Spring Blooms in California

There is no doubt spring has arrived.

Not only have two baby hummingbirds hatched and fledged.

The ornamental plum tree has burst into bloom.
It isn't a native tree, but it is frequented by a wide range of creatures. Bees and hummingbirds visit the flowers while others, like the northern mockingbird, will wait for the summer fruit.

This is FIK's birth tree and the center of his domain. FIK is a male Allen's hummingbird that was saved by our dog Inali and who spent three nights in our house after his natal nest was destroyed. The Whole Story.
