1015 Onion Bloom

This was our first year for onions and this was our only onion bloom it is a 10/15 onion.

Not all onions bloom and the bloom is where the seeds are at. If you get no blooms you either buy more seeds or onion sets for the next planting.

These blooms are similar looking to garlic blooms just different color flowers. These two pics were taken 2 different days so you can see the progress of the changing flowers.

All gardens have beauty even before the harvest.

Rose – breasted Grosbeak

I kept seeing this bird out the French doors in the feeders but I had no clue what kind of bird it was.

I had to ask someone that had connections with others who were the experts.

It turns out this is a Rose- breasted Grosbeak this is a female the males are quite opposite they are black white and red. I only saw this one bird.

They migrate through our area. I was able to get pictures for a few days of this beauty.

That is two birds I have never seen before that I have gotten to capture on camera during the last few weeks. Life is GOOD!

Redbird posing

This female redbird was glad to see some birdseed in this feeder.

I love it when the birds are molting so they have those fuzzy feathers in the pics. The wind was blowing a little so it really accented her feathers.

She was quite curious about my camera so she posed for a few shots as she was eating some black oiled sun flower seeds.

The wildlife in our area is as curious about us as we are them.
