The brown thrashers are a frequent visitor to my bird baths and they are getting rowdier with spring in full force.
The cardinals and robins also enjoy bathing on my deck. The cardinal likes the bath the robin is in.
The robin seemed to notice me shooting through the deck door and moved to another bird bath. The cardinal cautiously ventured into the bath the robin had left.
Butterfly weed is coming up all over my garden which I love to see.
My hostas are starting to emerge. Some are barely starting while others are growing vigorously.
I think the variegated hostas are my favorites as far as the leaves go although the blooms on the solid green ones are my favorite of the hosta blooms.
I'm pleased to see my lavender coming back. I started this lavender from seed over 10 years ago and each spring it comes back.
