Just a quickie post to celebrate the opening of the New Dawn climbers - they are so pretty
and really light up the back fence.
The three old birdhouses look somewhat dilapidated now but I haven't the heart to take
them down and throw them out ~ there's a nest in the yellow one, a tiny bird who isn't fussy
about needing a new roof or paint job, probably a wren or chickadee, haven't been able to catch
a glimpse of who visits yet.
My neighbor behind the fence has a Southern magnolia tree ~ it was tiny and quite tidy
for several years after he planted it but has now grown into a monster. The leaves drop over
the fence onto our garden causing quite a mess. As they say, "a garden is a job forever", so true.
