Birds bugs and flowers

It was a chilly 61 degrees here today, but a very good day to be in the garden.

I spotted teeny tiny grapes on my grapevine, they are only the size of a pin head right now, but I have high hopes.

Our little pond was overwhelmed with birds today all wanting a bath, or a drink, or both.


Quite a few flowers are blooming, but I am longing for my roses to wake up, they are my favorite.


This little bee was quite calm as I was taking his photo, he sat very still, it sure made my job easier.


I even spotted a tiny snake taking in the sun, but unfortunately I wasn't fast enough with the camera, maybe next time.

I think that this is my favorite time of the year, the whole garden feels like it's buzzing with activity, it makes for some interesting photo's.

Have a lovely day wherever you are!
