Spring Has, at Last, Sprung at the Owl Backyard

Should you be inclined to click on the picture to enlarge it, you will see Trinity's swing and the ever-present dandilions. The crabapple tree is gorgeous, and I could not do it justice in a picture.

Wow. You really live there? That is just beautiful.

What a beautiful spot! Hope you get fruit from all that! And I spotted a bird feeder too - do you get interesting birds there?

And excuse my ignorance, being from the UK - which is the "Dairy State"??

Yep, PG, I do. And for about one week or so in the spring it is like a fabulous park. Doesn't last long, sadly. Gilly, it is a crab apple tree, so all we get from the beautiful blossoms is a lawn full of tiny, bitter apples to rake up. It's worth it for the wonderful sight and aroma in the spring. Our daughter Kris lives near a woods in the country, and they have all kinds of songbirds...oreoles, finches, bluebirds, cardinals, woodpeckers and more. Us, not so much this year. We have some chickadees and a cardinal pair, mourning doves and robins...but nothing exotic. The "Dairy State" is Wiscon. Wisconsin is just to the left of Lake Michigan. The little red barn bird feeder is an allusion to the numerous cattle. The long grass you can just glimpse in the rear is around a little creek in the back. We can't mow it because if we tried we would tumble down the slope!
