Thanks Kim! I tried to get a pic of a hummingbird on the bee balm today, but couldn't get it done...

Helen, Simply lovely! Makes me want to come visit

As for the birds, on the deck which is off of my bedroom, I have a birdbath with a little waterfall/recirculating motor, and the birds love it. I always enjoy watching the little guys, but, honestly its the larger birds, the robins, catbirds (one of my favorite birds) and blue jays that get down! Every single day there is a whole lot of splashing going on. I took a video, but can't get it to load without being sideways (oh well)

So, here are some flower pics instead.

Starting at the front of the house... Gardens and Birds-geoff-hamilton-front-door.jpg

Gardens and Birds-front-flower-bed.jpg

Gardens and Birds-cherub-front-flower-bed.jpg

Moving to the back, there is the rock garden...

Gardens and Birds-rock-garden1.jpg

Gardens and Birds-rock-garden2.jpg

And then, the deck with the bird feeders, bird bath, (the table has the grape jelly for cat birds, kind of confusing to look at if you don't know its a glass tabletop) ... and of course Ernie dog.

Oh wait, have to add this, my side back fence... this year these are starting to taking off, and I can't for the life of me remember the name of them... they're a David Austin rose...

I don't have a garden, but me neighborhood has a little garden hill in the middle where everyone takes their dogs and the old people do tai chi every morning. In the Spring these trees bloom something amazing. Here's a pic I took one day while walking my dog.

Rose, your gardens are amazing! I need to get outside and reshoot the beebalm, they're fully bloomed now.

Keep them coming all! I loved the pics!

I love the pics. My flower beds, unfortunately are mainly palms with very few flowers. I just need someone to finish putting down the weed protector and top it with what else? Lava Rocks. Only have a third left to lay.
