Spring Is Sprung II

Yes, there was an earlier one. But this time I mean it! Carmi's Thematic Photographic 289 is Everything's gone green. And at last, it has.




And here is a friendly D.C. kitty:



UPDATE: This is the first time I've seen a goldfinch at the feeders. (It is also the first time I tried nyjer seeds in the feeder.)

Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

Those crocuses/croci are really lovely.

Hope you have a great green season...

Oh hello Kitty cat! I have a visiting kitty I'm cat sitting for crying right now for friends. But she's way better off in the comfortable two rooms I gave her. Some unfriendlies to beware of here! It's hard to keep promises here too, even with temperatures reaching the 70's this week, they say snow possible on Sunday! YIKES!

Is that a baby forsythia or an azalea? It's awfully yellow for an azalea.

The azaleas here in ATL are late this year. They're usually out by now. And the Masters is next weekend! Oh noes!

Forsythia!

I don't know why I typed azalea.

Man, that cat is friendly!

I love the goldfinch- since we get thistles at work, we have an abundance of them. I occasionally eat the thistle stems, but they are even more of a pain to harvest than nettles.

Still looks a trifle chilly round your way! That American Goldfinch is lovely, a really bright yellow. We have nyjer seed, usually feeding Goldfinches (European) Siskins and Redpoll. But not this year, too much natural food around, I'm told!

Im glad to say that unlike Gilly we have flock os goldfinch visiting us nearly every day. I'' be watching The Masters too to see who wins themselves a Green Jacket.
