It has been a very long winter in Montana. The snow pack is over 200% of normal ... with spring creek run off just getting started. The hills and meadows are now turning a lovely bright green. We are starting to see flowers blooming along the roadsides. The trees at The Jeffers inn are in full bloom. It is rare thing when ALL of the Jeffers trees and lilacs are blooming at the same time. This season ... it is happening ... the perfume of spring is indescribable!!
The song birds are also now showing up at The Jeffers Inn feeders.
Grosbeaks, House Finches, Western Tanagers, Goldfinches, Robins, Waxwings, Doves, Chickadees, Tree Swallows, Magpies, Sparrows, Orioles, Warblers, Lazuli Buntings, Blue Jays and Grackles are all eating over six pounds of seed per day!! It's quite a show. No Hummingbirds yet ... they will visit later this summer.
To us at The Jeffers Inn there is no greater joy than sitting on the patio and watching the birds.
The quiet setting, the birds going about their day and a Montana Spring blooming all around you!!
