Flower Buds

This is a flower bud from one of my big hostas that will be blooming in the next several days. I just thought it was so beautiful. You just have to "stop and smell the roses" to see all of nature's beauty. Hope you are enjoying your day!

Bluebirds Nesting!

We have bluebirds nesting in one of our bird houses! Finally...we have been trying to get them to nest for years. We usually see them in the spring but they go elsewhere to nest. She is still on the nest, but I was able to get a couple of pictures of the male today. We have an old dead tree stump. I saw in a magazine that if you don't pull it out, just decorate it. So I did! Here he is coming out of a hole in the trunk. They are so pretty (oh...I mean handsome)!

Here is a shot of the entire tree trunk. The vines and flowers should start to trail down soon. And yes that is the "backside" of the bluebird just below the plants!!

And here he is standing guard over the house.
