Many bird houses and bird feeders have a place in my yard. I thought this one with the string hanging out was cute. Can you image that little tiny bird flying and carrying that in it's beak. It's a wonder the bird's flight pattern was screwed up with that string floating behind.
The pink dogwood tree is beginning to flower.
So is the white dogwood tree.
A week or so ago while in the garden bath I could hear a returning hummingbird looking for last year's window feeder. Oops, I hadn't put the feeders out yet....until right after I heard the humming. It is such fun to hear the hummingbirds come to this feeder as it's like the glass picks up the vibrations of the wings and it resonates inside the bathroom. There is another feeder at my fish pond right now and later there will be another. You can see the Bleeding Hearts in the background just before my boy Ben's backyard.
An aromatic lilac bush blooming. Must learn about how to trim it back at the best time so it will fill out and be more prolific next year. Sadly I am not so smart about proper trimming time of year and how much to trim. Sure don't want to kill anything so sometimes the limbs get long and lanky.
My pretty Bleeding Hearts. Thankfully they are in the afternoon shade but when it gets warmer those blooms will be gone too.
Periwinkle (aka vinca minor) near a full bloom.
Oh dear, I've forgotten the name of this ground cover; it will probably come back to me as soon as I publish the blog.It is sunny today but getting damp now as we are expecting rain. Time to take my boy for his walk to be sure he and I get in our steps before that happens.
Have a great evening and let's all be kind to one another.
