Our Garden on Wednesday


The warmer days are here at last!  We were a bit worried because of some cool, windy days earlier.  Feels like summer.

Mindy
This plush, soft, throw is across the end of the bed I like to sleep on.   It was a gift and if you are a Dr. Who fan, you will recognize the phone box theme. It has become my favorite nap spot.

Mike
I am frequently on the kitchen counter top.  It is especially important to snoopervise preparation of our meals.  I even offer to help out.

Oh, yes, we would like to show you some of the flowers in our garden.
 This is a honeysuckle bush in bloom.  The bees like these blooms.

....and these flowers plant themselves here and there wherever they please.
Our mom'bean' calls them columbine

A couple of years ago we put up a birdhouse
...and finally we have tenants!  A family of chickadees.  Looks like it needs a new paint job though.

Other birds come into our garden as well
The yellow bird is a goldfinch

A purple finch is at the feeder now.
if you look on the left, you can see a bird in flight, attempting a landing on the other side.

What else can we show you?
Oh yes, our birdbath.  It seems to be used by the birds for drinking water.

There you have it, hope you enjoyed the garden tour!

Have a great day,
purrs from Mindy & Mike

You have such a lovely garden! Lots to entertain you, and if only some of those birds could come in and introduce themselves. :-)

We heard from our human's mom that it's hot for you guys now. First "grandma" was complaining it was so cold for July, last night she was complaining it was too hot in her apartment. LOL.

Those are beautiful garden photos. Every kitchen needs a kitty snoopervisor. And yup, we recognized that blanket immediately! Thank you for visiting us and your kindness for our Domino. Hugs to you all.

The birds in your garden seem to have a good life. Houses for shelter, a bar and an own restaurant. And even wonderfull flowers for dekoration.
I love the honeysuckle.
