I went down to the mailbox this morning with my camera. This is the view of our house from there. As you can see, my Iris are in full bloom. I love the colors we painted the house two years ago. We had student painters here from Clemson University and University of South Carolina. They did a great job painting and they weren't hard on the eyes either. Hey, I may be old, but I'm not dead.
Mr. Bird Nest Cottage is so very proud of his grass this year and how it looks. Last fall he sent a soil sample to Clemson University to have it tested and they gave him some recommendations he followed. Bermuda grass is kind of tempermental but this year it's looking great!
These are our three Little Gem Magnolia's that are getting ready to bloom. I'm so glad we took the time to place them carefully and they add such a nice look at the bottom of the hill.
My gazing ball is stainless steel and I have to be careful where I place it in the yard. It's so light it bounces around the yard when the wind blows hard and I end up chasing it. Is that considered cardiovascular exercise?
This little bird was given to me by a very dear friend. Mr. Cottage loves it! Who would have guessed? We even have a little toad in our toad house already. The grandchildren check on him every time the come.
Our yard became a wildlife habitat about 3 or 4 years ago. That means that we agree to provide food and water to birds and other wildlife year-round. Does yours meet those specifications?
