Jenny Wren

It took 9+ yrs but a Jenny Wren finally moved into the bird house. Must be the recent landscaping I did around the base of the clothsline/hawkpole !

#💐 #garden #CannaLilies

At the end of the growing season I knock the Canna Lily stalks down and use them for ground cover to protect their rhizomes from the winter. Plus the pods open & drop the seeds into the bed. In the spring they are moved to the curb for city pick-up. Two years ago I think there was a possum in there by the time the city finally got here to scoop it up.  ❕

The internet went down this AM so

I walked down the hill to the Oak Tree !

A long time ago for the feet & hands I would have used ‘Sealing Wax’, but when they disbanded the Pony Express, sealing wax is hard to find any more plus it is expensive !
