Bit Of This & That


Friday was Papa’s b-day  and he said thanks so much  to all for leaving him birthday wishes in the comments . We didn't do much just puttered and enjoyed  the weather even though it has been hot . I made him his favourite home made cake  , vanilla blueberry . 

Today pretty much the same lol we are home bodies and enjoy our  home , gardens and nature that's around us very much .

These are photos  from around our yard I took the other day but never got around to posting them till now.


    I love Geraniums especially this salmon colour . I like to have them in hanging planters on our front porch .





                                                Wave Petunia's hanging from my potting shed !


                                      Papa’s Foxglove in our back garden !


                                             Sharing lunch by the big old tree !


            A  Cedar Waxwing in our tree, there is another one with his back to me to the far right !


           This little Wren has moved into our back garden bird house ! We call her Molly she is tiny but WOW ! what a beautiful song and trill she has .


    We have lots of these Purple Finch here as well as Gold Finch that are nesting now so we don't see them as much right now !

  Papa and I just love the nature that's here at the Cove and enjoy watching and hearing it every day !We also love and enjoy our gardens and all the colours to . 

                                    Until next time hope you all have a great weekend !

Oh your flowers are so beautiful. I am sure missing flowers as I really don't have much here in hot and dry Arizona. I'm going to check into the flowering cactus. In the meantime, I'm sure enjoying yours.
