This N That


The weather has been nice , all though yesterday was chilly but at least the sun has been shining .  I have been weeding after all the rain we had at the beginning of the week and over the nights it has been dewy  . I also have been busy moving things around in my gardens mainly wild ferns  as a lot of them would of shaded to many of my plants so I moved them and even potted some up , they are a  plant that spreads it’s seeds well  , then I was keeping my Lilly of the valley under control as they spread like crazy , other then this I have been just enjoying the sunny days , going for walks with my Miggs , taking photos and taking in all the nature and colour that has returned !

  I like photographing fungi , with its many different forms and textures and how they can cascade  down a log or rock like a water fall , or stick out the side of a tree !

                      So my week has been full of This N That  and  today, Miggs and I will go for our usual morning walk and then I will  be edge trimming as Papa cut the grass yesterday evening , it is already sunny and warming up out side and it is only 7am . I love getting up early  and watching the sun rise and hearing all the birdies singing  and watching them at the feeders as I have my morning tea out on the patio .


                                                                              Until next time my friends !

Beautiful photos of nature in your own backyard! It's neat to see the oriole's nest. They are rare birds around here. I like your new solar lamps. Hopefully it will warm up for the weekend and we'll all get some sunshine. Have a great weekend!

We've been using more solar lights this year, just fitted 2 by the garage planters. It's a drippy, damp, rainy day today ... sometimes this is the best lighting to get photos.

I like your solar lamps!
There'll be plenty of sun this weekend to get them charged.
Have a lovely weekend.

Hi Elaine, the bird that you call Charlie, is he a downy woodpecker? We have the pilated, and the little downies...but I haven't seen this one before.
