A Chick Does Tropical Garden

It's for the birds...

One of the reasons I LOVE living where I live is because of the wonderful bird population out here. 

Today I was outside in my garden "Skype-ing" with my friend, LisaY, who lives in France. (Click HERE for my blog post about LisaY and me...) While sitting there, a wonderful little hummingbird flew into my garden and started visiting each of my salvia plants. I grabbed my camera and took a shot, hoping that I got it enough in focus. Luckily, it came out great, and so I did a little bit of photo magic on it to bring the focus more onto the little bird rather than the background:


I LOVE the wonderful creatures that show up in my garden.  A few days ago, two doves (Lovey Dovies) sat for 3 hours on my little garden bench, cooing and snuggling up to each other.  It was beautiful.  Here are some photos:





We also often have birds use our rock fountain for a drinking fountain/bird bath.  Why someone would want to drink their bath water, I don't know, but these birds seem to enjoy it:


And then, finally (at least for now) I captured a photo of a female cardinal while on my walk the other day.  (This is also posted on a previous post.)  Now, I just have to catch a picture of her husband!


I'll be sure to post more as I see 'em comin'!
