T Stands for Tuesday

Hell again my Tuesday
It's been a crazy busy week here and today I only barely have enough energy left to get this post out before crawling into bed . 
So if I ramble or don't make sense please forgive me. 
Joining Bleubeard & Elizabeth again this week ♥
Let's get the drink photo out of the way first. You all know why by now :) I'll forget it otherwise :) 
 It's Herbal Iced Tea time again. ♥ 
The weather has been beautiful and really not too hot. But when you're working directly in the sun it doesn't take long to warm up. 
With lots of help this week the front flower bed has all of it's mulch laid. 

It's time to mow again :( it's only been a week but it's that time of year. I'll probably let it go a few more days  just to have more to rake up for much in the veggie garden :) 

The Bottle Tree Garden even got mulched and the bottles straighten out form the winter heave.  The pictures aren't the best as it was very cloudy out today when I finally got around to taking the photos. We need rain so keep your fingers crossed. 
Most of the veggie beds are prepped and ready to plant. Just giving the plants started from seed a few days to adjust to being outside first. They are in the shade. 

The Strawberries are loaded with blooms and lots of little bitty berries :) I need to add a few more plants to the bed to fill it out more. 

The Woody's are hanging out at the suet feeder again. I think they must be nesting. The top photos is Mrs. Woody. She's not there often and when she is she is eating all she pulls out. Mr. Woody is there more often and he's filling his cheeks to the max and then flying off only to back in a few minutes. Either she is still nesting the eggs and he's feeding her or they have chicks all ready. 
The female doesn't have the red stripe on her chin is how you tell them apart.

  1. I hope you get nothing but gentle rain, because we are scheduled to have hail, high winds, long lasting tornadoes, and severe rain. Your garden looks wonderful and your bottle tree is to die for. My color blue.

    Thanks for sharing your herbal tea, your beautiful mulched garden areas, your lovely journal page, and your bird feeder with us for T this soon-to-be Tuesday.

  2. Love the bird photos, here they are all hungry, hungry, hungry, too. You have done a lot of work again , so no wonder that you are tired. Have a good week, happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  5. Your garden is looking wonderful, and I love your bottle tree too! Fascinating to see those woodpeckers, and so true that you don't see the females near as often as the males. Have a good week and happy T day!

  6. Your garden is looking great. Love the bottle tree and boarder. Reisling wine? We used to drink a reisling that came in a beautiful blue bottle.
    Happy T Day!

  7. Wow, your spring beds are looking quite orderly and ready for blooming. Love the pop of blue of your bottle garden. Happy T Day!

  8. Wow, your spring beds are looking quite orderly and ready for blooming. Love the pop of blue of your bottle garden. Happy T Day!

  9. I love photos of your garden. I'm fond of your wagon wheel and bottle tree. I hope you show updates through the season :) We've never left a suet feeder out over the Summer before, but this year we have woodpeckers and are leaving it out for them. So much fun to watch :) Happy T Tuesday!

  10. I love seeing your gardening. I wanted to get out but we have those little spring black flies right now so it is something else putting it on hold. You'll have some serious growth soon I bet. Happy T Day!

  11. Ooooh your blue bottle tree and border are WONDERFUL Carol!
    Your strawberry bed looks full of promise too.
    Perfect quote for your lovely art piece and the the image of the little girl is really precious too.
    Happy T Day
    don't work too hard ... if that's possible this time of year!

  12. Your garden is looking good, especially the Woodpecker! Love todays quotes! Chrisx

  13. Calling by to say Hello on T. Day. Lovely photos and you garden produce beds look wonderful.

  14. Oh thank you for sharing photos of your garden. It's the garden I would love to have but can't (too hot and dry here, Arizone type climate). I love that bottle tree. I have never seen blue bottles. It's a beautiful blue colour. Are the bottles plastic or glass? Are they empty bottles from something you drink or do you buy them as is? Fascinating.
    I love the quotes at the end. Too true.
    Have a good week,

  15. You have a fabulous garden and wonderful visitors to it! Love the tree too, I seem to remember you making it a long time ago when I was T-ing on a regular basis.
