About then I turn towards the home and cool down on the computer catching up.... Haven't done that in a while so you know.....I'm pushing things here. Prepping for that garden tour set me back near 2 months in what I hope to accomplish in the yard this summer.

Sorry you feel so far behind...but, remember, if you don't take care of yourself, then you'll never get it done and never be able to enjoy it.

Be safe!

Very nice shots, Sage.

Aside from the beauty of the birds, I like the wood exposed in the low water. It reminds me of my favorite pond and what I plan to copy in my own pond.

I didn't get my photo of the goldfinch on the sunflower but I did finally get some of him on the coneflowers getting a snack.

Excellent photos linrose!!!! Ya know.... my yellow finches have been hanging around my tomato plants for at least a week or so. I couln't figure out what they wanted so I sat there real quiet like and watched. Are you sitting down>>>>? They're perching themselves on the wire o the tomato supports and pecking my tomatoes and eating the seeds. Have you ever seen them do that before?

Great photos, linrose.

I really like to see goldfinches...they seem like such cheerful birds---well at least color-wise. I always think of chickadees as being cheerful.

It's great to see your wonderful photos again, Viceroy. I still think you should enter them again in the POM in the appropriate month...even if you have to wait 11 months to do it.
