Happy Easter Everyone


Hope all of you are having an enjoyable spring.  I've been busy planting flowers and awaiting a shipment of Ranunculus bulbs to plant.  I ordered some 20 pink and 20 white and they came today all the way from The Netherlands so I will be planting them tomorrow in groupings.  In case you are unfamiliar with Ranunculus I found this lovely image via Google to show you what they look like.  If I plant them now they will flower in late May and June (hopefully, if I do everything right).

Aren't they gorgeous!
We purchased some bird feed and have been enjoying the native birds of Florida that visit to feed.  My, I've seen such gorgeous birds.  Try as I might,  it is hard to capture them in photos because as soon as I see them from my kitchen window, grab my camera, open my kitchen back door ever so quietly, aim my camera they have already flown away.  Anyway, husband has done a marvelous job of getting a few snaps of some of them and I might add very good shots!  I've a few to share with you.

Mr. Blue Jay is a regular feeder now and I have just noticed Cardinals and Yellow Finches too.

This lil guy is hard to capture and husband was able to get him from behind.  HAH!  It is a woodpecker!  Such a beautiful bird.
Did you know that Yellow Finches (tiny birds with a bright yellow breast) lose the bright yellow color in the summer? Yep, you wouldn't know what type of bird you were looking at except for a bit of yellow still in-between their wings.

It rained all of last night and all day today and when all is said and done we were to be blessed with  2-4 inches of rain before it stops tonight but tomorrow and Easter Sunday will be glorious and sunny!

I want to wish all of you a very wonderful and happy Easter and if you have kids or grandkids, watch out for the candy that will be calling your name!  Hah.
