Plum blossoms

Spring is indeed making an early appearance, despite the piles of snow in the parking lot at work. The plum tree in the front yard is the centerpiece of the birdie spa. Last year, it didn't bloom at all.

This year, delicate rosy buds and pink blossoms pop open next to red leaves, just in time to confuse the rufous hummingbirds which we should start seeing in the next week or two.

Juncos and chickadees were very active in the birdie spa today. I forgot how quick both birds are. More later....
