Wednesday

More gardens pics:
I took these at night.

AND....
There are a lot of good people out there.



AND...

The warm weather and the tulips popping up went to my head and I planted my rhizomes. What was I thinking?
Tulips

AND...

We went to a luncheon this weekend and one of the women introduced herself. Our conversation went something like this.
She said, "Hello. I'm Sandra. And you are?"
I said, "Hi. Sandra." Smiling.
She said, "That's correct, I'm Sandra. Your name?"
I said, "Sandra."
She said, "Yes, I'm Sandra. And you?"
I said, "Sandra."
At this point someone stepped in and did the introductions:)

AND...

A Carolina Wren found its way onto the porch where two of the cats were. When I tried to get the cats in the house so I could get the bird off the porch, the bird flew in the house. After a hectic chase, the HH managed to herd the bird outside.
That little wren should have bought a lottery ticket because it was sure his lucky day.



AND...
Abject apologies, I've been falling behind with my visits. If I'm not at your place, I am on my way. Darn Netflix.

  1. Love your garden. I have just finished a BIG bulb order. I am not going to admit how many I have ordered but it is in the multiple hundreds.
    Hooray for a cat smart enough to bring her kitten to where it could be helped. And hooray for the helper.
    Smiled at the twice Sandra story.

    1. We'll see:) It turned cold right after I planted the rhizomes.
      That little wren did give us a run for the money:)
      Yeah, the Sandra thing was pretty funny:)

    1. That wren was one lucky little bird. He came in one door and went out the other...after finding all kinds of interesting hiding places:)

  5. That sounds like quite the adventure getting the bird out of your house. Funny exchange with that woman. She wasn't really listening well.

    1. It was an adventure indeed. On more than one occasion, the HH would think he had him when the bird had already scurried away to another hiding spot:)

  6. I'm not planting anything until April. We had a deep freeze the first of April 2 years ago.

  7. So nice to see the flowers. There's snow and slush in my yard. Planting outside won't happen until the threat of frost is over in mid-May. Milo's story was very touching. I laughed at the intro conversation. Right out of Abbot and Costello. Wrens are industrious and cheerful birds. By flying into your house, s/he brought some of that spirit to yours. and also lucky that the cats didn't get a taste of the cheerfulness, too. Have a good day

    1. I love Carolina wrens. What a lovely thought of bringing his spirit inside.
      You are smart to wait for spring to plant.
      I think I'm going to have to get another hellebore. I love seeing them bloom in cold weather.

  8. Oh my! You have tulips coming up! I am wildly impressed!

    Loved everything here and saying a bit of gratitude for your efforts in saving the sweet wren from a certain death (or at least, trauma!) (I know. I'm stuck in Netflix too.)

    1. Every spring they come up way too early. At some point between now and spring we'll get zapped. I must admit, though, they are heartwarming to see.
      The HH is a good bird herder:)
