Over The Weekend

 

 

Papa and I were busy over this Mothers day weekend . We were both out gardening and Papa built a new garden edging for me for around our big tree as the edging of logs we had were all rotten and falling apart .

                                                                    I  helped him as well and took a few photos  .

A picket fence with fake bird houses on to spruce it up . I love it  . I will be painting the top half of the bird house pickets all different colours  , one white with a yellow roof , one blue with a red roof and so on .

Then Papa looked at the old trellis there and thought it needs a new stronger one for our Clematis as it grows huge and gets heavy so he built that and attached it to the tree .

And there we have it the cutest garden edging we have in our yard . We had a trailer of top soil and filled up this garden and some of our other gardens ,  I will be putting shade plants in this new garden  in the next week or two when I go to get more perennials at my favorite garden center .

When we took a break from this  garden building I heard a familiar sound up in our birch tree  . It was our little Yellow Warbler .

                                       He was bouncing all about feasting on the cattail seeds of the birch tree .

Then I got back to work with the top soil and gardening , I  am happy to say all of our spring and summer birds are back now  including our hummers  and the trees , bushes and flowers are all blooming . I have put my Geraniums out side now hanging  on the front porch .

Update on my sister  Ann who is still in a coma , the Dr's don't understand why , she should of been out of it by now , they had a neurologist do tests  and found there was pressure on her brain so they now have released that and  we are in the waiting and hoping stages still . I just hope that if all this works and she comes out of the coma that all this doesn't leave her with major disabilities and damage  as she wouldn't want that . It has been a long bumpy road for us all  .

                                                                            Until next time .

That is the cutest picket fence around your garden. It will be lovely seeing it all painted. We spotted a warbler in the back tree too, but couldn't get a photo of it. Continued good thoughts for Ann and all your family and lets hope that the latest release of pressure helps her come out of the coma.

My thoughts are with you and your sister, Elaine. I have to say that is the cutest darn fence I have ever seen. :)

Papa's work looks lovely. I have never seen such a pretty wooden edging. Looks like Miggs thinks so too. I am so sorry about your sister. I will keep her in my thoughts.

Great job around the tree. I see Miggs was supervising, so that's why it looks so wonderful.

I love that little picket fence! Your husband did a beautiful job making it. How sweet to see the yellow warbler. That is one I've never seen before. I pray your sister will wake up from her coma whole. Thinking of you and your family. This is a rough road for you all. Blessings. Pam

A very rough road to see a sibling like this. The picket fence looks lovely!

I like that little birdhouse garden with the picket fence.
All the best to the family and sister.
