Four Eggs

Using my zoom lens, we spied on the nest today.



My sons surprised me with a flower delivery this morning.

When I saw this petunia in the catalog, I knew I had to plant my own baskets this year.

Mrs. Robin

We have a robin for a neighbor.  She's almost on top of the door we use all the time.  Last week we spied the nest, but using a ladder, we could see there were no eggs.

I still don't know about eggs, but she spends a lot of time sitting on the nest.

New Blossoms

I can't tell exactly how many times I have gone outside to check on the new plants.

We had unexpected problems with the water supply for the sprinklers, which isn't under our control.  We improvised.

I am very encouraged.

No Patience for the Impatiens

I ordered plants this year instead of having a nursery plant my baskets.  They arrived yesterday.  I thought they looked fantastic -- as good as if I'd just brought them home from the store.  We immediately planted them.  When we were finished, I found the planting instructions.  I was supposed to leave them in their containers, let them settle, allow them to get used to their new environment for 48 hours to a week!  I was supposed to water them sparingly with lukewarm water.  Well, I wasn't going to un-plant them.  They look pretty good this morning.  I'll keep my fingers crossed.
