Hi Louise , love your 'Winged' visitor and some buddies , spring is here and time to do some gardening . Your plant is green with a bloom and ready for spring , just lovely . Are you ready to put your seeds in the ground ??? I put my herbs outside and they took to the spring weather nicely . I see my peppers is peeking though the ground . Now for the large patch of ground , if only I can find hubby where he's hiding ;-D . Thanks so much for sharing ... Nee :) .

I must admit, Mae, Starlings are not my favorite birds. They tend to chase the others away but when the opportunity landed right in front of me, I just had to snap!

Hi Dottie,
I know the calendar says it is Spring but, it's still a little iffy:) One thing is for sure though, the snow is finally gone from my back yard, lol...

Hi Louise,
Lovely photos! And is that your lime plant? It is doing really well, already flowering! My plant as turn "baldy",most of the leaves are eaten up by the larvaes of the butterflies. And boy, can they really eat!! I'm keeping a close watch now!
Have a great weekend, Louise! Say hi to Marion!

Anne Regalado said...

Louise , bye snow , see you next year ?! :D I think more birds will visit your garden now that the weather is fine and dandy . Is that a citrus plant , an orange , perhaps ?! 'tis pretty !

Thanks Pam...

Thanks Nellie...

~~louise~~ said...

Hawk yes! Starlings, yes, yes...Sunshine? Well, not today Marjie but we're working on it:)

~~louise~~ said...

HI Nee,
You are so funny and very lucky to be able to put your herbs outside. It is still very cold at night here not a good thing for herbs or any new plants for that matter. However, I did plant some seeds in the garden. Unfortunately, those pea seeds I planted a while back still haven't emerged though. What are you planting, or what is hubby planting in that "patch of ground?" Thanks for visiting, Nee...

~~louise~~ said...

Thanks Candy...

Thanks, Joyce. There is a rather funny story about that flowering citrus. I'll be posting about it on Sunday:) Marion says HI back!

~~louise~~ said...

I am patiently waiting for all the birds to return, Anne. Especially the hummingbirds! Yes, that is a citrus plant:)

~~louise~~ said...

Welcome Beth! It's so nice to "see" you. I just popped over to your lovely blog too. Very nice:) Thank you so much for visiting, drop by any time:)

Hi Jennie,

Yes, it is a citrus plant. We're just not sure which one, lol...

Catherine said...

Dear Louise, Beautiful pictures of the nice weather and the garden. What a distinguished looking visitor. I don't think I have ever seen an owl around here.
Take care. Blessings dear. Catherine xo

~~louise~~ said...

Thanks Uru...

~~louise~~ said...

Thank you Catherine. I couldn't believe how he just stood there so majestically so I could take a picture:) I think it may be a Hawk though:) Either way, I have never seen one on Long Island either:)

Cakelaw said...

The little kitties hanging off the pot plant are so cute!

I Wilkerson said...

Your hawk looks most impressive there. Isn't it wonderful that spring is coming!

Geraldine Saucier said...

I just knew I could depend on you for an awesome egg post this week, Louise! And some stories and recipes I've never heard of....Egg Chowder?? A great read altogether. Always have loved decorating eggs. Never was great at it, but always have fun doing it. More fun when grandkids are around though.
Made me think of the old movie Egg and I with Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray. Hope you've seen it!
Happy Easter!!
