Those red-bellied woodpeckers are handsome birds.

Have you eaten any redbud this year? I've been snacking on the flowers here and there, and I just found out the see pods are edible while they're green.

The box turtle looks like its slightly annoyed!

I wish we had turtles like that one! And the woodpecker is indeed a very good-looking chap.

I have not found the right spot for my birdfeeder yet - when you build a new house on bare land there are no handy branches about...

I've never seen a turtle in what passes for wild around L.A. (Or a real lake.)

I've been slackadaisical on the redbud salad front this year, B^4. More pics, less picking.

Alexia and B^4, there was a little hummingbird buzzing around the basement sliding door a couple days in a row. I'm contemplating setting up a feeder for them.

Looks like somebody's mother's a real bitch!

A Corgi bitch, that is. Sorry. Too cute! I can't stop looking...
