Busy weekend !!

I’m still sick!! (Extremely bad cold, I think.) However, I spent hours in the sunshine–in my backyard–and accomplished a lot!! Pictures: #1, Tomato seeds planted and under a Grow Light; #2 & 3, $5. “Squirrel Buster” Bird feeder from Goodwill (#4, $35. at Lowes); #5 & 6, Creating air bottom(s)” for planters (make my own for $1 or less. Why pay $8. or more?)  #7, Ready to install squirrel baffle below Bluebird house; #8, Baffle.  #9, Surprise!! The Bluebirds have started a nest!!  #10, I love my Bluebirds!!  #11, Fresh water for the critters; #12, Transplanted Calibrachoa from a smaller planter; #13, Refilled the bird feeders; #14 & 15, Near the end of a busy weekend!!  #16 & 17, Surprise, surprise, the Christmas Cactus has a lot of tiny buds and one bloom!!  #18 & 19, Daffodils have tiny buds after our delightfully warm weekend!!  ~~  No pictures, but I also planted Nasturtium seeds outdoors–and small pots indoors.  ~~  I did two loads of laundry, washed dishes, and prepared a healthy salad.  ~~  It’s 8:45 and I am exhausted!!  I’ll be in bed early (won’t stay up to watch “The Good Wife”).  ~~  Sick!!–but very happy with nesting Bluebirds, Christmas Cactus (in March), and late Daffodils!!  Oh yes, the Honeysuckle vine is sending out new growth (that discarded–looked dead–plant that I adopted last Fall).

    What’s in that big wooden looking container that sits on the wrought irn table frame?

    • Calibrachoa. The Hummingbirds love it. Beautiful dark pink blooms. It’s a perennial and I kept it in the apartment all winter. I want “more of a good thing” so will allow greater growth (and more blooms?) in a larger planter.
