Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Just an Assortment

With the one warm day we had last week, the frogs appeared in the pond and left this mass of eggs.


Have been hearing owls' call but no sign of inhabitants of the owl house high up in this sycamore tree.


Down at the bottom of our driveway the wetlands to the right still has not put on any spring coloring.


The small creek in the glen has one spot of green showing.


And the bluebirds continue to stake claim to this box.  There are more than two so I don't know how that will work out.

It looks quite rural where you live. In no time at all that area will be covered in new green growth and frogs, of course.

There will be other frogs and toads yet to visit and lay their eggs. I think some of them get eaten by the goldfish though I have yet to see any this year. Dan said he spied them. As I started to type this the frogs started croaking again. Have been quiet since the last warm day.

All wonderful photos! My favorite, though, is that little bird!

Happy Week to you,
