Turning a Yard into a Whimsical Garden

garden in the sun, planted pots, bay laurel 035 (427x640)Colorful planter gardening. Hopefully my plant pots aren’t too small, but nothing else will fit in the stands. These were my mother’s, so I had to put them to good use. The colorful pots are mine. They’ve really gone to whimsical colors just so I can have a whimsical fairy garden.  🙂

garden in the sun, planted pots, bay laurel 033 (640x427)I’m adding a border, but when I did it, I realized I need to cut back more grass. The white bricks behind the lavender against the fence is to keep the dogs from going on at each other as much beneath the fence. It worked to begin with. My puppies thought the brick wall I had at my old house was up for a while. 🙂  I ran out of pavers, so when I have a chance, I’ll go back in and get more.

I need a new cover, so still working on finding the right picture, and almost done with edits.

Off to talk to the CPA about the taxes!

The Goldfinches are Back!

gold finch and flowers in vase 002 (640x464)I think the blue glass ornaments attracted the birds. I’ve had more cardinals, goldfinches, and other birds show up that I haven’t seen for a while.

He has been the only one to nibble on the tower of goodies so far.

Then another came along and they were watching the squirrel below.

Have a super wonderful Monday!! 🙂

A Bit of a Fairy Garden

close up of blue and silver wind chimes sunset 001 (640x427)Added some wind chimes with glass baubles and a blue glass bottle for some interest. A sparrow jumped on the wind chimes, scared himself and jumped on the feeder while a house finch watched him. The fairy wind chimes didn’t scare them off.

I couldn’t decide, have everything blend in or be bright and colorful and whimsical? The fairy garden won out. 🙂

A Very Jaguar Christmas was sent back to the editor. And I’m back to working on Golden Fae!

Have a great Sunday!!!

Happy Easter Weekend!

Easter picture (338x357)puppies before breakfast, storms, lavender 004 (640x427)It was still a stormy day, and I took a picture of the lavender and rosebush, only this is the pastel picture I got. Interesting, eh?

red-bellied woodpecker 003 (445x640)I know this is a woodpecker, but all I’m getting is tail feathers. lol Why is it they like to hide from me? I just want to take a picture! So the woodpecker flew off and then came back later, and this time, yes!!! I could even see which kind it was. A red-bellied woodpecker eating sunflower seeds.

woodpecker 018 (458x640)

And I’m actually keeping up with my word count on Golden Fae! And I’m still working on a couple of bear orders. 🙂

I managed to plant one of the plants I needed to. It’s great for hummingbirds and butterflies. Golden Esperanza.

Esperanza 001 (640x427)Esperanza 006 (563x640)And caught a cardinal on the feeder before I closed things up for the night.

Have a lovely Saturday!!! I was critiquing my partner’s Highland story, so back to Jaguar proof-reading. 🙂

After the Storms…

lavender, spaghetti 003 (640x433)I’ve decided to call my dogs bird dogs. Not because they chase them, though they do like to chase the doves, but because they think they’re a couple of birds, looking to eat the bird seed the squirrel knocked out of the bunny feeder. Yep. Forget the birds. Between squirrels and puppies….the birds lose out.

lavender, spaghetti 007 (640x427)Dahlia with rain drops on the upper petals.

lavender, spaghetti 008 (640x427)Wet knockout roses.

lavender, spaghetti 012 (640x427)Three little tomatoes. Will tomatoes grow if they are watched?

Happy TGIF!

The Problem with Spring Is…

when I go to the grocery store, I want to buy plants. When I go to the hardware store, I want to buy plants. When I go to the plant store, well, naturally…..

tomatos and new plants 001 (640x353)I had to put the stones in there because the puppies thought this was their box to play in too. But, hopefully the tomato plants will do great and I’ll actually have some tomatoes! There are actually 3 on the one plant already.

tomatos and new plants 004 (640x427)I planted the blue, red, and yellow flowers in the holes where I took out the burford holly. These will only get to 2 feet, rather than 6-8 feet. 🙂

I still have a couple of empty holes I need to fill.

I almost forgot the groceries I got so excited about the plants, and the plants took up most of my basket! 🙂 That’s a great way to lose weight, by the way. Buy plants instead of food, and then go home and plant them. 🙂

Have a super day!!!

The Tail Feathers First

blue jay 001 (640x427)Okay, so I’m having fun photographing different birds that come into the yard. I’d seen a male blue jay and female the other day, but not long enough to photograph. So this one landed on my bird feeder and I couldn’t get him there either. The bird feeder is too small for him. But when he landed on the oak tree, I thought, great! All tail feathers. But at least he turned a little so I could see his face.

blue jay 016 (640x622)I took a lot of tail feather pictures before he turned sideways and gave me a really good shot.

blue jay 018 (614x640)And then a fun shot of him flying off.

The Viking’s Highland Lass was uploaded to all the sites. Itunes should be available soon for preorder. Amazon has a glitch for their previewer, so I’ll have to check it out again tomorrow. I’m now working on the edits on A Very Jaguar Christmas, and then back to Golden Fae. 🙂

Have a super wonderful day!!
