The garden is a flurry of activity lately, between the birds, and butterflies, lightening bugs, and bees, there's always something to watch or marvel at.
Despite all the nesting boxes being full of twigs, flora, and even Oliver the cat's ginger hair poking out, we've yet to see any signs of babies, I can only hope the squirrels have not stolen the eggs, they are so naughty.
Several Christmas's ago, my husband gifted me with a gorgeous hand-painted piece of glass, featuring all native Tennessee birds, and a Morning Glory vine weaving it's way through an old weathered rail-fence.
Just perfect !
It's as if I had commissioned the piece myself, everything so near and dear to my heart.
