This is one of two Honey locust trees in my backyard. It has burst forth with the most fragrant blossoms! I wish you could smell them! The big bumble bees are drunk with the nectar. They come in numbers too many to count. I watch them load up with the luscious blooms and fall in a drunken spiral towards the grass only to drift upwards again for more. In years past I have seen humming birds at the tree tops but, alas, none so far this year. Butterflies flit around these trees as well but never becoming quite so intoxicated as the bees. I have been taking my stitching with me to the backyard just so I can breathe in this lovely perfume.
As if in a competition with the Locust tree the back hedges are putting forth a showy white dance on the winds as well.
The rabbits are everywhere. The west Nile virus killed off so many of the large predator birds that would normally have kept the rabbit population in check. I have fortified the vegetable plants with masses of chicken wire to keep them out...this little guy is using the 'I cant see you so you cant see me' approach to stealthy maneuvers.
