It's Thursday....and like #25 is here....

Greetings from the Garden!!!

How are things in your world?  We are fine here and busy with the usual spring work.  Today is our "I like Thursday posts" sponsored by LeeAnna at "Not Afraid of Color."    

Head on over to her blog to visit a variety of happy blogs :)

In case you didn't realize it, we live in a tiny house and have a small yard that well....has a lot of flower beds.  We only grow a little grass out front and mostly that is just a pathway.  So I haven't had any place to add plants but this year, Mr. 3P&N is building a vertical garden for us.  I'll probably use it to grow herbs.  It's keeping the mister busy while he is home and I'll be glad for the growing area.  Photos will follow whenever he is done.

Blooming this week...

 Delicate colored tulips, 
I have no idea where these came from but I love them!
 Be still my bleeding hearts.
And here is lovely lungwort with a happy be clinging to it.
I really like gardening (in case you couldn't tell) and moving plants, creating new borders and in general just changing things around is always a lot fun.  New bed created this week:
I like visitors in the garden, I'm still not sure what bird this is, but he sure did scold me on Sunday as I was weeding.


 

 Then I realized that there are now two nests in the willow tree.
Here's the clearest photo of the closest one:

I like how animals communicate.  It sometimes astounds me.
 Early this spring a sparrow was hoping around me as I gardened and he too was scolding me (or maybe it was she, hard to tell).  Finally it ended on the base of the bird bath.  I got the hint, brought out the bath basin, and filled the bath.
And peace reigned once more...

Here is my new bird bath that I fell in love with at (of all things) the grocery store.  I just put this one up on Sunday:

 And we still seem to have the cat highway going through our property.  I took this photo from inside our kitchen at the latest interloper.  He knows where the bird bath is...but the birds know when he/she is nearby.
I hope you are having a wonderful spring!

Your garden is looking lovely! Those tulips are great. The deer always get to mine right before they open.

Tulips and bleeding hearts. Love those. We have so much water around here, no one visits our bird bath. Maybe in our next place...

What pretty photos of your flowers and yard! I love that birdbath, too! We have so much fun watching the birds in ours. Looks like you have a wonderful green thumb!

Oh your garden is so lovely!! The tulips are fabulous - we have [or HAD] yellow ones, orange ones, and who knows what else - the deer eat them faster than they grow. How funny about that bird scolding you - you need to keep up with your landlord responsibilities, lol!!!!

What wonderful garden likes! Beautiful photos and so much bloom already. I like puttering around too but I don't really know what I'm doing! Your garden looks wonderful and I will be interested to see how the vertical comes along. Happy Weekend.

Bossy little sparrow knew exactly what (s)he wanted, lol! The gardens are looking lovely - our spring has definitely arrived and we're still in the furnace on/furnace off stage :D My rhubarb plants are doing well, my peony is coming up nicely, and I can see my late brother's lilies poking through the dirt in the front :D We only have small little garden areas as we don't really enjoy gardening, but I'm always the most excited about Brian's lilies coming up :)

Only 2 more days before your girl comes! I know she's going to be a happy in her forever home, and much loved - I can't wait to see pix :)

That new bird bath is so pretty. I love your garden, by the way. Now that Scout is there, the cats may find another path through the neighborhood.
