In looking around the garden, I see a theme has developed. It's all about the birds and flowers. With approximately one hundred birdhouses, I suppose my collection is now nearing
intervention status! Some are decorative and some are functional with clean-outs, but long ago I found out the birds are the ones who decide which is which. A bossy little house wren has commandeered the gazebo garden where she and her hubby have taken up residence in a blue bird house, chasing any other birds who dare to come near.
Every new flower is an awaiting surprise and , as I stroll our garden, bird song greets me. A red fox streaked across the front lawn this early morning, probably from the cat food on our porch. We've had lovely rains and everything is an intense shade of spring green.

I'm looking for advice about growing corn. I'd like to plant some in my backyard, but I have a lot of questions. Does corn need a lot of sun? What type of soil is good for growing corn? Does it require a lot of water? Also, when is the best time to plant? Spring or fall?
Bring some BLING to your garden or outdoor living area with this easy project...
Wire garden fencing is bent into circles, the ends bent into hooks, and hung with resin &
glass crystals from old light fixtures... and the result is a lotta' sparkle in your yard! Use one circle, or multiples in concentric sizes for a tiered effect. You can also add test tubes or floral tubes, to hold flower stems and tall taper candles.
