Springtime Collage

Spring time has hit here in northern Colorado and so has yard work fever. I love working outside in the yard, most of the time. Once in awhile when I have a heavy physical task I shouldn’t tackle alone and help is not available Right When I Need It. That’s when I must practice patience. Anyhow, to break up the physical work I take a day off now and then to go birding.

Here’s what I found at Pawnee National Grassland on Thursday, Dueling McCown’s Longspurs.A pretty male allowed my jeep quite close.
And now back to the yard. This lovely molting Lazuli Bunting male showed up on this gray, drizzly day today and delighted me with his presence. Will he be back tomorrow?
My Purple Leaf Sand Cherry is blooming.
Pretty tulips. Now, I love native flowers, bushes and other plants, but I also enjoy non-invasive species from other areas.
A quick view of my garden area. The beds on the left are all planted, the new beds on the right, mostly so. Lettuce, spinach, carrots, onions, leeks, brocolli, tomatoes in the wall-o-waters and some early herbs.
I have a little meadow with native flowers and grasses. I can see the little plantlets coming up!
Spring!
