Nesting Season

I’m not as discipline  in posting as I used to be, and it seems like I’m catching up in posting my photos.  Some of these photos were taken almost three weeks ago,  but I guess posting it late is better than never.

It’s nesting season for the birds in our area, this mother Robin built her nest in my Ivy patch on the lower right hand side.

The Ivy is beautiful, but it’s a nightmare when it does take off.  It’s also climbing the big tree in back of the garden.  I do want to save this big tree, and will have to remove the Ivy vines after the robin eggs hatched.

It’s a perfect spot for the nest, I just hope the mother Robin will get used to me gardening every evening.

My bok choy is flowering, I still have a few to harvest.

My blueberry bushes are flowering, this one I only see a few flowers.

And they are beautiful.

Another nest is in my front porch, and this one is a Dove. The mother Dove is not used to us going in and out of the house and she is easily scared.

I don’t know if it’s in the water, Bo’s Jack Dempsey laid another batch of eggs.  Bo had to rush about 40 mature Jack Dempsey to the pet shop before they eat all the eggs.

My sister’s lovebird also laid 3 tiny eggs, but we are not sure which one is the mother since she doesn’t sit on her eggs. As I was writing this post it darned on me that I didn’t take a picture of the eggs.

The Cherry blossoms were taken at my dad’s house about 2-3 weeks ago.

Crab apple blossoms

Pear blossom

I do miss Biltmore Estate tulips, and need to plant some in my garden.  My sister planted hers 2 years ago, and they come up every year.

Photos were taken with 5DMkIII, Canon 24-105mm f/4L lens , and EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens.

  1. Welcome to my world.. hahhaha That’s what I used to say… “better late than never”… At this point, it is almost impossible for me to catch up with all my blogs. I have so much pictures to blog about.. Just this past weekend, I took over a 1000 pictures.

  2. Beautiful garden updates. Love the pic of the mother Robin and the lush climbing ivy patch. I am surprised to see they grew so fast.

    • Thanks Cn, I have to trim it back, otherwise it will take over the garden especially the Mint planting bed. I can’t believe a small plant can spread this fast.
