Garden Girls


I'm not the only one enjoying the lavender this summer.  A robin has staked a claim as well.


I've been watching her for the last several days and today it finally dawned on me she had a nest in the red bud at the corner of the garden.


And I'm assuming the babies are still very small as I couldn't see or hear them, but I heard plenty from momma!


Back and forth she goes, in and out, in and out...


Bad Betsy has noticed her as well :-(.  We keep her in the house as much as we can, but too much house time makes Betsy a Bad Betsy on other fronts, as we well remember!


Betsy's not the only one stalking robins around here.  Chicken No has apparently figured out the robins know where to find all the good worms.  It's a funny farm for sure.

Are you tired of lavender pictures?

Ok, the chicken following the robin is pretty funny.

Too funny. I love the going ons at your farm.

That chicken has got it all figured out. I should give them more credit for being so smart!

I went back and read the story about Betsy. She sounds both mad and bad!

I am spotting a very pretty garden patch behind Betsy.

Rae said...

Beautiful. I feel like I could step right into your photos.

That's the dye garden. I did take some pictures but fear I am flooding the blog with flowers and need to be getting a Tour de Fleece post up and blah blah blah... ;-)

I could never tire of lavender photos. I like the photo of Betsy. What a beauty!

Lavender is just so wonderful. The chicken just cracks me up! And, photos of dye garden, when you have time (ha!there is never enough this time of year) would be great.

That is very nice lavender garden. And no, not too may pictures of lavender (or flowers in general:-).

All your garden pictures could be in a calendar. Bad Betsy! Stay away from those birds! Thecrazysheeplady doesn't need to raise a next of babies if you eat the momma.

I enjoy the photo composition as well as the content. Keep 'em coming! I need my daily dose of nature's humor, beauty, and entertainment through your artistic lens.

Your garden is seriously magazine-worthy. I think you secretly have a staff of 5 who help you behind the scenes and you have just kept them a secret. I think Chicken No just wants a friend. Who has food. :-)

Ed said...

Teamwork for sure..:-)
Great shots.

Well you know how I love funny farms !

I see Mama and Papa robin in the first picture. They are hard workers. It takes both to keep those babies fed. We have two robin pairs in our yard near the house.

No! I'm not tired of lavender pictures at all. I have 1 plant, and it's about 4" tall. It's my test pilot to see if lavender will survive winter here. The tiny little guy is blooming, so even if it doesn't overwinter, I enjoyed it. Yours are magnificent.

Terry and Linda said...

Your yard is just lovely! The lavender beds very dramatic and elegant!
