I hope that you had a great Spring weekend. Spring is not exactly here for us yet, but I thought this week is a great time to add photographs of flowers that I took in gardens. Today was day-lily day. Irises and Tulips will be added next. Mother's Day is around the corner and flowers always make a wonderful gift. Have you ever considered giving mom a picture of a plant/flower to go along with a potted/planted gift? These gifts last longer than the cut flowers. And spending time with mom in the garden is always nice. Except when she finds that you pulled out plants that looked like grass/weeds to you! Even if it were, weeds are native and belong, and grass is necessary! ....Anyways. Fill those flowerbeds, they'll be less maintenance and great for pollinators and fireflies who are going extinct. Also, I offer another nature tip: if you do not live in a nature rich environment, but do have furry pets, or just cut your long hair, you can put fur/hair in a collection spot for the critters to use to build nests with. We use the suet feeder that people have left behind. We only feed the birds a natural liquid diet, they need to eat the bugs and spread the seeds. A hummingbird feeder only needs sugar and water, no dye, no store bought syrup. Keep in sunlight, wash often and rinse with vinegar. Have a great week!
