Birds, Bees and Flowers is the display chain this week

Amy at Bumble Bee Lane is hosting Misi's display chain this week, subject is birds, bees and flowers.  This is one of my favorite little fabric birds I have collected.

A little green bird on a pinkeep.

Love this little black checked bird pinkeep, it is filled with birdseed.

The little red floral bird pinkeep adds that special touch with the blue I am starting to display for summer.

My oakleaf hydragea is just starting to bloom.

New salvia I just planted called Hot Lips. I love the splash of color it gives to the garden.

This is a small triangle bed next to the road, it has become really lush with plants over the years.  Here some of my foxgloves are blooming, one of my favorite plants.  Behind them is an area of daylilies, and the new stepping stones I was just starting to lay that day, they have dragonflies on them.

This area has been a challenge, it gets some shade, here are some bearded tongue that seems to like it here.  Love the little chair I found, bee skep and bird house, I think items like this add so much to a garden.

This front large bed has lots of different plants, always trying to keep different things blooming all season long.  Here some tickseed, my husbands favorite, and some more of my foxgloves.  Things are just started blooming here good, I have lots of phlox, yarrow, bellflowers,lavender and lobelia that are up and should soon be blooming.  Still working on putting in more plants and redoing areas of my garden my  favorite thing to do this time of the year, gardening.  My favorite sign I have in my garden reads, "To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow."   Blessings, Vicky
