So I'm gonna say that Spring has definitely sprung, and Summer is soon to be here. The kind of pleasant temperatures and sunshine that just make you wanna sit on the porch with a good book and a glass of wine. Or romp in the yard with the puppy. Recently my camera captured some of the signs of spring. We have 7 bird feeders and several blocks of suet out at most times, and we see quite a few pretty birds at our feeders. We also have a bird nest out front up under the porch roof. No babies yet.
Last fall we bought and demolished the house next to ours. It was in terrible disrepair from sitting empty for years with a hole in the roof. The owner lived in another state and never came back to take care of it, and so the house went up for sheriff sale. After the demolition, which is fun fun fun to watch I must say, we completed a fairly large landscaping project. Everything is nicely blooming and we feel a nice pride in how our property is looking.

And last, I will show the latest wildlife spotted, and I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS AT ALL.
I went back to put some things into my camper, and there on the rocks that surround our camper pad I spotted this garter snake. I HATE SNAKES!
I am so upset with this snake, and it's as if he knows it, because it took me 6 tries to upload this picture. None of my other wildlife pictures today gave me trouble. Have I mentioned that I HATE SNAKES?!
So I'll be outside this weekend, enjoying NATURE, and MOST of the wildlife it brings my way. How about you?
