Years ago, I had a California Quail lay eggs in my lavender. I didn’t know it until they had hatched. Apparently, Quail hens like to lay their eggs close to the ground.
Above are quail eggs I created in watercolor, pan pastels and color pencil.
This memory got me thinking about how to attract birds to my yard. So I googled it and found this great article on “Landscaping Tips for a Bird Friendly Yard.”
The three basics (hence the 3 eggs…) are food, water and shelter. The article goes into greater detail if you are interested. I learned a thing or two – hope you will too. 🙂
I took these photos of my yard today – Enjoy!
The above is a crab apple tree in full bloom. Can you find the bee?
I like to grow my own herbs to add to my cooking. The above photo are chives and oregano. The chive flowers are just starting to open.
The blueberries (above) are in bloom. Looks like we are going to have a good crop this year!
Just love the sweet scent of Honeysuckle! I planted the above plant to attract hummingbirds and butterflies to my yard.
Hope you have a happy day! 🙂
