Special Visitor

Category: Village Square | Posted: Fri Jun 06, 2008 8:52 pm

I've been recieving many nice responses to my questions, I know will improve my techniques. Today I had a special visitor. While sitting on my front deck, under my very pleasant umbrella watching the birds and butterflies, a small brown bird with cream speckled breast dropped into an old watering can next to me and gave me the "eye". He flew off into the beautiful bradford pear tree in our yard. Later he came again, practically landing on my table. I hope they know that they are welcome and visit again. They seem to like my deck garden. I know the lizards do. I've added another Black and Blue Salvia to make a bigger "show" and a new variety of red, with a gorgeous scent. Slowly but surely, I'll have the "cottage garden" I want. I keep a picture of what I want it to look like on my kitchen wall. I believe if I look at it long enough, it will materialize.(with a lot of work of course.

Your garden seems to attract wildlife, and that is a good thing in my book. Keep at it, it will happen!

Thanks Droopy,

I love to watch it all happen and that includes the wildlife.

Sitting and watching all the wildlife in a garden is a wonderful way to relax isn't it? You sound as though you're doing the right things to attract them and I hope you have many more visitors dropping by.

I'm sure you'll achieve the cottage garden you want before too long. Please post some photographs for us of the progress you're making with it.

Gardengater I want the same thing.I'm sure its for a different reason.I hate mowing and with a cottage garden not near as much.I love birds but with the cats all over the place (not mine)
I only incourage hummers.

Thanks for all your messages. I love knowing my fellow gardeners thoughts. I promise I will work on pictures this week. Happy digging all!
