5 more flowers added this week, that makes the total 29, slowly growing into a quilt. Granddaughter Violet is out for a couple of days and held it up for me in the bright morning sun.
A nest of baby House Sparrows waiting for their next meal.
I tried a new nest box design with an oval hole. It was supposed to be for Tree Swallows but the sparrows claimed it first. The hole works good, as more babies can get their heads out at once.
Mac's a father
The neighbour's Scotch Collie came for a visit and the result is 7 puppies. The funny thing is they are all black, some with white paws, tail tips and chests.
Our wild pathway
I planted a couple sedums years ago and they have gradually made their way all around our house in the gravel pathway. There are some Gypsy Baby's Breath that reseeds itself also. I love the random wild look, and the colours are so pretty right now.
This plant has been growing at my husband's parent's farm for years. His sister owns the farm now and pointed it out to me in an area where some buildings used to be. I brought a few plants home a couple of years ago and they reseed themselves. I haven't been able to identify it, but I think it is a Hellebore. I have never seen it anywhere else.
Violet helped bring in the laundry. I am going to teach her what weeds look like today, ha ha, no it's not child labour!
