Show and Tell

I had a blog post for today and well, nothing is going as planned today.  Last night (the 4th) was horrible and today has gone off kilter as well.  I am fine - just not real focused.

So today is just a show and tell of the yard.  Enjoy!

I love purples and oranges.  It seems that is the bulk of most of my flowers.  That has always been appealing to me for some reason.
                                               The front walk full of purple and pink.
                
       The phlox is starting to bloom and smells so sweet.  The butterflies love it
                                                                The finches love these
                                                                        Mallow
                                                                   Squirrel planted
Impatients
The potted tomatoes are getting several tomatoes set.  I do believe the volunteer plants growing the garden area have a lot more tomatoes and they are even bigger.  They have the most peculiar blooms on them - they look like little dandelion flowers!  They are strange - but they are producing individual larger type tomatoes.  Most volunteers I have had in the past always seemed to have cherry tomatoes.  So I am happy for what is producing.

This is part of the back feeding station!  See that black tube hanging?  That has sunflower seed for the woodpeckers and the cardinal in it (others eat too).  A couple years ago the bottom got a hole rusted in it and the remainder of the feeder was good.  I took it apart and placed a canning jar lid in the bottom to cover the hole and woohoo it is still working.  The white empty looking hanging basket is also used as a feeder.  I put regular seed in it (on top of dirt) and the birdies love it.  
Squirrels have sun flower seeds, corn and they get peanuts as well.  What a rough life!!!!

That is show and tell for today.  Hope you all enjoy your day and your weekend.
Play in your garden or yard if you get a chance - it will make you smile!

    1. Yeah - the idiots in the neighborhood went extremely overboard with illegal fireworks and it was horrid. I had a major panic attack that required medication. Cats were terrified. SO inconsiderate - and the neighbors next door even knew how it was for me. My inner "B" came out last night too - they got told.
      If I had someone here it would be different. Just having no comfort was awful and sad. I had a meltdown as well.
      Got to get them big girl panties out!!!!!!

      Thanks I love my little yard.

  6. Anxiety attacks are awful. I am sure it takes time to get over the feeling. Sometimes you just can't be brave and strong anymore and need someone to care. Love the flowers! Was planning on weeding today but would had a lot of rain last night and then again today.

    1. I am doing better thank you.
      I wanted something else for the smaller birds - I have finch feeders and a small bird cage hanging out there (you prob. didn't notice in the picture). I have pigeons show up a lot and they are bullies at the regular feeder. So I have quit using it for a while.
      Want the little birds to be able to eat in peace!

  10. This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited here online on the 17 June and i saw a marvelous testimony of Tracie Adana from United States on the forum about the good works DR.tunde I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR.tunde did a marvelous work for me that restored my marriage of 4 years by getting back my husband back i just as i read on the internet. I'm Carolina peter I was truly shocked when my husband knelt down pleading for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of words to use to show my appreciation to DR.tunde For his a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of my marriage.
