The crows look very picturesque in the framework of branches. I hadn't heard the sticky willie name for cleavers, mine are not that advanced so I need to go pick some to dry for tea. The larch cone looks cute with all the spikes of leaves. So much nice Spring green!

Crows are very special, don't you think? Mystical and sinister and interesting. I love watching them and wondering about their ways and 'thinking'!

The crows are very handsome birds. I love all your flowers. We've had a cold week and spring is taking a pause. Enjoy your weekend, Ruby!

Great crow shots! Our dog used to think it his responsibility to keep crows out of our air space. Lol

Poppy said...

Flora and fauna and drama in your parts! The black crow is a serious observer among all the sweet and charming new life around it.

Have a lovely week.

Visiting via Mosaic Monday,

Although not a nice description for carrion crows, they are a much needed part of nature.
Sticky willy...I had never heard of this until I tried to identify something I pulled out in my garden bed several years back. The vine swung up and stuck to the side of my face. I had the red, skin burned outline of 5 petals there for a couple of weeks. :-)
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

A wonderful trip through your woodland...

The crows are amazing birds. I have seen them in France but we don't have them in New Zealand.
Our version is the Magpie and they can be particularly vicious when protecting their nest - they divebomb and peck peoples heads.....
Oh that luscious green that only Spring can produce - enjoy it before it fades!
Nature is encredible, the older I get the more I appreciate it!

We have a lot of really big crows or ravens here in Florida. They are loud, aren't they? I love seeing everything green up in Spring colors! Enjoy your week! Hugs!

Mary Cromer said...

Those smart, smart lovely Crows and the flowers, all so beautiful~

What a lovely variety of green and other colors. Spring is so pretty!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Lots of healthy green growth budding out in your corner of the world! Love those shining black crow eyes--they look so intelligent.

stardust said...

What charming crows! Especially the one in the first photo has such gentle eyes and looks composed and relaxed, perhaps because of the shooting of the new leaves? I like all the nature you captured, Ruby. Have happy spring ahead.
