Peony For Your Thoughts?

My contribution to Michelle's Nature Notes (#363).


I was doing some (much-needed) weeding in the backyard when Mr. or Mrs. Robin decided to help.

I'm also contributing to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #113. Here's a common grackle, sitting pretty.

And a horse pasture full of buttercups:

Does the common gackle make an uncommon cackle? We don't have such fine looking birds here.
Love the shot through the fence to the dandelion pasture!

Oops I see it should be grackle!

A perfect combination- fences and birds.

I like that last shot. Such a pretty, yellow field!

Peonies! They're impossible to grow here as it's too warm, so I am very envious - they are gorgeous flowers. Nice birds too. I looked up common grackle, then felt sorry for him/her, as the names of all of the other varities must give Mr Common an inferiority complex, especially the Slender-billed grackle, the Golden tufted grackle, and the Velvet-fronted grackle!

Pretty Peony.
Nice fence that the Grackle is sitting on. I think they have pretty colors in their feathers.

Great title, and lovely snaps. I especially like that first fence, it's something I could see around here! Hehehe!

Have a great week-end!

Great grackle picture, you really captured the bird's iridescence.
