The dandelions are coming up. I know they are weeds to most people, but I was happy to see this one, and I think they are actually good for attracting bees to your yard.
Lots more crocuses are blooming!
By Sunday, my first daffodil was blooming, too! As the week has gone on, more and more have opened. :)
I like pine cones! I was running the lawn mower to pick up old leaves while my hubby ran the blower and raked, and I came across these pine cones. They are from my next door neighbor's tree, but ended up in our yard.
I like yard "art!" For example, this little butterfly hangs on one of my barrels where I plant flowers later in the spring.
I really like this rainbow spinner!
Since our yard has lots of bird feeders to attract songbird and woodpeckers, we also have a bird bath to provide water for them. Sometimes the fresh water attracts a different kind of bird -
Say hello to Mrs Cooper's Hawk. We're not sure if it is the same female hawk that we have seen in our neighborhood the last couple of years, but I think it could be. Last year, we saw the male and female together, then eventually an adult with two babies. After the babies left home, we saw less of the parents, but she seems to be back. It's pretty fascinating to watch them in our yard, but unfortunately the songbirds who are their prey stay away when the hawks are near.
I saw this on Facebook today, and liked it -
