Everyone gets along....

Isn't this flower unusual?

It begins as a little pillow

and then it breaks open into a beautiful blue flower!

We have so many babies this year! Baby bunnies, chipmunks, thrashers,
Downy woodpeckers, cardinals and all kinds of other birds.
It's fun to see them interacting.

We actually saw a Brown Thrasher chasing a chipmunk out of the forsythia yesterday.
She must have a nest with babies in the branches.

The bunny wanted the chipmunk to play but the chipmunk ran away!

Wanna play?

Is he down here?

Where did her go?

Hope your day is full of marvels.

I am going to make an effort to answer questions on my blog
by commenting on each post.

I've had so many great comments and questions
that I think this is the best way to answer them all!

Thanks to all of you for stopping by to visit
and for making my blog so much FUN!

I love the purple flower and to be amongst all that wildlife must be lovely.
The bunny and is it a chipmunk or squirrel? are so cute.
We do not have chipmuks over here.

I used to have the purple balloon flowers in my perennial garden. After a few years they disappeared so I enjoyed seeing yours. Very cute pictures of the critters. We have been seeing a lot of chipmunks this year. They are so sweet.

It is a chipmunk, Carolyn. We have lots of squirrels, too and in this area we even have albino squirrels that are solid white. The chipmunk is a lot smaller than a squirrel and cuter!

Thanks for all the sweet comments!

I have those flowers too. It's called "Balloon Flower" since the buds look like balloons :) Very cool flower. We've had baby downies here too. I saw two blue jays after a squirrel the other day too. Just dive bombing him relentlessly. Kind of funny to watch. Take care :)

Hi Sweetie, that blue flower is gorgeous. What beautiful pics you share today. How sweet the bunny and chipmunk are. We have lots of bunnies and squirrels. They tease Miss Beazy running back and forth. It can be comical at times.

Enjoy your pretty suroundings.
Blessings and hugs, Celestina Marie
