Whimsy In The Garden

I love this time of year.  All the planting 
accomplished a few weeks ago,  and
now we're watching the growing.
 I couldn't be more pleased
with our little garden...the small size
enables us to easily care for it.   

Small gardens nearly always require a bit
of whimsy....and so it is we've introduced
sweet birdies this week.

Never before have the Coleus grown to these sizes
so quickly....must be that Miracle Gro special soil.

I wonder what the Mockingbirds and Mourning Doves
think of these whimsical parrots?

Into all our lives, in many simple, familiar, homely
ways, God infuses this element of joy from the 
surprises of life, which unexpectedly brighten our
days, and fill our eyes with light.~Longfellow

Sweet blessings for all.....Dee Dee
