Letting the garden go


I won’t  show you how the garden is doing because it would make my blog ugly.  I will however just say it’s 110 degrees and the only thing that’s doing well is basil, tomatoes and my carrots that I pull up occasionally for my pot roasts.  Even if things were good outside it’s a little too hot to check.  So, I’m letting the garden go.

And clearly I’m feeding the birds unintentionally.

These are neighborhood love birds, I believe.  They sure are a loud bunch but so cute.  They are also completely destroying my sunflowers for an evening snack.


Hey you two, this is not that kind of backyard – get a room!


 Hope you’re all having a great week so far and finding time to rest – like Liberty.

Diana Elizabeth found it amusing and has often seen the hummingbirds and love birds quarrel over backyard perching branches.  Guess she did a good job with the backyard, the birds love it!

    I never knew you could keep love birds outside…………..

      No one is keeping them, but rumor has it perhaps someone had a pet and they released and multiplied? Not even sure if they are love birds but I suppose like any other bird, they’ll just find a way to survive! They go away in the winter and return in the spring, it’s pretty funny. You can hear when they are back :) They live in holes in the palm trees.
