Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday, wishing everyone a great day!

What's prettier than birds and blooms, we have plenty around the yard now. I still have many trip photos to share but I wanted to share my backyard blooms, moon photo and some birds. I hope you enjoy.


The moon on May 26th

Our crazy House Wren controls our yard, he chases away any bird that comes near.


The clematis is blooming nicely.

Our rhododendrons are looking beautiful too.


"Where flowers bloom so does hope". Lady Bird Johnson


We picked out some annuals that the hummingbird and maybe the butterflies will like: top left is a Dahlia that reminds me of the red and white peppermints, the red Salvia, bottom left is a new plant for us is called upright Fuchsia and lower right my favorite Lantana.


I enjoy watching the sky and pretty clouds shapes. This photo was taken while walking on our local fire road. 



I am thankful for our local nursery, they have a great selection of perennials and annuals. 
I am thankful for the pretty flowers.
I am thankful for all your visits and comments.

  3. House Wrens are such pugnacious little critters. It always amazes me that they will take on a bird of any size.

  7. Gorgeous blooms. And the finches seem to like the sack. Wrens do have a mind of their own. We were rejected this year. They checked out the house and moved on.

  13. I think I may have a crazy house wren in my bird house, which means with babies probably. I've seen it only a couple of times but hear her a lot! Lovely as always!

  15. Clematis are AMAZING. Our neighbor has one and at first I thought it was an artificial flower. LOL

  16. Our wrens are pretty bossy too but I do enjoy watching them. Beautiful flowers, Eileen. I haven't seen the Fuchsia either. I have some Lantana planted in a pot too with some Zinnias. Summer colors are just beautiful and so eye-catching.

    GASP!! SO true.

  26. Beautiful flowers. Dahlias are a favorite. I don't see many rhododendrons around here. Loved seeing them when I lived in North Carolina. Along with azaleas. That city turns into a flower in the spring. I like cloud shapes, too.

  45. Eileen - sometimes the daily world around us just trumps our reports on our vacations … we are compelled to share the beauty that is just outside the sliding glass door. For one, I am so glad you shared these images. All wonderful! Especially the clematis.
