Garden Delights

More Grows in the Garden than the Gardener Sows.
~ old spanish proverb

There is a little speck on top of this birdhouse........

It is a bird, not sure what kind. Do you know? Wish that I had the digi camera. The camera on my blackberry doesn't zoom as good as I needed for this shot....She disappeared inside the chimney!

Well hello in there! 3 sweet babies! I took my digi camera back a couple of days later, but the nest was empty!

Have a great weekend!

The true adventurer goes forth aimless and uncalculating to meet and greet unknown fate.
~O. Henry

Hope you had a great weekend. We were super busy. Friday night we had a date and went to the movie and dinner! Fantastic fun!

Saturday morning we decided to go to one of our favorite fishing destinations. I was hoping to catch a bunch of blue crabs, I'm just not patient enough to fish, lately!!! We had a great time. The moon was full, we made a campfire and cooked outside. The man grilled chicken breasts and baked sweet potatos, we had wine and french bread to complete the meal! It was yummy!

We didn't get in until late last night, so I'll have to download my pics this afternoon and show you later.

I've been gathering supplies for a few projects. Hope to get started this week. I'll show you soon!

The Garden Path

"Won't you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you."
~ Richard B Sheridan 1751-1816

This Make Mine Pink Friday we are celebrating our garden paths! If you have ever looked at my blog before you know that I love my flower's something that I enjoy very much. I have stepping stones for paths and a few rock walls that border the beds. It is in constant change and I love the surprises.
And from one day to the next... you never know what you will find.
I aged this little angel to put into the garden and love it so much!If you want an angel of your very own, you can find it here.

The Sunflowers brought so much joy! Now they are feeding the birds! We have lots of birdfeeders for your garden; hope you find one that suits you and your guests! If you'd like a birdhouse we have those, too!
I'm thinking that these birdfeeders that I made in the spring were just the perfect size to get the birds interested in dining here!

Our fountains will make a beautiful addition to any garden.

Wishing you a great Pink Friday!

All my best...

Lovely July......with the evocative murmur of honey bees on the wing and the smell of sun tan cream.
~Cynthia Wickham

Can you believe that today is the first day of July? This year is going by too fast! We are making plans for a B-B-Q with the family for the 4th! Looking forward to the good food....and then going fishing Saturday! Should be a great weekend.

Did you have a chance to try the oatmeal raisin cookies? They are vanishing fast over here!

What are your plans for this holiday weekend?
