This bird feeder I picked up at a garage sale two summers ago was put out in the garden. I don't actually feed the birds due to feline household members but I like the pretty carved birds that sit on the edge.
I toured the flower garden looking for new blooms and was not disappointed. The sweet woodruff is pushing out new growth at the foot of the apple tree.
At the plant sale this year I bought three new hardy geraniums as I liked the dark green and highly divided foliage. I had no idea what the blooms would look like but was delighted to find a few flowers adorning them now.
They are a mid-size bloom and quite purple. A very pretty addition to this bed.
The hardy geraniums I purchased last year at the sale are also putting out flowers. These are tiny blooms but they pack a punch.
That hot pink is quite visible even from a distance. Jacob's ladder have also started to blossom.
I kept meaning to move these plants to another spot in the garden but now that they're blooming it will have to wait until fall or even next spring.
And finally, the roof is complete along with gutters.
