With overcast skies it was a perfect
time to catch some photos of my garden
today and share springtime:
a consistent springtime. We had two
nights a week ago that we had a freeze
and that was not nice for us garden lovers.
it will be our 6th summer in Missouri.
I am learning that once a garden
is established, there are always
things to share with others or
else it gets overrun. I can't imagine
a selfish person having a garden as
it would become a jungle for sure.
Yesterday I started potting things for
our Daughter in Law. She just
received her Doctorate and they
are moving here in town so she will be needing
flowers for a new garden. I am
very happy that she was hired at the
University of Missouri so they
won't be moving away.
The birdhouses have sparrows.
The bluebirds checked some of
our birdhouses out but wouldn't
take them. All my Beatrix Potter
statuary has faired well this winter
since my husband and I covered
them this time. I have my replacement
bird bath too for the one that cracked
from not being covered 2 winters ago.
and I have exciting news.
I just had my very first
hummingbird for the season!
