Under the cut are some pictures I've taken since March of the flowers and birds in my garden. :)
Apple blossom and bee
I went outside one day when the tornado sirens were going off and this was what one part of the sky looked like. The rest was dark and there was a very eerie orange glow on the horizon.
For a couple of days every year in early spring we are invaded by these very charming little birds on their way to northern breeding grounds for the summer. They are usually in flocks, but this is the first time we've ever had them come right in our yard and camp out by the birdbath.
I was in bird heaven - these are probably my most favorite wild birds, and since we only see them very rarely... *squeeee* :D
And the much more commonly seen, baby robins. These were in a nest in my mother's yard.
