Nature Notes: Around my yard

It amazes me how I went from one rose to a mass of them blooming within a few days.
Can you spot the two catbirds and the female cardinal.
Below is a better look at one of the catbirds.
The female cardinal looks like she's going to take a nose dive.

The grackle was in my neighbor's yard.
I like the way my hydrangeas look after rain.

The hydrangea leaves do look shiny and just showered! I spotted one catbird immediately but had to search for the other and the lady cardinal! But I found them. Reminded me of Highlights for Chidren search and find puzzles!

Catbirds are fun to have around, their sounds are almost nonstop sometimes. Your roses are beautiful and the hydrangea is lovely. Thanks for sharing, have a happy week!
