I dropped off the plant I bought my friend, and while I was at her farm, she cut me some juicy rhubarb...
I then carried on to buy some grass seed that I had a 50% off coupon - always handy to buy something half price. I hope to invigorate my front lawn.
On the way home, I stopped at a drive through, bought lunch and headed down to a nearby beach to eat it.
The tide was far out and there were a few folks enjoying a walk...or in this case a ride...
Once home, I decided to sit outside in the front to see if any birds landed on the feeders. No such luck, so up again and into the back. I decided to put up the bird feeder and added loose sunflowers. I hope the raccoons don't know it's there. I put up a lounge, and settled myself down with my ereader and camera.
I noticed my first hummingbird of the year, but it was too quick for me! Instead I have added a photoshop brush of a hummingbird to the photo, so it looks like I did take its photo ;)
This sort of looks like a robin, but it doesn't seem to have enough red colouring.
* Edit to add: Female robins are paler in colour, so that probably explains the above two shots!
For comparison, this robin has redder plumage.
Back inside, I noticed the Warbler in the oak tree again. He flitted back and forth to the feeder, but too quickly for me to get a decent shot.
House finches were hopping about; I saw at least three colourful ones which are the males.
Also a Northern Flicker pecked away enjoying ants for dinner!
All this Up and Downing tired me out!
Some of sunniest days and warmer weather are forecast for the next few days and through the weekend. I like when temperatures are forecast to go UP rather than DOWN.
