What's in Your Backyard?

Jack Bunny stops in
every day for a piece
of bread.  He’s become
comfortable with us
and we can now get
within a couple of feet
of him.  

I told my husband that I’ve
seen TWO bunnies at ONE
time ~ you know what that
means … time will tell.

And check out this
little Siskin
testing its wings!

We Got Rain!

Humming in the rain
I’m humming in the rain;
What a glorious feeling
I’m humming in the rain!

We have been very blessed 
in our area to still have enough
 rain to keep the gardens growing. 

 The squash and peppers are doing well 
and the beans are now blossoming.
I had to plant twice to get things going;
as we had a hard frost then extreme
heat during germination of the seeds.

The dill is way ahead of the cucumbers 
... oh well ...
we'll take what we can get! 

I can't wait until the cucumbers 
start to climb the trellis. 
Although they look healthy 
the cukes are still hidden 
under those beautiful squash. 

If I were a fairy 
I'd set up housekeeping 
under this squash plant! 

This is the geranium 
that I kept alive throughout 
the winter.

 Mrs. T found a Mrs. Tea
and being the good shopper that she is
she just had to go online and check 
out what a great deal she got
Now hold on to your knickers folks;
would anyone really pay 
$174.95 + shipping 
for a teapot?? 

Not Mrs. T
she snagged it for 
only $5.00. 
That's right, five bucks!
Is she a shopper or what?

I made a crystal fairy garden 
with baubles, glass chess pieces, 
little trinkets etc. 
then I went into my photo program
& made the sweetest fairies out of 
pictures of my grand-loves.
I laminated them and added little
sticks on the back to place them. 
In one of our rock gardens 
I added Grandma & Grandpa 
cuddling on a bench. 
So when the grand-loves came for 
the weekend they could play with
the figures, including going to 
visit Grandma and Grandpa
in their garden in a land 
far, far away 
just like in real life.
