Moments to Appreciate

 

Hi Y’all!

I want to take time to appreciate some more sights and smells.

A buttercup.

Some people think these are wild canaries.  They are the American Goldfinch in breeding plumage.  However, they don’t usually nest until August.

 

And this less colorful version is Mrs. Goldfinch.

Hope y’all have a wonderful Sunday.

Y’all come back now!

    We have a mountain side that fills with poppies every year and we keep going up to see if they are blooming yet.
    Not yet....but soon.
