Number Three

Once again some native columbine that hummingbirds sometimes visit.


A fairy is here
With red wings and yellow spears
Battling in cool winds.

Nip the red tips of that flower with your teeth and you see why it's called Honeysuckle. One of my favorite spring plants and so beautifully captured.

Pauline, not honeysuckle. That's a native columbine.

It's beautiful, and now i will wonder if it would taste as sweet to us as it would to the birds.

I'm still not able to get great close-ups of the small blossoms. Here the lilacs are just beginning, n the Lillies of the valley are budding.

Hope your trip is fun n you are well over there- A bientote!

I always like to see the descriptive little bits of poetry.
