More Spring

He’s just a blur with a gleaming gorget but we were delighted when our first Ruby-throated Hummingbird finally arrived.

I am happy to say we now have two male hummers sparring over the feeder. There must be females somewhere.

There is always a brown thrasher about. They like to hunt next to the fence row.

Alocasia amazonica ‘Polly’

Brunnera macrophylla ‘Looking Glass’ will be used to add light to more shady areas.

Stormy weather provided a pink peach blossom mulch. The white azalea on the right was transplanted from an overcrowded situation last year. I’ll have to replace the stick on the left. At least I’ll have one substantial azalea while the little ones catch up. Rhododendrons bloom follows soon. Spring is like a fickle lover tempting you with warmth one day, then turning a cold shoulder the next.

  1. Beautiful photos here. I wish I had a brown thrasher or two. Have had them in past years but not this year yet.

    Hi Donna! It is certainly spring in your area! Love that brunnera! And the pink carpet under the tree is lovely.

  4. I saw our first hummer yesterday. He sailed through and I almost didn’t recognize the buzz of his wings. He stopped over by a little red tie on a plant tried to sample then hopped over to the irises. Very fun to watch!

  5. Love that first hummingbird – great picture. And the peach blossom mulch is gorgeous!!!!

  6. You are so right–spring is fickle! Love your photos, as usual.
