Golden Finch & Hummingbird for Wild Wednesday

Happy wild Wednesday! It's a rainy winter day here in Maryland so I thought it'd be nice to brighten things up with some summer bird photos. Hummingbirds often rested (and one year, even nested!) in our rose of Sharon bushes so we put the feeder right in front of them for easy access.

Last summer was my first year planting giant zinnias and they were a big hit with the butterflies and small birds, particularly the golden finches. God willing, I'll plant more giant zinnias this summer to continue the fun.

But for now, planting is just a dream. The snow from the blizzard is melting and it feels like spring but winter is definitely still here.

Thank you for visiting. I hope that you are safe and warm. May God bless you!
