Garden of “Eat-in” !!


Ideal location for the trellis.

“Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning.” A morning after a refreshing rain (1 & 1/4 inches) that cleared the air of pollen.  (Everything has been covered with a heavy “blanket” of yellow pollen!!)  I sat on my patio and watched the birds come and go.  The squirrels were (almost) at my feet to get the whole peanuts.  There was a Hummingbird at the red feeder a second earlier but I failed to get it in the picture.  ~~  No demands on me this morning: No chiropractor appointment. I do not have to work this afternoon. I can enjoy my Garden of Eden or, as the critters might say, “garden of eat-in.”

Postscript: I’ve spent over a year developing my yard hoping to attract Hummingbirds and Bluebirds.  Praise the Lord, to my delight, I have both!!

    You’ve got some great pictures of the little monkeys! Anything in the garden for you to eat? Vegetables, herbs?

  2. Nothing in the garden to eat–yet. Nasturtiums are good on a salad!! (Hummingbirds love them!!) I changed my mind about Topsy-Turvy upside-down tomato plants this year (my seedlings died). I might buy some pepper plants. Inspiration: I could grow zucchini, or cucumbers, in that large area by the parking lot.
