Azalea: Blooming from the last branches

There are only a few branches left on our azalea bush but it's still blooming. I can't believe it, really. I had to trim the bush down to about three of four limbs just to remove all the dead ones. I thought we'd saw the last of these beautiful flowers last year, but it looks like I was wrong. It's good to see the azaleas blooming once again.

Squirrel with a bread stick: happy spring

Yesterday was a beautiful spring day. The sun was shinning and magic was in the air. Cliche, I know, but there really was this positive sense of life in the essence of the day, yesterday. It's still prevails today even though it's a little on the cloudy side.

Spring is still here and my summer friends are beginning to move around in the yard. Squirrel was especially excited yesterday as mom placed a handful of bread sticks leftover from the night before near the bird feeder. As you can see, this rodent got the prize of the season. The bread stick is almost as big as its consumer in the photo and proved to be a challenge to move through the branches. Squirrel had to do a little dragging without dropping.
