The blue-jays were enjoying some sun-flower seeds this morning.
The mourning doves, nut-hatch, wren and sparrows are back at the feeders. And, of course,the entertaining black crows.
There's no sign of the chickadees or the cardinals lately, but as many of you mentioned, they are probably
somewhere sitting on nests. I look forward to seeing the young ones soon.
We have found a fella that would love all the steel and metal that has piled up at the back of the property. Most of it is from the old coop.
Once it is removed we can prepare the ground for some perennials.
I discovered some rhubarb along our fence.
And the peonies are almost open.
It's exciting waiting to see what will bloom next.
It's been a busy weekend and today we celebrated my grandittle, Riley's, 5th birthday.
With a personalized garden box, thanks to the retired-guy, I started a fairy garden for the birthday girl.
The box was filled with sand and a few tiny plants.
And, of course, some fairies.
The box filled with sand, some jewels for making pathways and a few rocks from the property completed my contribution.
It's something Nana started and Rileycan add to it as she pleases.
She loved her own personalized fairy garden. She immediately added a blossom from her backyard tree. Then she pulled the pedals off a dandelion and sprinkled them over the fairies. "Look...it's fairy-dust." she said. Since I forgot to get a photo of her with it, I'll have to drop over to see how it is coming along with the help of her delightful imagination.
It's a long weekend in Canada.
The weather has been fabulous; warm and sunny.
Better enjoy every minute of it.
Have a good one.
