We found a place at the beach! We are so excited. We will be on vacation in 3 weeks. My sister and Rob's parents will join us! We found a great place with a pool one block from the ocean. It's located on a small island so it should be very calm and peaceful. We are all looking forward to some R&R.
This week Igor and I have spent a lot of time outdoors. We've been taking pictures of the birds/animals that visit our yard.
There is something about the American Goldfinch that makes me smile. This little bird seems to dance while feeding. Can you see the American Goldfinch in this photo? He's so tiny.
Here is Igor's favorite bunny- McQueen and Eastern Box Turtle- Sally
Igor and I made garden stepping stones this week. We bought colored ceramic plates at the thrift store. Igor smashed the plates with a hammer while I mixed the concrete.
I poured the concrete into molds. Igor arranged the broken pieces in the wet concrete. I had some concrete left over so I poured it into egg cartons. Maybe Igor can make cities with the little egg domes?
Here are two of my planter boxes. The deer haven't eaten these flowers yet...
My sunflower refuses to give up! Even though the deer have eaten it down to 8" it continues to bloom.
