I heard lots of other birds today, but did not see them. I saw a squirrel run full speed up the street and disappear before I could lift my camera. I took some photos of new spring growth instead.
I'm pretty sure this is nigella, love in a mist. I hope more than this mass comes up. This will probably need to be thinned.
Here is some crocus coming up on the south side of the house.
This hellebore is showing some pink. I am so excited that several of the plants I put in last spring and summer are getting ready to bloom!
Some are looking a bit ragged, but hopefully the new growth will not get snowed on.
This hellebore on the east side of the house is 'Silver Lace'. It has a couple buds on it.
It felt wonderful to be out in the 57 degrees day. Heidi was happy I finally let her out in the front yard today. KJ, our grandson was delighted, too. (The two new header photos were taken today.)
It seemed weird for KJ to be playing in the snow without a coat on. I hope that snow melts soon.
It's sometimes hard to get an action shot of Heidi. I like this one.
And now, for the main Camera Critter photos, which really didn't turn out so well. Tuesday evening, at Heidi's last time out before bed, she was barking furiously. I opened the door, and she was trying to get over the herb garden fence, which shows in the photo. I looked up, and there was an opossum on the fence on the carport side. It was touch and go, but I got Heidi in, then came out with my camera to take some photos of the critter.
You can see, it wasn't so relaxed or happy. Today, I visited with a neighbor for a few minutes, and when I mentioned the opossum, she said another neighbor had seen a dead one on the street Wednesday. I wondered if it was this one.
