Flowers and Hay Fields...



In between working in the hay fields,

we have been trying to keep the deer out of the flowers…




I collect metal bed frames to use as flower fencing…







We painted 6 bed frames and put them around 

the new hollyhock bed in the back yard.

Last year the deer came in 

and ate the hollyhocks down to the roots!







This is a guest/storage house.

I store my quilts in here…..rolled up on shelves.

Flower Bed…..Friends




This little guy is a steady customer in the flower beds:




Hummingbird







He is selfish with the flowers…







He doesn't want to share any of the flowers in the yard







You can see his tongue sticking out of his beak…










It is rare that these little birds sit still for very long.

This fellow sat still for several minutes so here is some

LIVE video……enjoy!

Gunnr finds a walk through the flowers very relaxing.

in your personal art work.
I am always happy to share a bit of inspiration!
