Through my garden gate...update
We've been crazed people here lately, anxious to get our lower lawn shaped up into some semblance of a courtyard garden. The photos walk you down from the pool and follow the new path way through the gate into the main patio below and then back up. We are putting down sod on the right side of the path leading down and through the gate and have tons more mulch and about 3 more palms to acquire and plant. It is still a work in progress but we are making headway.
Yesterday afternoon, E called for me to come see our visitor to the garden. While I was expecting one of the huge butterflies who are attracted to our butterfly friendly plants, I was not prepared for the tiny emerald green hummingbird. I was so unprepared that the photo I finally took, came out unrecognizable. I have one of my camera ready and on my night stand just in case the tiny bird returns. I will also be getting a couple of hummingbird feeders today to encourage his return.
Hope your day is a good one.
