My dear friends, Cris and Con, Cris of An Artists Country Life Blog, gifted me last summer with some delightful wooden garden guests, this stately egret is one of them. We have many egrets living within a mile of our home, so it's as if one of those has landed and decided to live with us in our backyard.
Our dwarf peach tree is fully laden down with an abundance of pretty orange peaches. I hope we'll be home this year for the harvest. They often decide to fall from the tree when we are gone. I'd love to eat them fresh from the tree, as well as dry some in my new dehydrator for snacks later in the year!
This metal cat, a gift from another friend, has been living with us in the garden for many years now.
It loves to romp among the pink Mexican primroses and red orange trumpet vines.
The bunny, another creation of Cris and Con's, lives in the very old pot of red geraniums that keep coming back year after year after year. A very faithful plant!
My new basil plant is thriving well. I just need to remember to go out my back door to clip a few leaves when I am cooking! So delicious!
Cris and Con made this little lady too. She is almost being taken over by the Mexican Primroses she is busily watering!
And then there is Henry V, who has had enough of gardening for one day, and decides to go back in the house!
He does wish you, along with me, a very Happy Animal Wednesday!
