Very welcome visitors
We hung up our hummingbird feeder a week or so ago and the birds immediately started coming. Today there were several of them out there- in March! How exciting!
Then a pileated woodpecker showed up right outside our side window two days in a row, between our house and our neighbor's. David saw him first both days and we all hovered around the window watching him. I took a bunch of pictures and was thrilled! The next two days we watched out the window at the same time we'd seen him the other two days but he has't come back. Click on the picture to see a closer view.
A friend gave us these eggs on Easter Sunday. They were beautiful! They came from her chickens this way, too. I kind of thought she was kidding, but did a bit of research and found Easter Egg Chickens. Who knew?? Not this city girl. The eggs are really delicately colored and it seemed almost shameful to crack them open and scramble them.
I do hope you had a wonderful Easter!
