A day for the birds…..

A beautiful,Florida day,today.
70’s,sunny,low humidity,and a clear blue sky.
Perfect for gardening.
I,usually,don’t take the camera with me,but,today,I did.
I wanted to see if the tomatoes….

But it’s been a great day for bird watching at TheGreatWall.

How’s the weather,today,in your garden?
Sunny and warm?
Or cold and snowy?

  3. I’m struck at how crud-free your tomatoes are…no worm holes or other critter-induced nastiness – so fresh!

  4. The photos are beautiful! Can’t believe your tomatoes are almost ready. And are those your plumerias around your bird feeder? Mine (indoors) lost their leaves. It hasn’t flowered in a few years. Maybe it will this year.

    • Sue,yes those are the plumerias.They lose their leaves at this time of year.That’s quite natural for them to do this.I’ve found they need full sun,lots of water,and great drainage.Emphasis on the drainage.They don’t like wet feet.And the tomatoes are late,this year.I have no reason why,but it took them forever to set fruit,this year.My son has had the same problem.

  5. Great photos! It was a perfectly gorgeous day south of you yesterday too, unfortunately I was indoors at work. Today looks like we might get some much needed rain and I sure hope so.

    I’m going to be indoors doing some rearranging and will post about it later. Off to fix some breakfast now.

    Have a great day and a lovely week ~ FlowerLady

  6. Lorraine,the TV weather guy predicts a somewhat rainy week,too.Yes,we sure do need it,with the dry season coming up.

  7. I love seeing the birds on my property. Tomorrow I’ll be adding a couple of bluebird houses and a kestrel house on a pole. Free pest control!
