After three hours of weeding, I sat down next to the garden today. I had my solar-charged radio and my camera close by.
The veggie garden is coming along.
Those are potatoes growing in bags at the end of the rows.
Other than sipping on a hot cup of tea, I stayed very still and waited to see who would come by for a visit. Within a minute, I had two beautiful goldfinch fly up to the bird-bath for a nice, cool drink and a splash about. They are so adorable.
Next was a little nut-hatch; quickly grabbing a few seeds and then flying back to the little red riding hood woodlot.
A chipmunk scurried by; too quick for my camera.
My little mama wren in the white bird house was inside the whole time and only peaked out a few times to watch me; most likely worried I was getting too close. She is now sitting on her nest most of the day and night so I presume she has laid all her eggs. She's.so.darn.cute. :)
My perennial garden was full of weeds and now it looks well pampered. And, I added some new mushroom compost to give it a lift as the plants begin to bloom.
I'm never without company around here. No sooner was I getting ready to come inside, I heard a rustling in the grass and David popped up, dropped to the ground and presented his belly for a rub. Which he got, of course.
Who could resist that?
Then I pointed him in the direction of his house
and he went home for dinner.
