Spring Flowers ... and Birds

Spring has sprung after a long winter.  I can tell by the flowers popping out everywhere.  While I am looking for a large garden full of fresh spring flowers to photograph, I took advantage of some of the flowers coming up in your yard.  We have a large terraced back yard filled with flowering plants and native grasses.  Of course, this time of year we need to clear up the mess from last year, but that doesn't stop the early blooming flowers from coming through the leaves and brush from last year.  What a beautiful time of the year.

We are also seeing some new birds flock to our feeders.  The two birds below showed up Thursday morning as we were sipping coffee together.  Fortunately the camera was handy as I have not seen these since that one time.  I am sure we will have more sightings in the future.

Enjoy Spring.
