A Little Blog Break

Hello everyone!  The days are getting longer and time in the garden is busier than ever.  We've been trimming a lot of overgrown Aucuba that seems to need a haircut every couple of years.  Thank goodness my sweetheart likes to join me in gardening tasks!  The Wisteria is in the stage that I've referenced before as Love/Hate.  The Love stage is over and now we need to keep our shears sharpened to take care of its long, ever growing tendrils.  All these chores are happily done on a lovely day such as today.

This America Climbing rose is finally taking off in our garden.  Though still just a little over two years old, she has produced many lovely blooms to grace our table.

We bought this little bird to sit on the ledge overlooking our patio.  He was inexpensive, so I'm not sure he wants to sit out in the weather.

The little purple finch is wondering what in the world that little fellow is on the ledge.  He really doesn't know, but is happy to have his feeder full of safflower seed.  Did you know squirrels don't like it?  If you have a problem with squirrels raiding your feeders, buy safflower seed.

The Pulmonaria is filling in the garden nicely.  Its speckled leaves add interest to the many shades of green.

I enjoy having Hosta in our partially shady garden. 

The old Oak Leaf Hydrangea is beginning to light up the garden with its white blossoms.

This year the month of June is going to be quite busy for me.  I wanted to let you all know I won't be blogging or visiting your lovely posts during this month.   I do look forward to checking in with all of you in July.  

Thank you as always for leaving such lovely comments and sharing your time with me.
