Friday morning there were only two out of five little birds left in the nest on my door. By the end of the day they were all gone. We actually saw the last little guy fly out of the nest and up to the top of the big holly tree in my front yard. My granddaughter and I heard lots of chirping just before dark tonight and we are pretty sure it was whole family in an oak tree near my porch. It looked like they were all practicing their flying maneuvers!
I'm late getting started this year but today I started buying annuals for my front porch and deck. We had a serious infestation of inch worms earlier this spring and they have destroyed my hens and chickens on my corgi topiary. This is my favorite time of year! I love shopping in the garden departments and seeing what new plants are available this year.
