Spring is Emerging!

Terri has given the Sunday Stills challenge of “Emerging” this week Here is my response. Look who’s here with his breeding plumage emerging from the winter subtle colors.

And in a few days he has emerged in his full yellow glory . The American Goldfinch has got a seed to eat from the feeder.

Sometimes Mrs. Goldfinch also shares some space at the feeder

Below you can see a small bed with puschkinia around the edge and emerging daylilies in the center. This photo was taken a week ago and now the grass has greened up and the shoots of lilies are inches taller!

The star magnolia is in a spring rain shower and almost ready to unfold and show us its beauty.

    What a pretty bird Anne. Lovely images. We tend to see our native finches in the warmer months. At the moment we have cheeky King Parrots, magpies, willy wag tails, satin bower birds and crows in abundance as we head into the cold weather.

        They are very different to the English magpies and have the most beautiful warble. Fog has finally lifted here this morning with snow falls forecast for the nearby mountains.

          It is that warble that is the sound of Australia for me. We had a wonderful time there almost 30 years ago when we drove in a campervan the whole way round Aus. We even went across the Nullabor!

            How wonderful. We did the Nullabor on 2014 with our 4WD and camper trailer. Had a wonderful trip. All those memories are popping up in my FB feed this week. I haven’t made it right around yet but hopefully will one day soon.
