Green Thumb Sunday






I was missing the warmer weather just a little bit this week. I've been wanting to do some more slide shows and this weekend seemed to be a perfect time to do one. These are just a few from last year. Enjoy:)

I received this great book from DK Publishing last week. This is a beautiful book with lots of pictures of different plants. It has a plant hardiness zone map inside the front cover and a plant heat zone map inside the back cover. There are over 5,000 entries so I haven't had a chance for more than a glance through. But it is lighter than my other plant encyclopedia so that's a plus. It has gardeners notes here and there with information and useful tips. I'm sure I will be using this book a lot in the future.

Green Thumb Sunday



I'm pretty busy this weekend with the Army so I thought I'd do just a quick post and pic. Of course the computer doesn't want to co-operate so this picture took me an hour to get on here. This is Bella and an aloe plant. She looks like she is mad because she has an obnoxious kitten tormenting her constantly:)

Visitors



This week I have had a lot of visitors at the bird feeder. One day stands out more than the others. I happened to glance out the window and I saw red. Lot's of it. I crawled across the floor getting the camera set up and slowly raised my head to look out the window.

There was a cardinal convention in my backyard. I have never seen this many cardinals in one place before. They were everywhere they were even in the neighbors bushes waiting their turn. I don't know how many were there but I counted seventeen at one time. I know there were more but as soon as I moved my head to look at the serviceberry bush they flew away:(



I'm glad I got to enjoy such a wonderful sight. All I could think was how much my grandma would have loved to have seen it too. Michael and Austin kept popping their heads up to see but the birds didn't seem to mind them at all. Probably because they didn't have a camera.
