A Sunny Day

Just a few days ago, we had perfect weather with the temperatures in the 80’s and low humidity.  I took advantage of the warming sun and just sat near a flower bed.  And I wasn’t the only one. The blooms were covered with all kinds of pollinators.  I managed to photograph a few.

The American White Pelicans were flying against the clear blue sky and some small flocks of visiting birds were poking around looking for bugs. One little bird, a Ruby Crowned Kinglet, didn’t seem to mind me sitting there and came very close.

Since that sunny day, our winter has returned with heavy rain and cold temperatures.  But as it always happens in these parts, the weather is about to change and a great weekend is promised.

    Sunny but icy cold scrap the car Windows morning in central PA

  2. I do hope the rest of your life is as serene and scenic as it seems to be in your blog posts. Blossoms in the middle of December! What a treat.

    Sounds idyllic. Sun, bird chatter and the hum of insects. It’ll be a while before that happens again here. 😉

    Lovely photos! Nice to see flowers.. frost these last few days have made the flowerbeds rather sorry looking.

    Believe it or not, I have several photos I took at the Brazoria wildlife refuge that show that same sort of bee (a carpenter?) on a pretty red sage. It’s always so neat to see the same pollinators on the same flowers — but separated by some distance. The white pelicans are back at their posts (quite literally!) at the foot of the Kemah/Seabrook bridge. They roost during the day on the pilings of an old pier on the Seabrook side. If you look toward the first house on Todville Road, there they are.

    Gee, you have more blooming than we do. The milkweed already got frosted here.

    Beautiful set of shots! I love the little ruby-crowned kinglets. I’ve seen one flit through my garden in the last week or so, but he hasn’t come close to me like yours has to you!
