Oh how beautiful, to see such gorgeous greenery and birds. All I can see is white and a few little black birds at my feeder.
After being chilled to the bone here, it is great to feel warm and fuzzy inside from your sunshine.
Have a blessed week.

Darla: Your feeders are doing the job and your birds are great photos. I would like to see some growing flowers.

George said...

I'm envious of the flowers you have in bloom. We have most of the same birds you have, but that doesn't make up for the lack of things in bloom!

That is a great thing to be thankful for. Blindness runs in my family. My grandmother who is in our 5 generation photo is blind. She so misses her sight. So I too do not take my sight for granted and too am thankful today for it that I get to see your wonderful photos!

Have a great week Darla,

Robin~♥

Pretty birds. I see you are enjoying your camera. It takes awesome pictures.

Lois said...

My backyard birds have really been going through the seed lately!

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

You all seem to have the most colorful birds ever. We have the cute little chickadees, and the occasional crow. Seagulls....

Nice to see that some of your flowers made it through the frost.

Noelle said...

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Darla your strawberry jar is really filling in. Looks so pretty. I adore your little ceramic mushrooms. So cute.So many pretty birds in your garden now.They must have spread the word on the full feeder LOL!

Meems said...

Darla,
Love that sedum. I need to move mine to a drier place this spring. Great flowers and birdies!

Dar said...

hi Darla, love your blooms and birds...I have a lot of those Chipping Sparrows throughout the winter...they sure have on a pretty lil' red cap. Keep those feeders full and keep the flowers coming.
Bless your week

Grace Peterson said...

Hi Darla~~ If your feathered guests as well as your plantings are a welcome sight for my eyes. I can imagine they are for yours too.

I agree. We use them every waking hour. I'm also extremely thankful for eyes to see.

Skeeter said...

So much going on in your garden this time of year but I reckon to be expected in Florida. We are not far behind here. We have the Pine Warbler at our feeders during the winter months. Until this year, only one showed up but this year he has company with more showing up! We have Dove in our yard but unfortunately, they are the Hawk’s favorite meal...

I am grateful for my bird feeders as they bring me lots of wonderful feathered friends...

Gail said...

I need to visit Florida and soon...Your garden looks wonderful sigh! gail

Prospero said...

Hi Darla. You have some nice plants here. I love Lobelia (do you give yours plenty water?), sedums are also one of my favorites, and I had some blue fescue (but it didn't like the heat here - what a shame).

Dirty Girl Gardening said...

love the strawberry planter!

My Mother's Garden said...

Hi Darla~
So many pretty sights in your garde. I just love the lobelia flowers. They remind me of being a little girl in my mother's garden. Those shroomies are cute too!

Dani said...

I need to get my butt outside and fill up the bird feeders! Love your little birdies.

Andrea said...

I've viewed all posts in the home page and i love all your flowers, birds and butterflies. YOu have a lot of blackbirds though, are they not giving headaches?
