I am hearing signs of spring in my Georgia Garden! Click on the video and you too can hear this wonderful sound.
Robins were once a sure sign that spring is on the way. Now it seems that we see them in our gardens when they should not be here. I have seen Robins in my gardens all winter long this year. The picture you see above is of a Robin during the fall because when I went outside to snap a picture of one today, I could not find one nearby. Ah, the green grass, I cannot wait.Other signs of Spring would be the Daffodil's. With warmer temps, they are finally starting to open, Yippee... Forsythia is starting to open as well. When the Daffodils and Forsythia open, I know that Spring has finally arrived in our neck of the woods. By weeks end, I expect to see lots of yellow in our area. Our Gardens are usually over run by Gold Finches in the winter but this winter we have had only a few of them stay as winter guest. The predominate winter guest have been a small flock of Red-Winged Black Birds! They are the main birds you hear singing on the video above.
They are beautiful birds with their yellow and red wings glowing in the sun. Their red coloring is difficult for me to capture on film. They are a busy bird and very easily scared with movement by me. If you would like to know more about these birds, Click HERE. They have become most chatty lately. I think they are about ready to take off for their homelands.The Birdhouses are cleaned out and holes chewed by squirrels now repaired. Soon, the birdhouses will be bustling with activity by my feathered friends.Here are some of those pesky squirrels which like to chew on things such as birdhouses. Argggg, stay in the trees will you!Ah, a beautiful Blue Jay at the feeders. I wish I could have flowers in my Garden as pretty as this fella! Ah, sure SIGNS OF SPRING, In the Garden...
