Garden Skies for Friday

I was working so hard in the garden yesterday I can hardly move today .. and yet there is so much to be done.
Isn't that always our garden's attitude .. "give me more attention!!" .. and I don't really mind when it is back to just regular maintenance ... but I am still working on structural ? changes ..
The sky demands attention too .. so on with the show !






Not overly dramatic but some nice colours and backdrop and yes .. I am playing with the new options on Picasa still .. I love the museum mat option to bits !

.... now for an addition to our rental properties aimed directly at our visitors the Chickadees .. I stumbled on it while buying mushroom compost (5 bags .. no weeds guaranteed!!) .. this was the only one on the shelf .. I may be back for the half price heated bird bath .. already planning for winter entertainment ! haha

 Husband put it up straight away and I will take a picture of it outside soon .. fingers crossed our chickadees will like it enough to start their little family in !

What lovely bits of Canadian sky! Hope your birdies like their new home. We get lots of chickadees here as well - they are so cute.

The sky scenes are pretty! You have had such good luck with your chickadee feeders, I think that I should get one.

You always have the prettiest sunrises with pink skies. The new house is so cute. I would go back and get that heated birdbath if it was half off Joy. LOL! Love a bargain and it will be nice when winter comes for sure. Have a terrific weekend and do not work too hard. I know what you mean about not being able to move. LOL!

Hi Rebecca : )
I love chickadees and I was shocked that they used an ornamental birdhouse last year .. so now I am offering more houses to rent and bring more families in ? LOL
They are such sweet little birds aren't they ?

Sandy girl you have to have at least one .. I am determined to have as many as I can squeeze into the back garden !

Thanks Lona girl .. I have to get back to that store, I hope by tomorrow ! It would be so great for my kitty girls to watch birds taking a bath right there on the deck ;-)
Yup ! that "I fell on the floor and I can't get up now!" routine never gets OLD here ! hahaha

Okay, yes, I can see why you had to buy it. It's really a nice house and the chickadees will move right in, if they haven't yet. I hope you're not working too hard while the "cat" is away. :)

Nice sky shots too, of course.
