrives with that tasty worm.


Momma rests with her babies.

This is the first robin who flew out of the nest.

He didn't seem quite sure what he should do with himself
now that he was out of the nest.
The 3 babies are still hanging out near the nest in our
backyard, getting bigger and stronger every day.
