Birds Just Passing Through


We have been enjoying the migratory birds that stop by our feeders in April.  This is a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak.



The beautiful Indigo Buntings have been here for several days.



Yesterday, I just 'happened' to be in the garage stalking the birds, when this immature Orchard Oriole stopped by for about 2 seconds.


This White-crowned Sparrow just now stopped by before heading toward his breeding grounds in Canada and other points north.


I hope you are seeing some pretty and different birds in your area!

Easter



Jeep brought the message at the Easter Sunrise Service at the McAdams Baptist Church. On Easter, the Baptist and Methodist meet together for the sunrise service. When it's at the Baptist church, the Methodist Minister brings the message and vice-versa. After the worship service, everyone was invited to share a delicious breakfast in the Fellowship Hall. At 11:00 A. M. Jeep brought the message at the Salem United Methodist Church's annual homecoming service. After the worship service we all enjoyed another wonderful pot-luck meal.  It's no wonder why I can't lose weight!

Spring!

One day it is sleeting and snowing and the next thing you know...it's Spring!



This is one of the first Jonquils to bloom in our yard.


These little Violas survived being covered with snow a few days ago.



The Hyacinths smell so sweet! 


Bradford Pears are blooming everywhere.  This was shot through the windshield.


This Red Bud tree is in my sister's yard, but we saw some blooming in the woods as we traveled the Natchez Trace yesterday.



Of course, yellow Jonquils are everywhere!


Also, the Japanese Magnolias are in bloom.

I hope you are having a nice Spring!
