A Few Recent Photos


Just a few photos I've taken in the last week. Plants and flowers in the flowerbeds are growing nicely. We planted a new river birch tree and a new weeping willow tree. I will post pictures of them soon. The blue jay visited yesterday ~ the first I've seen him this year. The deer haven't been around for weeks, but suddenly appeared the other day. I've not been feeling well, but I can still push that little button on the camera!!

Nice selection of photos, Audrey. I love that first one, what is it? A decorative tile? Pretty. We have Stellar Jays here instead of Blue Jays. They are very striking looking.

Gosh you have the most lovely, manicured garden, and all the pretty visitors!
I am sooooo hoping you will be able to send that bug far far away really soon!
Take care Audrey!

XXOO!!

I love Senor Sun. He is wonderful. The deer are lovely to look at but those little buggers eat all the pretties huh?
Your garden is looking especially lovely. I'm with Deb....I envy ya'll in the moister climates. My stuff grows but begrudgingly and not nearly as lush.
Feel better my lovely, (((hugs))) until next time

Jan... Thank you. Yes, the tile with the sun on it is a Mexican tile. I love the bright colors they use in all Mexican art.

Thanks, Anne. Dh and I spend a LOT of time in the yard working in the flower beds, etc. We love being outdoors and we get much joy from our yardwork.

Maggi.... If the beauty of the yard would make this bug go away, I would bottle it and give it to everyone who has any ills!

Diva... the feeling is mutual. I always enjoy visiting your blog and I love it when you come by.

Linda.... I've always wanted to visit New Mexico. We sure do have moisture, but you have so much beauty there ~ The Land of Enchantment!
Yes, the deer can be very destructive. I spray all my plants every couple of weeks. I love the deer, but if they had my gardens for dinner there is no telling how I might react! (:

Love all your pics. The deer love to come in my yard also. My dog, Otis, goes crazy when he sees them...lol!

audrey said...
