Oh yes very foggy I couldn't see across the road yesterday , so I did a few things in doors for the first half of the morning , then the sun burned off all the fog and Miggs and I went for our walk and enjoyed yet another lovely day out side , I even got my hands dirty from being in my gardens oh it felt soo good . I also did some searching for what plants are what who seeded them selves and whether or not these newbies that I never planted were weeds or not . I am not that good at recognizing flower seedling leaves from weed leaves still working on that lol ! I did how ever find out that the plant in the driveway garden is in fact a weed , must of floated from the field when they cut it .
Looks pretty has a pretty little white flower but in fact they are very evasive and is a weed called Shepherds Purse weed so out it came .
Then I was puttering and yes taking photos but look at what I was finally able to capture after days of them fluttering by non stop . I like to photograph spring things and keep in a photo journal as to when they arrived here each year .
A little Milbert's Tortoiseshell butterfly what a treat to finally photograph this pretty little one enjoying some warmth from the sun and nectar from my Hyacinth's .
Then I heard a buzz buzz and saw this bee oh my aren't you a cute little bumble bee .
Actually not a bumble bee but commonly gets mistaken as one, this is in fact a Carpenter bee the bumbles have a fuzzy larger thorax or back end where these guy’s have like a leathery smaller shiny one .
As I was taking photos of these the birds were making a racket as if to say ..hey lady aim the camera over here !
So that I did .
Mrs Cardinal was happily feasting and swinging .
Red Wing black bird was making a lot of noise whilst eating Dovey looks at him as if to say .. be quiet please !!
Mr Cow Bird and the Mrs !
the female Cow bird is quite plain looking .
Everyone was enjoying the sunshine and warm temps .
I read on one of my Ontario migration sites that the hummers have already returned in the southeastern part of the province so I figured why not put my nectar feeders up what could it hurt .
Then this little fellow sat on it and enjoyed the sweetness the House Finch love the nectar to .
Hey little dude save some for the others .
The Gold finch were flapping about in droves as they fight for the same spot , hey guys there is enough space for you all to share .
Hey Bill what's with them guys , don't know Sid all they have to do is eat upside down it tastes better this way .
All you small birds are nuts !
I’m confused what's all the fuss .
Just peck from the ground plenty of space and seed here with the Mrs !
Ya and a break from eating worms and bugs to , this is a delicacy .
Mum why are all the birds talking , I didn't know they could and we understand them .
Its ok Miggs this is what country bumpkins do for good entertainment lol country bumpkins are weird mum ! yeah well !
Then Papa came home from work !
Then well that was it for the day supper was to be had and a relaxing evening with our little family .
A bit chillier today and cloudy. Papa is just about to trim the tops of the Cedar hedges with his dad helping . I better get out there and see if I can help at all to .
Until next time .
