I love the garden at this time of year, so many shades of green (my favourite colour) and growth happens almost as you are watching. And just like that the weather is gorgeous.
I love peeking around the garden with my camera and capturing what is happening with the birds, the critters, and the plants.
Peeking into the robin nest to see two eggs in the baker’s rack nest on May 6, 2023.
And then again on May 12, 2023 to see one egg has hatched. The photos aren’t the clearest as I have to be quick taking the photos while the robin is off the nest for a few minutes.
Peek a boo … I see you! The grosbeaks returned on May 11, 2023.
Lovely to see them return to the garden.
I think that Chippy was peeking at me from the tall grass.
The orioles are back enjoying the feeder and we enjoy their lovely song.
And then the hummer came along, kept his back to the camera, didn’t even peek at me, and enjoyed the oriole feeder too.
Check out Saturday’s Critters and see lots more wonderful wildlife photos.
Find a yummy recipe to cook.
How about a delicious chocolate chip cookie while you watch and listen to the birds in the garden?
I haven’t done a lot of stitching this week, as I’ve spent as much time as possible in the garden. I did get the lazy daisy on the flowers done, and started the outline on the house. The stitch along has finished so I will need to catch up. There is so much to do in the garden at this time of the year but hopefully next week will give me time to sit and stitch in the gazebo.
I get lots of inspiration from other stitchers at Slow Sunday Stitching and appreciate all the visits and comments from there. Visit them and gather some inspiration for yourself.
The hosta have gone from just poking through the ground to ready to unfurl the leaves on the Big Blue variety by the shed.
The ferns have gone from fiddleheads to fronds in just a few days.
Wild columbine are lush and just about ready to bloom.
Bleeding hearts are putting on a lovely show. The new header this week shows the lilacs that are out in bloom. So fragrant when you step out onto the deck.
I hope the weather has been lovely for you this week if you are in a part of the world moving into spring. Thanks for visiting. Comments are most appreciated, don’t forget to let me know where you live.
