Welcome to another Watery Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday! I enjoy showing all of my friends in Blogland what we have to offer here in "Friendly Manitoba". Today I have a photo that my husband took of a Female
Downy Woodpecker. She was sitting in our plum tree eating grubs. Isn't she beautiful? This photo was taken two week ago.There is an even closer image of her at the bottom of this post. But first...
The watery shots are of the raindrops on the newly blossoming Lily of the Valley and on my spent Tulips.
It has been raining for the last week nearly and all of the fruit trees in our yard have blossomed!
I love the blossoming trees. The one below is our plum tree, it has lovely pink flowers on it. It's the same one that the woodpecker was sitting in two weeks ago. See what rain can do for you?
Then our apple tree, above, it has white blossoms on it.
And below, is a close up of the woodpecker. I'm sorry if it shows up a little blurry on your monitor.
She is so pretty that I just had to get a closer view of her.
Before I go I must tell you about a giveaway at A Doctor in the House . My friend Tammy is offering a $25.00 gift card from Target! So be sure to visit and leave a comment.
I hope your Wednesday is not as watery as mine, I got wet while taking the photos of the trees and flowers today. Happy Wednesday to all.
