How Does Your Garden Grow?

 

Door sign for May


Passing of the daffodils


Somebunny or Timex (chipmunk)  planted this green thing. A sunflower perhaps?


Cardinal whirligig


Forget-me-nots


Common Bugle


Solar fairy lights


In the tangle, Mama feeds the babies!


while Dad keeps an eye out


Like Horatius at the gate

How does your garden grow?

  1. Your garden is looking good. Great that the cardinals are doing well. My balcony still looks awful! Valerie

    1. It was exciting to see Mama feed the babies. The first time I noticed her doing that was on Friday. I can't see the babies as the nest is very deep and well hidden in the honeysuckle vine.

  3. Things are greening up nicely as my grandmother used to say. It all looks lovely. I adore your fairy lights along the walk....you just need more on the other side...IMHO.....lol. One can never have enough fairy lights! :D

    1. I told Himself he needed a string of lights on the other side of the walk! Then it would look like a landing strip for the fairies. Fairies is also our euphemism for packages delivered as sometimes the packages just magically show up. Look! You got a fairy! 😺

  4. I saw the male cardinal in both shots but don't see the mother cardinal at all. Yes, I enlarged the photo, too. Your garden is looking much better than mine, and that Cardinal whirligig is darling, as are the fairy lights.

    1. It's really hard to get a clear shot of Mama through the window. She blends in so well with the leaves and if she's in the nest she hunkers way down so all you might catch a glimpse of is her orange beak.

    1. The fairy lights are fun and pretty. They also have been coming on later!

  7. Your daffs are looking great in that fantastic cluster. And isn't it wonderful to see spring greening up. All is looking good. You must be excited as the days get longer...although those fairy lights won't come on until later-that is probably OK. Hope you had a great Mother's Day.

    1. They don't come on until late, but are still glowing before dawn! How do I know? Himself is a very early riser

  8. Like your door sign. We have our cows out all year long. I´m still impressed no one took them!
    And ohhhhh, your fairy lights!!!!
    I´ll wait till frost came and went before starting anything, but saw yesterday (it was HOT!) my strawberries survived and bloom!

    1. Himself will put up another strand of fairy lights on the other side of the walk. He bought more stakes
