Tricycle Birdbath

There's a mourning dove on the handlebar She likes the small birdbath we created.
Yellow finches are spending time at the feeder on the right of the nectarine tree in blossom. Though all are small items in my backyard they bring immense joy.
Ellie, our new cat, also enjoys the birdbath and feeders. She's only able to go outdoors on a leash. We must keep the birds and her safe from harm.

Meet the newest member of our family, Ellie. Our youngest daughter decided to adopt her from a rescue centre on Saturday.

Ellie has made herself right at home. She has accepted us cautiously but willingly and we enjoy watching her become familiar with us and our home.
She makes us all smile.

   Here are snaps of just a few lovely planters that were prepared by my children for my Mother's Day surprise while I was away. What a thoughtful thing to do. For the entire season I shall be able to look at these and cherish what they have done for me. Hugs to them!

 At long last we have something spectacular in our backyard. There's only one little tree and it has blossomed. Here's a glimpse of it since I was there to capture its beauty.

These indoor plants sit untouched by the droplets outside.
May the rain that keeps falling day after day brighten the gardens outdoors for us to enjoy. Hope you have a pleasant weekend. Here it's Mother's Day on Sunday.
