A Little Iris Color

Recently I was over at my mil's home and noticed how pretty her iris's were. Mine haven't even budded yet. So I decided to snap a few pics.I don't know the names of any of them but they actually came from my yard in Atlanta. She had dug some up on a visit there.These were given to me by a patient from where I use to work. I don't think this one was mine but I still think hand me down plants are the best!

Hope everyone has a great day and happening gardening!

I love to watch and feed the birds as I think most gardeners do. Recently I was at my mil's home and noticed her little birds.Tried as they may they couldn't figure out how to get into this little bird house. They finally gave up the idea.This ring neck dove is fairly new to our area. They are a lighter gray than our mourning doves. He was checking us out from the pine tree.My mil has this small feeder that the little ones seem to enjoy. She simply fills the jar and they eat the seed in the holes.Like this as you can see. Well one evening I happened to look out the window and low and behold one had gone thru the feeder hole and was sitting in the jar. Sorry no pic but it was so funny. He was just sitting there watching his little friends feed. Poor thing didn't even seem to realize he had a problem. Luckily DH was there and he went out and twisted the jar off and out the little one flew. So far, we haven't seen anymore venture in.

So until next time ya'll, enjoy your birds. They provide constant, free entertainment!

Or Maybe Blue is Better

Pink isn't bad but how about blue?Okay I know what some of you are thinking. Spiderwort? Why it's just a common weed! I reckon in many places it is but I like it's blooms and basically it takes care of itself. Now who doesn't like those kind of flowers?I know this plant has appeared on my blog before but I just love it. It's called Arkansas Blue Star(?). It's very grass like, blooms these beautiful blue star like blooms and turns a beautiful golden color in the fall. Then lastly, aren't these the prettiest little blue bird eggs? The blue birds have been hanging out at the nest lots so I popped my camera in and this is what I found. Can't wait for the babies.

So until next time, happy gardening!

Guess I Like Pink

Strolling thru the yard I realize I must like pink.My pink rose bush has never had this many blooms. But then maybe it's because it's never been this size. Duh!This year I have a couple of rosey pink geraniums sitting on my front porch. They are doing well in a mostly shaded area.Lastly pink azaleas. I'm not sure what variety these are but they are late bloomers which is fine by me.

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful spring weather we are having! Until next time, happy gardening!
