I am posting a little early this week, as I have lots to do tomorrow. I made some progress this week in the garden. We bought a new gazebo for the deck and PH installed it. I don't have the photos of the final product, but will post them next week.
This is as far as he got on Friday evening. It's 10' x 10' and makes a big difference to how long I can sit outside in the summer. This has mosquito screens too so we will enjoy sitting out there in the evenings. I have been collecting seeds for the last little while and some were sent to us by advertisers. A good idea don't you think? Still haven't found wall flowers Lynda, but I have one more place in mind before I give up the search.
We had good weather this week and the blue skies are such a welcome sight. I love taking photos of it through the bare tree branches.
A closer look shows buds on the tree, but they don't seem to have progressed since the beginning of the month. I hate to say it, but we need some rain.
We had some visitors too. The next two pictures are taken from the dining room window so they are not as clear as they could be. Opening the door would have scared them away, so this is the best I could do. I had seen the robin in the cedar hedge a few times and wondered if she was nesting. It turns out she was trying to take the green 'string' that we had used to support the hedge last winter, when heavy snow had weighed the young trees down. Mrs Robin had been patiently working at the knots, and was now at the other end trying to loosen them there. How she would have flown off with about 12 feet of string I'm not sure.
