A Noisy Garden Visitor!

~A close~up of a Tulip Popular tree bloom
Photo taken in late May

~A Raven, I'm told, I thought it was a Crow
but my father~in~law assures me it's a Raven.
He has been hanging out in a tree below the
greenhouse for 2 wks, he's quite a noisy fellow,
but fun to watch!

~It's June, and everything seems to be
blooming at once!

Those hens and chick blooms are gorgeous. I just bought some hens and chicks this year and can't wait till they bloom now.

Gorgeous photos, Cat. Your Tulip Popular tree bloom is especially
breathtaking. You are back 'in top form'! I have been especially thinking of you tonight 'Under the Strawberry Moon' (The title of one of my 'unfinished' novels).*BIG HUGS*

When I was looking for my old collections of Hindi songs, then I saw in Visitthebest ...the best sites collection available which helped me to get the required song.

I love crows, errr Ravens. Had a couple holding a turf war across the street. Noisey, obnoxious, funny all at once.

Hi Cat, what beautiful photos you have taken once again. Whether Raven or know what I cannot help be reminded of when I see them?? Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds". If you have ever seen that movie, when they come out of the school and see all those crows that have gathered...ow, sends a chill up my spine.

Your father in law is right. Having a Raven in the garden is something to treasure. Despite their reputation as a bad omen, they are wonderfully entertaining birds. I absolutely love them.

I came by earlier and caught up on your posts but then realized I had forgotten to comment because I was so caught up in your gorgeous pictures!

It was nice to see your post on my blog ... I have been away so long, I was sure I had been dropped off everyone's visit list!
