End of the Month View, March 2017

Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters, and End of the Month View

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, March 30, 2017
Wild Violets are growing near my kitchen door. And if you look closely, you will see a small butterfly on the right side of the photo.

Spring Beauty Claytonia virginica are appearing all over the lawn...

...and so are the Dandelions!

I was afraid that mid-month freezing temperatures would damage the Clematis buds, but they are hardier than I thought!

Kerria japonica 'Pleniflora' aka Easter Rose

I recently bought Petunias in hanging baskets to attract Hummingbirds.

My Onions, planted in large tubs, were damaged by the hail on Monday afternoon. But it is just the tops. I am sure the onions, safely below the soil, are fine. (Those wiggly-looking things are buds blown off of Pine trees).

Saturday's Critters and Camera Critters
I am happy to report that my insect control guy, Catch 'Em And Eat 'Em, is on the job!
(That is an old car tire finding a second life as a flower bed).

And birds - let's not forget our fine feathered friends! Our gardens would be much too quiet without birdsongs.

I hope you have a wonderful week-end!

  1. Beautiful pictures. I especially like the violets and the anole.

  2. Love those flowers! I think I have to be patient a little while longer up north...oh, and you have Purple Finches! Just a little jealous...

  3. Now that's a good looking insect catcher guy!

  4. Hello, your flowers are pretty. I see the little butterfly. I love the cute lizard and the Purple Finches. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  5. Such pretty flowers. I love your all-natural insect-control critter!

  6. Neat critter and lovely bird photos ~ thanks,

    Wishing you a Happy Weekend ~ ^_^

  7. Nice set of photos...I love violets...they are all in some of my irises and I just leave them cause I love them. I even think their leaves are pretty.

  8. I wish I had a Catch 'Em and Eat 'Em with a taste for slugs. Ducks maybe. Now there's a thought!

  9. I have plenty of those Catch 'Em and Eat 'Em's at my house. I just wish they would stay outside to do their job, because I certainly don't enjoying having to catch them and throw them back out! Funny how it has its foot on its tail like that.


I enjoy your comments!

Thank you for visiting!
