Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.
Afternoon May Day walkabout looking for flowers. Just had some heavy rain. While in shutdown mode, I haven’t used the front door that much. When I went out today, I noticed a bird nest has been built above the door. The door is splattered with mud. I need to figure what type of bird built the nest. Last year, a House or Carolina Wren built a nest in a hole where the doorbell button used to be mounted. The Plum tree is still in bloom, the Japanese Maple tree has filled out with red leaves. The last Tulip to bloom this spring is yellow. The first outdoor California Poppy flower opened today. Also, one of the Lilac shrubs planted last spring has started to bloom.
