Our Lilacs are in bloom

Here I'm looking down from the deck

All the way down the side yard

Their scent is magnificent

We have 3 bushes..about 9-10 feet tall

Daily Visitor

Shy Eastern Blue Bird
Not so shy Downy Woodpecker

Blue Bird from afar

Our new Friend..she hasn't a name yet
but she'll have one soon. She spends alot of time
scratching up seed ..LOL

She comes and eats and goes daily now. I hear them calling in the woods behind us. One day
"Tom" came with her and waited outside the fence , patiently showing his feathers, till she was
finished eating.
Wonder what "the rest of the story" was.
smiles, Deena
