A Walk Around the Yard 06.06.17

I haven't had much time to post my yard photos, but tonight is the night!!  My daylilies are just gorgeous this year!  I attribute that to so much rain earlier this year and it continues to rain alot this year here.  I love every last one of them!!  One I bought last year has bloomed this year too!  Without further ado, here is my photos.





















All those flowers add alot of color to the garden and our life!  I have always had a flower garden and I always will!  The last photo was one I took in our fern on the front porch.  A sparrow made a nest and proceeded to lay her eggs in it.  About 8 days later I went to check if the babies hatched and all 4 eggs were gone!! There has been a bluejay hanging around here and they do rob eggs from other birds.  The grandboys would be crushed if they knew some other bird stole the eggs.  I told them they hatched while they weren't here and flew away.  I hate telling a white lie, but I couldn't take the boys being upset either!  When I told Jack (because he asked about the eggs hatching on Saturday) he said he was glad that those birdies all flew away together!!  So sweet!  I really enjoy sharing what knowledge of birds, flowers, nature, etc. with the boys.  Hopefully they will remember something of what I have said and pass it on to their children some day!  That is how I learned about these things, from my Nana!!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
