Visitors welcome !!

Come sit a spell!! Enjoy the view!! (Click the picture to enlarge it.  Click on the enlarged… and see even more detail.)  Have a glass of iced tea?? ~~ Yes, there’s a lot to see from this vantage point. The camera is not capturing the beauty of the pink flowers blooming in the trees (so I’ve added a telephoto image). I’m hearing birds sing, and wind chimes ring. There is a red Cardinal in the black sunflower seed feeder near the Bluebird house.  A bird is snagging nesting material from the container (top left of picture).  A Hummingbird feeder hangs from the eave and will receive nectar at my first glimpse of a Hummingbird!!  One Shepherd’s hook has been removed in favor of my homemade support for hanging baskets of flowers, and Begonias.  Out of view, extreme left, are the Topsy-Turvy upside-down Hummingbird planters.  Out of view, extreme right, is the support for the Topsy-Turvy upside-down tomato planters.  ~~  Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!

Postscript, Sunday, March 18, 2012, 9:00 AM: Last night, I checked an Internet site regarding Hummingbird migration.  A sighting was reported in North Carolina on March 15th.  I prepared nectar (last night) and put it in the two feeders this morning.

Postscript, Sunday, 6:45 PM: I searched the Internet this evening to learn the name of the beautiful trees.  I’m convinced it is an Eastern Redbud (Cercis Canadensis).  The link is only one of many sites that I visited.
