Vermont backyard Flowers -May 2012. South Burlington, Vermont



May in our Vermont backyard, delivers lots of green, and lilacs, tulips, roses, birds...

 































The lawn looks like a forest of trees. Time to mow, however first I wish to watch the grass seed stalks sway in the breeze.

     Yellow-Billed Cuckoo in our backyard Locust tree (May 30). The large white spots on its otherwise black undertail surface unfortunately do not show well in these photos. To see the tail features see photo on this site http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/yellow-billed_cuckoo/sounds
















Remember nature's beauty shines greatest when we don't leave behind litter to spoil the view!

Just a short bike ride away was this reminder.










                                         Gotta get back to work tending to the plants including the garden.
                                     
                  Need to grow lots of vegetables, so as to have enough for us after Mrs. rabbit has her fill.
