What do April showers bring?

Green, green, green… and already a few flowers. It’s amazing what a little bit of rain can do this time of year. Since the little snow we had melted a couple of weeks ago, the only thing colorful in the landscape were the wild birds visiting our feeders.

The grass, forest, and surrounding meadows were all a VERY dry brown. Last night we had a pretty good soaking rain with a little thunder, and this morning green was sprouting up everywhere. Now this is a wild bird blog, and the point is now that it’s starting to look like Spring, the time is getting close when even more of the summer migrants are going to start showing up.  

Also, if you’d like to get started on planting a summer garden for wildbirds, hummers or butterflies, don’t forget to stop in the store. We’ve got everything you need!
