That's what it has been like here for me this week , puttering and busy with daily routines and keeping up with gardening , weeding more like and yard work , the weather has been sunny cool and breezy perfect for it all . We were supposed to have thunderstorms last night and heavy rains but looks like once again it drifted off to the north of us and to the east , we get missed a lot down here by rain and thunderstorms , one would think we would get more thunderstorms as we are close to Lake Erie but nope not so , Oh well looks like the hose will have to do for now for my gardens .
The yard is buzzing with busy activity buy chipmunks , squirrels and lots of birds and of course Miggs keeping an eye on them all .
On our way back one morning from our walk I just had to pick these wild Daisies to bring in the house and I set them in my mums old vase .
I do love Daisies of all types but the original daisy is my favorite . Speaking of Daisy I planted a Shasta Daisy bush in memory of my sister as she to loved Daisies in my center garden and it is doing well will be blooming fairly soon .
Miggs was pooped by the time we got home after an hour and a half walk , poor dog lol !
One of my Delphiniums in the butterfly garden is doing well this year in it’s second year , such pretty flowers for hummers but I haven't seen very many hummers here this year at all , hope their not declining like the Monarchs did and still are a bit.
Yes Miggs the camera will be on you in a few minuets Mama is taking photos of other things right now . This is what she does when the camera is not on her she rolls about and groan's to get my attention .
See again Daises lol English Daises that have been spreading and blooming since last year and yes even during our oh don't want to say the W word here goes Winter , YIKES !! don't want to know or hear that word for some time now do we ? hush nope !
Our row of Japanese Willows have been soo pretty ever year , we have about 10 of them all in a row at the top of our front hill by Papa’s work shop . They need to be trimmed and tidied up soon . Papa does that with the electric edger or trimmer .
More Daisy like flowers , these are one of my Alpine Asters plants , I snipped a few and put them in my little vase with my wild daisies in the house they are all soo pretty .
I heard this lovely Song Sparrow just outside the window when I was putting these daises in the vase . He sang so loud and proud for such a tinny bird .
As I was outside again taking this pretty birds photo I noticed a Robin one of the many we have in our yard going up into our big old tree with grass and mud in her beak .
Well hello there I said to her , so this is where your house is this year , she ignored me but after I took her photo she leaned her head forward out of her nest and looked at me as if to say “ ok ok ya found me now leave me be please “! ok Mrs Robin I will be off now I said to her . Yes , I talk to the animals lol !
The Irises are doing well on our little hill in the front to they are kind of in a wild state with grasses the old tree stump and the many Sumacs we have in this untamed area .
Miggs , always with me when I garden or go about taking photos , right now she is watching the neighbor's cat across the road lol !
As the sun was slowly setting this little baby bunny appeared from under the cedar hedges , He didn't want me to close so I had to stay my distance .
Yesterday I had asked Papa to stop off at the garden center as I wanted a pretty hanging planter for the back patio as I had not wanted one before but changed my mind , he knows what flowers I like in my hanging planters so he picked these two beauties up .
Supertunias from PW – Proven Winners my favorite company for flowers .
And Wave Petunia's . Thanks Papa .
Well that's it for me . Time to go out side and take more photos , build things and well … just enjoy !!!
Hoping for some rain today .
Until next time .
