Plump Male Ruby Throated Hummingbird

This little guy certainly is packing on the weight for his long migration journey.

Shy Baby skink diving for cover

Our new resident baby skink was too fast for me to get her photo.
I think her tail is a beautiful shade of blue.

Wishing you all a beautiful Wednesday!

Here Lizard Lizard – Turkey – Green Onions – Poplar bloom

IMG_0818Yesterday the skinks were out running around the porch. I managed to get a few photos of them; most were blurs. These two photos are the better of the lot. I reckon someday in the near future there will be a tiny skink or two running at lightning speeds across the porch.IMG_0823

IMG_0730This beautiful Turkey hen has been cruising our garden. We figure she has or will soon have a nest of eggs close by.  We enjoy watching baby turkey’s grow from fuzz-balls to full feathered birds.   I’ll post photos of her new poults if she’ll bring them within my camera range.   (A baby turkey is called a poult.)
I took this photo of her through our back storm door window and screen and that’s why it’s so blurry.

IMG_0942I’m happy to report that we got our 1st harvest of green onions out of the garden. My husband ate a few with supper last night.
I’m happy to be getting our own homegrown green onions finally; they’re one of the most delicious ingredients in bruschetta.
(stay tuned and I’ll post my Bruschetta recipe someday soon.)

IMG_0892The Poplar trees are blooming. I wish I could pick some blooms to enjoy in the house a day or two; our poplars are too tall for that. So as my blogging buddy Dianna says, “so thankful for a zoom lens”.z00m

Wishing you all a great rest of the week!
