The Return of Chippy
After a long and cold winter, Chippy returned to our deck where the bird seed is plenty. Not that I mind him/her taking some of the bird seed. But some is not enough for these little critters. They take all they can find and stash it away for winter.
Chippies will be chippies and there is nothing I can do, except stop feeding the birds.
The blossoms of this species of flower usually have just one layer of petals around its center.
