What a neat day! Luck was on my side as I sat in my chair on my porch early this morning! The visitors were excited and hurriedly visiting each of the plants still flowering in my garden.
As a lot of you know, some days you have "good photography days" and some days are not so good! Well, this just so happened to be a good day for me!
I was very happy to see that the Hummingbirds were still enjoying the flowers of my garden. The yellow finch was waiting for me to leave my seat so that he could visit the finch feeder I have on my porch. He did actually fly to the feeder to get a snack, but at that point he was actually to close for me to get a good picture.
Hope you enjoy the pictures!
Happy Gardening! Mindy

Hello fellow gardening friends! Yes, I am still around. The month of August found me hustling around with work, the beginning of school, and both girls making the volleyball team, one in middle school and one in high school. As you can image my weeks are very busy. I found myself missing my blogging and decided to make time to get in touch with everyone again! The first week in September has brought us much cooler temperatures here in Southern Indiana. as well as some rain showers! Everything seems a bit refreshed! I have been collecting up seeds and searching my garden for seedlings.
Below, I found this seedling plant from one of my Crepe Myrtle bushes! I was so excited, now to just baby it until I can move it to its own location!
Four o'clocks are nice seeding plants! The seeds are very easy to collect and grow easily when sown directly in the ground after danger of frost in the spring!
I have also collected some seeds from a couple of my daylily plants! I have placed these in the refrigerator in baggies to hopefully be succesful in planting either in pots this winter or in the ground this next Spring! I have not tried this yet, so hopefully I have some luck!
To all my friends, I look forward to keeping my blog up and have enjoyed this little post very much! It has reminded me of how much fun this blogging is!
I am still in the process of planning my shade garden and thank you all for the great input on shade plants you have had luck with! I have been looking at the Park Seed and Wayside Garden web sites for neat plants!
The bunnies (Oreo and Daisy) are doing great and growing like weeds! Hope to post some pictures of them soon! They are certainly enjoying this cooler weather!
Hope the cooler weather finds each and every one of your gardens!
