For this week’s Tired Tuesday Post, I bestirred myself enough to walk outside and take a few pictures of my ever-changing yard. I fear the changes come slowly and often without any effort on my part. Perhaps I can make more of an effort as the season progresses. In the meantime, I will make do.
Note the bird-shaped hole.
I recently added this birdhouse to my front yard, using a hook I found in the garage. I hung another house on the porch (replacing the skull which had previously hung there), but I neglected to take a picture of that (preview of coming attractions). I went out back for more photo ops.
I’ll be so happy when they bloom!
Under the heading No Effort On My Part (and Preview of Coming Attractions), here are the buds on my irises. My Mom gave me the iris bulbs some years ago, and they have bloomed every year since.
Under the heading Some Effort, I decided to take close up pictures of my container garden.
I have had the desk for a while now. I found it in somebody’s trash the Sunday after the Herkimer Village-Wide Garage Sale. Don’t judge me.
I did a lot of pink and purple.
I only have one herb, but basil is my favorite.
There will be pesto!
The thrill and the fill.
I have read that in a good container, you have the thrill, the fill, and the spill. I think I need bigger containers, because the best I could do were the preceding and the following pots, each with two out of three.
The fill and the spill.
Another pink and purple.
There is a broken solar light in this one. At least, I accidentally broke it off its pick when I was trying to put it in the front yard. I put it in the pot in hopes it would still light. I have not been outside after dark to check.
I think the squirrels have been digging in my marigolds.
For my final pic, I go back into No Effort mode. I took this picture Saturday, but I could only post it on Facebook, and it was turned 90 degrees. Today a Facebook friend had turned it, so I downloaded his version to this device. Let’s see if it worked!
Here are my feet, relaxing on my deck. Yes, that is my novel they are resting on. I’m still making efforts on that.
