Well here it is the day after a huge rainfall yesterday morning .. sunny but a bit windy which I would wish it was NOT .. but you have to work with what you've got right ?
OK .. funny picture from yesterday (after the rains) .. Mr. Chips our summer out door "pet" came to visit Sophie , well .. ok .. came to gather more sunflower seeds but the visit was of course his way of being polite to her ?
Next our crazy cardinal with gathering more goods for the nest.
I can't believe I got it .. neither can he ? haha
I'm throwing in a Goldfinch picture just because they are so pretty !
Thankfully I bumped into another gardener at a garden center, who is having the same problem.
Some years are worse than others as we all know ... ugh !
The best stand up, long lasting peony I have is Green Lotus.
I think the wrinkled structure of the flower actually strengthens, and extends it's life span.
I may have to rethink the plain white one I have ... hum ?
Ant is prop in picture just for the fun of it since "little" garden life is included in post.
Well ... I have to go to work .. fingers crossed I actually get some done !
PS ... Well today turned out to be way too windy and a few rain showers .. so tomorrow ??
ALL fingers and toes crossed
