Spring Color in Feathers and Flowers (2020)

An American goldfinch surveys our garden prairie from its favorite spiderwort perch.

Lately, I’ve been staying close to home in the mornings where I’ve been splitting my time between our garden prairie and our mulberry tree. While the mulberry attracts a variety of birds, the spiderwort plants in our native prairie plot have been bringing in beautiful goldfinches such as the one in the featured image. Below is a collection of some of my favorite shots from the last few weeks.

A female goldfinch in her subtle attire is every bit as attractive as the male.

A red-bellied woodpecker is ready for a breakfast of mulberries.

A brown thrasher feeds her baby a juicy mulberry.

One of Nature’s design masterpieces.

Cedar waxwings gorge on mulberries almost every morning.

This cedar waxwing is full!

The after breakfast preening routine.

As you can see, I have no shortage of photo opportunities right in my front yard every morning. I hope you liked this sample. More to come as spring enters its final stretch.

Happy Naturing,

America is beautiful. I vote to keep it that way.

  1. Goldfinch and spiderwort – beauty resting on beauty, a juxtaposing exquisiteness piercing the world for a second, existing for each other, the cosmos in love with itself, playing.  The Goldfinch secretly waits during winter for just this moment, keeping all his gold hidden. Spiderwort waits underground, dreaming of goldfinch.  Didn’t see anywhere on your blog to post a comment.  But I love your love of beauty and the way you keep sharing it.   – Chrissy

  2. God certainly created beautiful life!
