More Spring things...

My Sunflowers have sprouted. I got them for Easter, and I was late in planting them.

They were a little taller when I checked on them the next day.
I heard a dull thud against the patio door the other morning while mom was away. This is what I found after she got home, the poor little sparrow, so sad.
Do you see him? More wildlife in our yard. He was gathering seeds dropped by the birds at the feeder. Mom gets really mad when they dig and bury them in her flower pots.
 Dad's job for the day, get the garden ready to plant.
This is our garden statue. Mom told me she is going to have to repaint it this year.
Has anybody panted one of these? How did you get the old paint off without hurting the poly resin?
When I broke the news to the little girl bear, she just asked for more tea.
She and I have similar nose issues, hers from weather, mine from love.
 This is one of our two heirloom tomato plants.
 Chocolate Cherry...I wonder if they taste like chocolate?
 Dad decided our garden soil was in need of some serious tilling and amending this year.
All tilled and planted, just adding the finishing touches.
Buster came for a visit. Mom got us some worms!

Grr-bye for now,

Oooh... there is lots of activity in your garden! We planted tomatoes too but I don't think they are "air-loom" varieties. Do worms taste good?

Garden looks great Buttons! Are you going to go fishing with the worms?

Sullivan McPig said...

wouldn't it be great if you could grow chocolate in your garden! *sigh*

What great stuff you have in your garden (except the poor sparrow)
I have awarded you the Sunshine Blog Award.

If we could grow chocolate in our garden all flowers would lose their place I think :-)!

GruffHello there to you Buttons! I have come a paw plodding over from Eldritch the Dragon's (I know, a real Dragon, here in Blogland, well I am on my back legs akimbo!) - anyhows I do like your home here and read a few of your last posts, nice pictures, to the point captions, which I loved! Looking forward to having another sniff of your pawticulars soon! Take care, love Barnie x

We grew some chocolate cosmos flowers last year. The chocolate smell was wonderful and I couldn't wait for the harvest, but they taste HORRIBLE! Maybe they are for making those doggy chocs that even our dog won't eat?
Anyway, this year I'm going to buy my choccy and just grow fruit and vegetables to eat. Flowers are only for sniffing and looking pretty.
Your friend,
