A Saturday without rain!

Today is beautiful.
First day in a while with no rain.
It is a little sticky out but I'll take it!
A few photos to update you..

I was admiring my Hosta...ready to bloom and I noticed we have aphids!
Gotta take care of that!
The Goldfish in my Pond are very happy...My Pond Lily will bloom soon...

My husband made another box for our garden.
The strawberries that survived last years deer attack need a place to live!

A little wild columbine blooming in my yard...I just love them!

Mama-Eastern Phoebe Flycatcher was not happy with me today-
she has a nest above my mothers gutter and I wanted to photograph her
baby. She dove after me and tried to nail me in the head.
What a good Mommy she is.
I managed to get a poor shot of her baby! Better than nothing!

Your yard and garden are lovely, bright spots. Thanks for sharing them with us. Have a wonderful day.

Hi Susan, me again. About the mint this time. If you have a problem in the garden, start it and keep it in a pot - increasing the size of the pot as required. Chances are your mint got too much sun and too much water. I love pots because I can move them to a spot where the conditions for them to grow are optimal. Once mint is started it is a weed and will not give up easily, believe me.

Hi Susan! What pretty pictures.

I have a robin whose domain seems to be the cottonwood tree to the side of my garden.

He's not very happy with me either... I've been spending quite a bit of time in my garden and see him flying lowly over head... often..

I do love it when he gets way up top of the cottonwood tree and sings his heart out, though!
