We're finally through with the wintry weather.
Mildred's bluebonnets sprouted in late December and have been growing,
fist laterally then finally vertically.
They're now almost at their peak. Pic1,
Pic2. Here's the two bugs on the
center flower. Pic3.
Our birds are really busy The sunflower feeder is busy all the
Our resident bluebird pair has three nest boxes to choose from in
front, and several more in back.
That is the male.
Yesterday they chose one, not the one in the picture and the male began
bringing food to the female in the box.
We have a resident tree frog this year too. Here he is two days
ago, as the hackberry trees are just leafing out, Pic7.
He was not in sight yesterday but here he is again, same spot today.
This year we have some wild blackberries starting along the fence.Pic9. I think the seeds for
them came from the birds, from a bush about 35 yards away.Pic10.
A few early regular wildflowers are coming out. Pic11, Pic12
Since our resident Carolina Wren built a nest by the pool plumbing, I
got him a special box,
in a shady place near his spot from last year. Pic13
Speaking of the pool, it is looking ready for the summer, just needs
the water to continue warming up. Pic14
