Photos From the Yard

Hi.  I hope everyone had a nice weekend!  I'm just sharing a few photos of the yard that were taken last week.  I hope to get some photos of the backyard this week!  Have a wonderful week!

Baby robins that flew the nest a few days after this photo was taken.  I waited a few days to make sure they didn't come back and I moved the dead basket with the beautiful nest, still intact, to a tree in the backyard.  Hopefully it will be used again.  It wouldn't surprise me if a mama dove takes it over.

Front porch.  I think it's going to be the last year I'll be able to use the pyramid.  It's literally on it's last leg due to rust.  I had to paint it with Rust-Oleum.  I love the vintage swan planter I got for a few bucks at a flea market last year.

I saw this Medusa plaque at the Elizabethan Gardens in North Carolina last year and I had to have her.  She's so cool and really makes a statement!

I bought this cute fox planter at Pier 1 for $9.99 and the fake mushroom collection is one of my favorites.

Cute gnome with some new purple coneflower plantings.

More mushrooms.

Such a cute garden arrangement you have, it is a bummer your plant pyramid is on it's last leg it is very cute. Love your little gnomes with the mushrooms!

I love all your garden ornaments - especially the fox :) we have a pair of wrens building a nest on a window ledge. It's fascinating to watch them work, and we're looking forward to little chirping babies!

Hi Kelly

Those silly robins build nests just anywhere. Love the little faces peaking over the top. You've been working there, and love the mushrooms. You look a little wet- have you been getting the heavy rains? Not us- probably will have to water in the morning.
