A Wee Peek at my Garden.....
I'm not sure what this flower is called. A friend shared a few plants with me some years back. I love to watch the bees crawl up inside the bloom to get to the pollen.......
This is an apparently very happy hosta. I'm expecting some wonderful blooms from this! It has such a nice, full shape and it is right outside of our big picture window
Here is some ladies' mantle that my sister-in-law shared with me a long time ago.....I love the dainty, old-fashioned look it has.....
A pretty lavender rose that was a past Mother's day gift from Geoff and Lace. Isn't so pretty? It makes me think of black-raspberry ice cream....yum!
This is our grape arbor that we have in the way back of our yard. I planted the grapes the year after Lacey was born. I hope to get a lot of grapes this fall to make some jam! I love the smell of ripening grapes!
But wait! What's that I see?
Looking closely, I found this beautiful nest snuggled in amongst the grape leaves. There was a robin perched inside when I peeked.
And this is what I saw.....
Isn't is just beautiful? And we found two more nests nearby. One in our crab-apple tree and one in a juniper tree. I'm not sure if they all are robins....but I'm sure our yard will be full of peeping and chirping this summer!
Thanks for stopping by.....next I'll be sharing the hard work my daughter has been doing in her garden!
Have a blessed day!
