Around the Garden
Hello my friends, I hope your week has been going well.
We have been blessed with very mild and warm daytime temperatures so I have been enjoying some time in my little garden.
I think these little birds seem to be enjoying the sunshine too, don't you?
It's so wonderful to see new growth already!
This is where I sometimes sit and read blogs or just enjoy listening to the birds and my fountain.
The ivy is happiest in this weather too. I really have to protect this plant from the triple digit heat & sun in the summertime. It's little green leaves will turn brown and crispy from the heat. So far though, it's been around each year, so it makes it through the summers somehow! I'm not sure I'll even make it through another hot summer here! :-)
The roses are happy.
It's still a little cold to sit outside at night, unless it's around a fire, but I do enjoy the lighting at night.
This nest is in the tree across the street from my house.
I took our ladder over and was up pretty high to get this. I wish I could see inside of it, but maybe I'll try it again another day when I can have someone hold the ladder. :-)
I do hope the birds will come back and use this nest again soon.
I've been enjoying some time in my craft room too, so I'll have to come back soon and show you what I've been up to.
For now, I hope you've enjoyed your visit around my garden, and for those of you in "real" winter climates be safe and stay warm my friends!
