A Robin Came To Visit

Every few years a stray comes to my garden.
To make me happy I believe,
perhaps sent from Dad?
They are VERY rare here.

COLOR? Bright color in Z's garden?
yep and pigs fly

First Pink

As budget allows a few more annuals will be added.

My wee space is nearly done,
and I am done in..

C'mon by for a visit girlfriends.

So nice to see someone planting flowers instead of shoveling snow! Still a bit early for us, but soooon. We have so many robins here. I once looked out to see a whole bunch of them laying on the ground with their wings spread and not moving. I thought they were all dying, I called my mom and she said they had been eating my berries and were intoxicated. Imagine, robin junkies, haha!

Isn't it great to be gardening? Just love the pretty flowers in the galvanized bucket! Pretty!

Oh wow, you have beautiful flowers, and we still have SNOW.
someday....hopefully before to long, I'll be busy in my greenhouse planting away.

I love it when the robins return. They are prevalent here in Idaho and I love it when they show up.
Your garden is looking so beautiful Z! Mine is still brown and ugly so this has been a treat for me today :)
sending love...

I'm hoping to add some flowers next week! Yours are gorgeous!
hugs, Linda

Oh so pretty and such a difference from here to there. We have many Robins but I have never seen a single Morning Dove except in the forest. You can grow the heat-loving plants and they will not thrive here. I have no roses blooming yet but the the Rhodys are starting to open.

I would give anything to see a robin here!!! I did see two more scorpions tonight - not quite a fair exchange. The back looks wonderful, Z! Take a rest...Tanya

Wow, looks great! I am starting to clean the backyard to get ready for pool season, I am a little early as we don't open til May 31st, but I just can't wait! I will do a tour of my backyard space on my blog when we do open, you have inspired me!! Make a jar of sun tea and sit a spell you deserve it!!

I love it - the colour pops and it all looks beautiful and cozy - how weird is that for an adjective for an outdoor space but that's how I see it!
Love your yard z.

Your color splash looks incredible. It reminds me of the south of france a little. You even matched the flowers! I too have been wanting a little color I think it's the Posie influence:)
I can't get hooked on a bird cam again like I did that one spring. But I still bookmarked it.
