Even though Spring has been cool, we have been getting some rain and some of my herbs from last year are making a comeback.
Looks like I will have lots of parsley again this year.
Just before Christmas, I bought myself a new camera. I've been so busy with work that I haven't had much time to play with it. This weekend I decided to take some time off and try photographing some of the birds and other critters in our backyard.
The poor cardinal has been hanging out in our yard for more than a week. He's looking for a mate and sings and sings. So far, no takers. Maybe the rotten magnolia blossoms are a turnoff. I'm starting to feel sorry for him.
Maybe he will have more luck in the lilac bushes. They should start blooming soon.
See him there in the upper left corner? I caught him just as he took off. No doubt on his way back to the magnolia.
We also have some rabbits. Last weekend there was a mother and two babies. This weekend just one baby. I'm hoping nothing happened to the others and they have intentionally separated. He looks like he is getting pretty big.
Do you think I can train him to eat the clover and creeping charlie out of the lawn? Despite last year's drought, the lawn actually looks great in the backyard. I think I'll try the corn gluten as a pre-emergent again this year. It won't get rid of the clover and creeping charlie, but maybe it will keep down the crabgrass.
