One of those days...

Some days you just roll out of bed and the world explodes around you! That need not be a bad thing...
 This year's hanging basket...I call it the lavender menace ;-)
 It just needed some love...and plant food...and water!
 Everything got watered today.
 Momma Red-bellied woodpecker!
 Filling up her beak, time and again...
 Then flying off to feed her young one!
As I mentioned, we had some rain today
 But then the skies broke open and the sun hit just right, 
 And ROY G BIV appeared!!!
 And then this sweet little Downy came
Another female...gathering food for her young one? Hope, hope.
T'is a silly place, this Camelot, where squirrels play the Stand-up Bass...

Great post! Even a squirrel-hater like me loves the bass player.

Love the hanging basket!

Send some rain this way - my grass is starting to sound crunchy.

No rain here, as usual, but the finches continue to tend their nest. Looks like they may have hatched a young 'un though we haven't spotted him yet. I got a short video of one of our cottontails last night but can't seem to get it to the computer. Love your photo of the squirrel.

Aha, just minutes later, SWMBO came in to report she had just seen Mama and Papa finch return to the nest at the same time and two little heads pop up with their beaks wide open waiting to be fed.
