I had occasion to visit Victoria again recently, fortunately on a clear sunny day ~ Mt. Baker located in Washington State, USA lent a surreal background to the Oak Bay Marina.
At home, two hummingbirds were noticed at the front feeder, and apparently have both shared the nectar, however I didn't catch a photo. I decided to add another feeder to the back, and hung it from the flowering cherry tree... can you spot the tiny hummingbird?
I love seeing the trees come into blossom ~ just so beautifully delicate.
Out and about, there are other signs of spring ~ being protected by their guardian donkey.
Other birds and beasts ~
A Bald headed Eagle amongst the new spring leaves ~
Also, I had The Goldfinch on order at the library, and it arrived a few days ago with a fourteen day time limit to read the tome of 771 pages...so I got right at it and went on a reading marathon....it has now been returned for the next reader!
We've been having a typical spring of unsettled weather...but it is a lovely time of the year. I have been reading blogs, but not commenting recently ~ my apologies!
I noticed a creature while out and about that reminded me of someone ~
and also after reading that unbelievably busy Snowbird's post today, I couldn't help but include a restful photo using her garden as a backdrop and her words as the incentive (ohh...and her face ;)).
