Hummingbirds and Spring


Hey puppers and kittehs, it's been brought to my attention that lots of our furends are still in the throws of winter....where the frick is the spring?????

Wells, I took some pics (well, Ma took the pics, since I don't have thumbs....)
to tide ya overs until the arrested Spring arrives.









 Now, you might be wonderin' the names of all these purty flowers ~ I don't know, I'm a doggie and I can't read! BOL hehehehe 

And, finally,  whats ya'll have been waiting for.......

                                      HUMMINGBURD TIME!!!!!

 
 
 
Here's one of the babies (we're pretty sure there are two in there!) waitin' for Mom to feed him
 
 

  Mom finally arrives to feed the little guy! ( I swear the little one was waitin' like 5 minutes like that til Moms showed up!!)


Ma said this is why all of Ma's plants are in 'jail'....I was just havin' a taste!
(I swear she can be such a drama queen!!!

   Don't worry puppers, all the plants are non-poisonous, so no pups was harmed in the makin' of this post!! hehehehe
 

To all the puppers and kittehs in the cold today, I'm sendin' you some California spring.....hope it gets to you soon!!!

  1. Ok, I am officially refusing to post any more pictures of flowers because mine are quite hideous compared to yours. Yours are SOOOO beautiful!!! (Stupid desert flowers.)

    I thought that it was good to "stop and taste the flowers"? BOL

  12. Aha - so now we know where Spring is hiding - in Ruby's yard!!! Actually you know we don't mind all this snow at all. But it is melting very quickly - doesnt last long this time of the year.

    Your flowers are just gorgeous. Mom says she may have to reinforce our jailed plants in some way that Lightning can't breach. He just jumps over the fence she has now:(

  22. Ruby! Thanks for the wonderful flower pictures . . .so very beautiful. Here in West Central Minniesnowda we are expecting 40 F degrees today which will help out snows to thaw a bit. If we can keep that temp up for a few weeks we could be snowless by the middle or end of April. That will be sooo nice.

    Cheers,
    Stella

  25. Wow, Ruby! Those flowers are just gorgeous! So vibrant! Those photos will surely chase away the winter blues for those who still have cold weather. The hummingbirds are awesome. It's so cool that you and your people can watch the babies grow up. :-)

  32. What beautiful photos! Spring is on her way, she's just taking her sweet time. Happy Easter Ruby.

  33. Usually we have tons of flowers and flowering trees by now, but this year....nothing. Today is warmish and rainy so maybe soon we'll have pretty colorful flowers, too.

    Mom said Fudge didn't have to wear bunny ears this year, but she didn't say that nobody had to, so we're all waiting to see who she decides to torture.
