Busy, But Not !


Have you ever had one of those weeks where your busy but not busy?  Any who I have  and before I new it  it’s Friday already WOW ! were does the time and days go lol !

Well my busy moments were being in the gardens  dead heading , weeding ,  going for walks and catching toads from the lawn and releasing them into my back garden  ,we have a lot of toads around this year and so far I have 4 in my back garden .  One thing we don't have a lot of this year are Hummers and again Monarchs  a sad thing not to see many at all here !  Oh and squirrel rescue !!

All my flowers are now starting to spread , plump up and bloom more ! It has been a late season due to the long nasty winter we had but all is doing well  now and catching up !

       We have had some dewy mornings as you can see on top of the lantern the wet glittering in the early morning sun  and that helps the gardens a lot as the day gets heated up now !

Mrs Robin with a beak full of lunch for her baby that was in our big tree , she was trying to entice him to come to her as she chirped with a muffled chirp  calling him down !

                                       He didn’t budge so she ended up going to him in the  thickness of the tree !

Miggs , well Miggs has been on squirrel alert as we have a few new ones around , babies that is and they are learning how to run fast and dodge her .. except for one the other day  a black one he dodged the wrong way and she caught it . I had to yell at her to leave it and to get away as I wasn’t quite sure what she would do with it …well I had a feeling in the back of my mind always that if she did catch one she would roll it around a bit and lick it hoping she doesn’t shake it to death like her toys . Well she did roll the poor thing about a bit no blood or bits of any kind but she did give him the bath of his life , poor little thing was soaked to the bone and when I finally got  her away from him , he was tuckered out and barley moved  breathing very fast with the look in his eyes as if to say “what the heck just happened” , then he got up stumbled off to the big tree and rested some more there , needless to say I haven’t seen him around since . Now we have a cute little grey one who is quite a cutie  and is learning the yard rules from Miggs fast lol ! and can dodge her pretty good for now !

So busy ? yes ! interesting I must say the least but there has been time to slow down take photos and enjoy it all !

Those are some beautiful flowers. I haven't had many hummers either.

I think you are busy enjoying the season right now, and I'm glad that those cute little squirrels get to do more of it too! Your garden really lovely!!

We could do with Miggs on squirrel patrol here, as we seem to have a family of them digging holes in the lawn and all over the place, I don't mind them being there, but I do mind the holes! Your flowers are all beautiful, it certainly seems as if your garden is making up for lost time well. That is probably why you are so busy, trying to keep up with it all! xx

Such a fun post! You have so many beautiful flowers. They did start late, didn't they? But they're all taking off now and it's such a joy to see. Toads are fantastic to have in the garden!

Oh dear, the poor squirrels had better watch out for Miggs. Too funny. Your flowers are beautiful. I haven't seen a hummingbird here for a few days. They were coming and now they've gone. :( I'm hoping their just nesting. It's such a busy time of year and the days are flying by. Now it's officially summer! Wow. Do enjoy!

The flowers are BEAUTIFUL! Sure enjoyed them ~ silly Miggs ~ she just wanted to play. Our large, Kodi, did that with a couple of nests of baby bunnies - I don't think they were very lucky either.
