A Pleasant Day

It was pleasant in the sun this afternoon.
I wore short sleeves and a hat.

I am excited.
A Tree Sparrow came to my Dogwood.

Editor's note....Lisa let me know that my cute little visitor is the Lincoln's Sparrow not a Tree Sparrow! Thank you Lisa!

I have never had a Tree Sparrow in my backyard!
I do hope I have identified him correctly.
There are so many different Sparrows!
I will need to take Sparrow classes!
A Bumble Bee found the lavender
as did a male Ruby Throated Hummingbird!
I hope to get his picture soon.

The pair of Red-bellied Woodpeckers
come and go to the peanuts.
I have had a most pleasant April day.

Gorgeous photos Sherry. I love the Red-belly peeking out of the dogwood blooms. The bee is great too. All are great photos.

Awesome photos! I especially like the one with the bee. I'm glad you had a nice day. We haven't had many lately, but tomorrow is supposed to get into the 70s. Hopefully the sun will be out after work so I can get some gardening in.

i love seeing your bumble on the lavender bloom...we are having lots of bees already. they are doing their mating dances in the sky. so glad you are having wonderful warm weather. happy spring.
