Such a Pretty Thing

I'm looking forward to it being even more beautiful than it already is!
Note to all my blog friends:
I've been looking at all your beautiful posts but haven't been very good at commenting lately. Seems I am taking advantage of the beautiful weather to get yard work done. The leaf clean-up has been taking the most time.
I've done everything from raking, to blowing, to scooping with the tractor bucket!!
Who knew living in the woods would be so much work!

It may not be Spring here on the mountain, but it sure feels like it!
And looks like it.

Morning Crocus
Afternoon Crocus

I was even able to find a butterfly that thought it was Spring!

Winter Question Mark

  The White-throated Sparrow was prentending not to be there in the bush. 

 And the Barberry Bush is not holding back.
Looks like we were all fooled today!

Late Winter Birds

It's been pretty nice here lately at Sunny Side Up and I've been raking and moving plants around the yard and just haven't had the camera out as much as I should. Now I could tell you the truth and say that most of the pictures I've been taking are horrible and I just don't have anything nice to post but I'm pretty sure none of you want to hear that! 
So here are a couple of my little feathered friends looking for sunflower seed in the garden. 

Carolina Chickadee
American Goldfinch
Tufted Titmouse

Hope you all have sweet bird songs in your gardens!
