Planning ahead............

I paired 10 more groups for the 16 patch quilt.  I have added some that are more turquoise in tone with this batch.
I had a pair of ring neck doves under the feeder yesterday.  I had seen some earlier this spring but they didn't pose for a photo like this pair did.
I have a cardinal pair that visit all the time now.  The Mrs. was over under a different feeder when I got this shot.  In the background is a mourning dove.  It was in the 50s yesterday with light rain a couple times.  I got another hosta dug up and pulled it apart into 3 separate plants.  It was getting too big for its location.  I lost a few hostas last year with the drought so I replaced one of those from this plant.  I wanted to get this done before the rain tonight and tomorrow.

We got through our day with showers off and on. I need to get some more of the hostas divided also. Chris

Like the turquoise tones a lot-may I bid on that block? We have a pair of red finches who have given birth and are feeding their noisy youngsters in a nest they build every year over a light in front of our garage. Have a pic of the nest-haven't caught the birds on film yet.

Gorgeous blue batiks!

I enjoy your bird photos. In my yard I have an abundance of lovely house finches and goldfinches. I love the songs as much as I love the color.

We have a cardinal pair here, too and probably a blue jay pair but have only seen him. Of course we have doves and lots of mockingbirds!

Yesterday my girlfriend brought me a bouquet of flowers that were blooming in her garden, Peony, Colombine, Lilac and Iris all in pinks and purples and the house smells wonderful. Also received a birthday gift of lettuce planted in an old spring form pan with a tag on it saying "Lettuce wish you a Happy Birthday". How clever she is. More rain expected today.
