Hummingbird feeders, bluebird box

I daresay I need to refill the hummingbird feeder! Danged ants. You put soapy water in the cup up top to prevent them getting in. I neglected to do that!

My bluebird box has anything BUT birds! Two fireflies, a caterpillar, a spider...


We had to go for lawn tractor gas. I imagine there have been gas thefts... The signage is a sad signal.
JB cannot lift the gas can, so I have to go. I can't drive, with my eyes... We're a pair!

JB's been doing twice daily walkies. As have I! 


Nutmeg... sigh. I made her drop it. It scurried up a tree. 

Cinnamon snagged a mouse.

Thanks to those posting floral photos, I remembered to check Maggie Magnolia. 

My primrose just wilted in the heat! So did we!

Phlox is fine.

Last look at the daffodils! They are gone. 

I'll end on a happy note. We've had a heat wave. Cinman loved lying in the cool dirt. He actually rang the bell, but not on camera!

...I hope that you can get your cataracts done soon!

I am really appreciating the glimpse of a northern spring and the memoires evoked.

Glad you guys are surviving!

Not one of my regular dafs came to bloom. The tiny early ones did, before the heat. The tulips withered and dropped.
Hope things are starting to open up now. Do you have any idea where you are on the wait list?

Jenn .. I just know Cinman DID ring the bell ... you can tell he was just about to do it when the video stopped ... LOL
YES.... this getting old crap ? .. it can be so aggravating you wonder why you even try at times .. but then again what would you do with your spare time ? LOL ... gardening goofs like this though ... holy smokes ! where the heck was my brain .. it was a total shock to see those blue iris , but then again they are gorgeous so I just have to eat my memory lag and get on with it ?
Good luck with your eyes .. I had mine done last year and I know I am lucky compared to now.
Take care
Stay safe !

Love your cats' antics. Of course, I would. And all your beautiful scenery. Seriously, does soapy water work with ants? Oh my gosh, wood duck eggs. I've seen only ONEwood duck...ever.

We had a large petrol can, for the ride on mower. After Hugh hurt his shoulder, I had to help him lift it up. Damage to MY rib muscles, hugely, so after that he used 4 smaller petrol cans, and it made the whole job so much easier. The eggs look great, and all else is very spring-like.

There can't be too many gas stations without payment at the pump these days. said...

It's been really hot here today too [UK]

For the rotten weather you've had you certainly have lots of flowers blooming.

No idea, Karen. They won't tell me anything. I've a 2nd consult with someone different in July. Maybe! That was made months ago.

Watching Cinnamon, I'm reminded of a cat I saw a few days back lounging among tulips.
