Blooming Lilies!

I love daylilies. They require very little pampering. Growing in any type of soil, not fussy about water, but do like a bit of light or else they will lean out to reach the sun. I read once that lilies like their feet in the shade and their heads in the sun. And it's true!

Here are some of my favorites...

Lemon yellow.

Red with yellow throat.

Snow White.

Grape and gold.

Pair A Keets

A few weeks ago I moved my parakeets, aka "budgies", to the outdoors. I had a cedar rabbit hutch that was no longer being used for rabbits, so I got the bright idea that Casper and Freebird would enjoy spending the summer and early fall out in the fresh air.

So I hung their toys and put in some perches and booted their feathery butts outside! I think they are liking it too. Check out these photos and see for yourselves.

I gave them a nest box so I might be posting about baby parakeets in the future.

Spring 2010 Update


I've been working in the yard the past several weeks. Perennials are growing like weeds! Haven't filled the four barrel planters with annuals yet, but will be doing so soon. Here are a few photos of things growing and blooming.
