in the garden ...

Hello Lilies
The lily have bloomed now, and we have big bright yellow clusters
in our garden :-)
And the Daisies
which seem to be a welcomed resting spot for butterflies and moths.
I often find a few sitting on the daisies.
I can never resist clipping a few daisies to bring inside ♥
lovely chubby bees enjoying our garden.
This has been the year of the Robin in our garden!
We have never seen so many Robins ~ it's been wonderful to see them thrive.
This is an older photo but I can still remember how thrilled I was when the Robins nested on top of our garden pergola.  I was able to get a "birds eye view" literally from an upstairs window.
Just look at all that beauty!!
We have a tiny little dish next to the pond which turned out to be the perfect spot for the fledging to have a splash.  They were cautious of getting into the birdbaths and not sure of walking around the pond, but this little dish was the perfect size.
Each morning we fill it up with fresh water and more often than not will find a bird either splashing about or having a drink :-)  We've also spotted a few butterflies enjoying it too.
Token
Painting inspired by all the little blue Robin egg shell fragments found throughout our garden.
They really feel like little tokens of Thanks from the Robins xo
Print available in my Etsy shop ♥
Have a wonderful weekend.
