Yup I have been enjoying these wonderful sunny days in the gardens, doing yard work going for walks with my Miggs and just sitting back relaxing and taking it all in . I have been enjoying taking lots of photos of flowers , birds , bees and critters as there is a lot of activity going on in the yard these days .
Papa built this bird house that he hung off of his wood working shop a while back all the other bird houses like this only in different colours are being occupied by Sparrows all though these are meant for Wrens but the sparrows just peck at the entrance to make them just that much bigger for them to squeeze in and out of but this house wasn't touched by the Sparrows and Mrs Wren seems to think it is quite the perfect place for her , so she is moving in .
Seems to be quite the task for her to figure out how to get a big stick into that tiny hole . I felt like I should of taken it and put it in for her lol !
After some time of struggling and figuring this stick out Molly as we have named her got it in and of she went to collect more . She sits on Papas work shop roof and any perching areas she can around her new home and sings and trills so pretty !
In the field beside us there is a huge trailing plant with all these pretty flowers on it .
The sun has been shining and breezes have been cool , very little rain to but hoping for some today and tomorrow as we are to be getting thunderstorms we hope that last batch of thunderstorms didn't happen even though there were lots of dark clouds traveling over us !
Alvin seems to enjoy this feeder with the safflower seed in it and also likes to go for a bit of a swing as he is feasting .
Mr Sparrow has been busy chirping as he try's to entice the ladies to his pad , another one of Papa’s bird houses he built this little guy has been in that house since April .
Mr Cardinal also loves to feast on the safflower seed and have a little swing swong .
The butterfly , bee and hummer garden has been buzzing mostly with bees , haven't been to many butterfly's stopping as of yet and hummers have been far and few between this year so far !
Still a few to bloom but coming along well in the butterfly , hummer and bee garden .
When the hummers decide to feed they don't mind sharing their feeders with the Oriel's at all and vise a versa .
So as you see , the gardens and yard have been busy and so have we enjoying them all and keeping it all in tip top shape for all our birds , butterflies , critter and bee friends and for us to enjoy to . The rest of the gardens are doing well also everything is blooming and thickening up and the yard is busy and full of lovey sound to .
I apologize that I haven't been here much reading your blogs as I have been out soaking up all this beauty till sun set and even after as it stays light till 10pm . I will try to catch up with you all soon .
I do however appreciate all of you who take the time out of your busy days to pop by read through my blog and leave a comment . Thank you all !
Until next time
