This year we decided our old "bird station", which had seen better days, was the first we'd tackle! :) Too many large raccoons had climbed it's poles to take off with the suet, cages and all, and one side was broken at the base, leaning from the abuse. It wasn't enough to weed and clean up the area. It needed to be torn down and ...
The birds love it, and seem to have spread the word, as their numbers are growing every day! :)
I've always wanted to grow trumpet vines for the hummers, so the added 2 posts gave me a place to plant an orange, and a yellow, flowering one at the front! :)
Two of the previous roses were replanted on the back posts after I gave them a hard pruning in order to dig and lift them. If they don't survive the out of season harsh pruning, I'll buy a couple New Dawn climbing roses to plant in their place. :)
The one ground cover rose is now planted in a huge pot until I decide on another location for it! :)
It's this year's first summer project to be accomplished in our yard! :)
Now, ... on to the next! :)

My kids don't really know any different! They've always been here with Lady and the fresh food and water and loving affection, but I know what it's like to have to live in fear and fend for myself. ... She can tell my appreciation goes extra deep, as my life is much improved now, from what it was just over a year ago! :)
Needless to say, another big change has been the addition of having my 4 kids! What wonderful kids they are, too! :)
Happy Birthday Apollo, Gerdy, Mick, and Sylvester! :)
Happy Birthday from me, too, who Cali and her kids (my Honey, if truth be told) call "Nice Nice Lady"! :)
