While here in the east my red poppies are starting to open after being bathed in thewarm, sunny, sun each day. It has been a different experience for these red tulips shown below. It was a snow bathing they received on this weekend past at my brother Roger's place in Airdrie, Alberta.It is safe to say that I prefer living in the East. Great picture Roger. Lets hope you don't have the opportunity to take many more like it. (ie: snow!)

This beautifual green background serves as home to many of nature's fascinating creatures. in this case a tiny Ruby-throated Hummingbird seen here at its favourite perch in our bird feeding area ,which we have named Bird Alley. Our bird visitors are down this year in numbers and variety. It is so important to keep the world green for their survival and existence. A Happy Thursday to all enjoying our great green outdoors today.

This female Ruby-throated Hummingbird came and perched in front of my window as I was having my morning coffee. It stayed, and stayed and stayed. Also while there a male hummingbirdwith its red throat came to feed from one of the feeders there. and a beautiful gentle looking Gray Catbird stopped by for a visit. I didn't get a picture of the gray Catbird but it will probably be back. We have a large amount of wild Rose bushes that Catbirds favour and one year a pair nested there. We could hear their" meows" all that summer in our garden as the catbirds perched on our fence daily I hope each year that we will have a nesting pair again. And speaking of nesting pairs we have a pair of Cliff swallows directly across the street from our placeThis picture below of them both in the nest side by side
was taken yesterday morning. Today my goal is to get a picture of a Spotted Sandpiper which I saw by the river on Friday. I haven't seen them there since, maybe this mornning.. Now I'm off to find the Sandpipers and who knows what else?

Another ornamental tree is our flowering crabapple. We have three of these, one of which is a weeping variety. They are just coming into blossom now and their beauty is unparalleled in our backyard..
