It was a perfect afternoon, I took my pictures and then enjoyed a "cuppa", tea of course, on the covered porch of the summer house.
|A painting of the garden hangs on the covered porch|
These two thoughful frogs caught my attention.
We are a garden walled around,Chosen and made peculiar ground;A little spot enclosed by grace,Out of the world's wild wilderness.
Joni Mitchell sang:
We are stardust,
We are golden,
And we got to get ourselves
Back to the garden.
It was a beautiful warm afternoon as you can see from the thermometer. We had tea on the covered porch and scattered crumbs on the path for the visitors, a host of birds. As we enjoyed our tea we were entertained by the antics of the birds.
Little birds flock to the garden and share the feeder, there seem to be one or two whole families of little birds. The garden is full of bird houses, feeders and there is water out for the birds, why won't they feel at home. A crow came by to have a visit and then a seagull (named Jonathan), that comes by every day for a treat, dropped by.
|Not quite sure what this bird is looking at|
|This little fellow has its' beak open perhaps waiting to be fed|
|I think these birds were having a dust bath|
|Jonathan ready for his treat|
I hope you have enjoyed todays' garden "tour", and that it has given you a smile or two. Thank you to the "garden keepers" for letting me inside your little oasis.
This is a print of one of my picrtures that has been framed to resemble a "cat door", I couldn't resist taking a picture of it. Isn't it a hoot?

Twelve of my paintings and two drawings are on display at Curves Point Grey until the end of September.
Curves (www.curveslocal.com/882 ) Point Grey, is located at 2570 Tolmie Street (at 10th). Curves is a women's fitness facility with a wonderful sense of community. The art displays change monthly, and while the art is usually for sale, the purpose is to add colour and interest to the facility. Visitors are welcome to come and see the art: women are welcome at any time (hours of operation), and men should phone and inquire about the best time for a visit. The closest BLine (to UBC) bus stop is Sasamat (then just a one block walk).
Thank you for visiting my blog, and happy "Whimsy Wednesday".
