Early yesterday morning I went out into the garden and surprised a black squirrel, a robin and a chickadee going about their business.
We have 2 chickadee families living in our refurbished chickadee townhomes (the two birdhouses hanging off the tool shed). Hopefully they will start patronizing the newly stocked supermarket (the birdfeeder). The pool (the birdbath) is not yet open for business, but hopefully will be cleaned and ready in time for the summer.
The pansy bed is a riot of purple and the rose bushes and the jasmine vine are bursting with shoots.
Spring is here at last!
