Love the color of this birdhouse.
And this is a Blue Bird house. Blue birds are extremely picky birds. They require specific dimensions for their nesting quarters to ensure proper nesting and renesting each year. Click here for the specifics: http://www.bluebirdsforever.com/houses.html
Flower buds are so fascinating and beautiful to me. It's amazing how they can change overnight.
The rustic details are intriguing.
The wide array and colors of hydrangeas are my favorite part of his garden.
pale blue and white
Bright pink and green
I tried my hardest to get a picture of the hummingbird that visited my a dozen times while I was snapping away. He unfortunatley didn't stay long enough each time for me to get a good snapshot. I did get this guy to stay put for a few seconds.
There were a few wild strawberry bushes mixed in which actually have pretty little buds and flowers on them.
I hope you enjoyed my neighbor's garden as much as I do. He was certainly thrilled to know he was being "published"....although not really understanding what exactly a blog is. I had to laugh. I'll have to truck my laptop over and show him the finished product. Happy Gardening....or at least vicariously living through the gardener in your life!
