May Day gift

A pretty bird in the Dogwood.

Thundershowers are moving in. Tornado watch is in effect.
I have lavender to plant.
It has been a beautiful May Day.

Happy May Day, Sherry! I see wonderful birds through your eyes.

Hugs from

Helloo from Alaska! My name is Vikki; and am originally from the southwest. The winters here can last from six to nine months here; but seemingly LONGER. I just want to say that your beautiful photos have truly salvaged my sanity, and gave me hope for spring. Thank you.

They arrived here this afternoon. I hope the worst goes around us. Have a great weekend.

Dear Mary,
It's May! It's May! That lusty month of May.
These ladies are so pretty.
I hope orange birds come soon.
You are doing your part.
Sending orange birds!

Dear Vikki,
Hello! Welcome.
So glad to know the birds and bees here in the Mid-west are giving you hope! Spring will come to you soon.
I am looking forward to visiting you and learning about Alsaka.
I hope you have pictures of the Northern Lights!
Bird songs and butterfly wings,

Dear Mari-Nanci,
The sirens did go off for about thirty minutes last night. A few tornadoes were spotted. I had a little bit of wind damage.
The May pole stood just fine and we had 60 mph winds!
May does mean the start of tornado season.
It was dramatic.

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
I have two Mandevilla vines growing in pots on the deck. The wind torn one of the vines up pretty badly. I am going to try taping it together.
I shall pop over and see how you are doing.
Wicked winds....
During the night I woke to the howling and the thrashing...
Hope you are okay too.

Cheryl said...

Now that Sherry is absolutely beautiful, thank you for sharing this delight.

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
The Dogwood is in full bloom. I was hoping a few birds would come for photos. I was very happy when this Oriole came in.
Was a gift I wanted to share.
Glad you also enjoyed these pictures.

That's a nice gift!
Your visitors are so pretty! You are so lucky to get them :D

Dear Mel,
I am lucky they remember to come to my little backyard every year. A nice group are hear now, about 15 Orioles! In the Dogwood was very nice of this female!
Sherry, who loves the birds of the tropics!
