I hope things are going well and you are enjoying the beautiful weather and your gardens. I had an excellent week and wanted to share my activities. My birthday was earlier this week and I received an arrangement from my mother/family and an azalea shrub from a co-worker (both pictured above). They were a very pleasant surprise considering the first thing to greet me at my desk in the morning is typically a mound of paperwork and notes from my colleagues! It was an amazing day.
I finally got a chance to go outside for a couple of hours today to observe things and so far, we do not have any dandelions growing in the lawn and no squirrel damage to my potted plants. YES!!! I know, I will knock on wood for now.
I also observed the antics of a robin red breast and a cardinal sitting on the passenger side mirror of our car looking at their reflections and I realized I don’t have a special spot in my garden for birds. So, I found a shady spot and I am working on hanging a small mirror with a wooden piece attached for perching. This spot receives no sunlight, so I am not worried about harsh reflective light which may cause the birds to crash into the mirror and injure themselves. Does anyone have any advice to share?
