A Glimpse of The Garden

I often talk about my quiet lifestyle and the place where I spend most of my time.  My garden has been a source of great joy and solace over the last five years, since we moved to this house.  Alot has happened in this time and the garden has grown into a little piece of Heaven for us.

This is the first summer that we haven't needed to put forth much effort in it.  Aside from the occasional weeding and adding a few potted annuals, we've been able to sit back and enjoy the scenery.  So for my friends and family who haven't had a chance to see it this way, here's a little tour around my cherished backyard.

Herb box

Hummingbird feeders can be seen from
the dining room window.  We have a pair of
these little guys hanging around, but  not today

The bird bath is always in need of fresh water, it's a popular spot
for all our feathered friends

These roses remind me of my grandmother.  She used to have
many bushes lining the far side of her house

Darren's vegetable garden

I sometimes see chickadees flying in and out of this feeder's nostrils

Dixie's path

Path leading to the composter and pet graveyard

Baby Blue, a new addition to the jay family

Woodpecker couple.  Their little one was foraging on the ground
below but got spooked by the pigeons

Chippy No-Tail,  born last Spring, and here to stay

Another juvenile jay, always close by and eager to be fed

This is just a glimpse of my favourite place.  And even if pictures don't do it justice, I hope you enjoyed the tour :)
