Veggies, Kitty, Birds and Nieces
I had planned to grow a lot more veggies this year, but got off to a bad start... "oh well there is always next year...
I do have a few Beans, Peppers, Tomato's, and a few Cucumbers that I'm relying on, so I won't complain to much.
A cute little sunflower planted by accident by one of those birds eating from my bird feeder.
Below: Early girl tomato's, bush beans, green pepper and one little cucumber.
Below: My nieces proudly follow in their Auntie Vetsy's foot steps. I keep a garden Journal and they mimic me with their drawings and garden notes. They have also planted strawberries and potted sunflowers, the sunflowers have not completely matured as of yet.
Below: a few Zinnia's in bloom
Below: an update on my Cardinal Family.... My Cardinals were not
successful with their second nest in the Wiegela shrub. here's the link to this story if you are reading it for the first time... http://vetsysview.blogspot.com/2010/06/cardinals-mate-for-life-and-between.html
Below: during this same month, last month ...Panini watched mama cardinal in her nest in the Wiegela shrub that is right outside the window...It would always amaze and puzzle me.. when mama cardinal would nest and come back to it.. with Panini staring right at her from the window....
I assume that she was smart enough to know that Panini could not get out.
I stated that Mama cardinal was not successful in her attempt to bring a second baby brood to term in the second nest site. Below: " If you were a Mother bird... do you think you could bring a baby brood to term with a face like this one staring at you!
Anywho... " I felt a little lonely after my Cardinals moved on... but they have been replaced by new sites and sounds of birds in my yard... My beautiful Gold finches are back and I hope to capture better and more vivid photos of them later on... My Chickadees are...Chic-a dee-dee- deeing in the trees and bushes as they hunt for bugs... but have not yet.. checked out their New Dinette I made for them..
Just a little update, scenes and thoughts from my garden. Thank you for visiting my blog.. Do leave a comment.... I love hearing from you..
