Baby Bird Update

We now have 3 baby birds instead of 3 eggs. Momma and Daddy cardinal have been working so hard to keep their family fed. Kerry and I know how that goes! Spring and summer are slim times for the Culbreth family. But we always manage :)

Birds Nest update

It turns out that this nest is a cardinal nest! Very exciting! My husband saw Mom sitting on the nest this morning. Happy mother's day momma!

Birds Nest

Was working in the back yard yesterday evening and was prunning our Lilac. The previous owners of the house planted a climbing rose bush right next to the lilac and over time the two have intertwined. As I was trimming, I noticed a birds nest woven into the rose bush. I tried my best to snap these pictures, but the thorns were pretty thick. After this pics and showing the kids, we left it alone so Mom could come back and sit on those eggs!

Beauty in the Backyard

What a georgous evening! Couldn't help but get out and do some work in the garden (even though I really should have been working :) As the sun moved into it's evening position, I snapped some pictures. Such solitude can be found in the garden this time of year. And the beauty! Amazing!

4 pounds of Love!

This is Olive. She is our little dog. We love her just as much as we do the kids. She was just busy being loved while we watched TV the other night. How cute is this?!

Rain Rain Go Away!

It's raining again today. The garden needs the rain, but it's supposed to be pretty all week... while I'm working and unable to play in the dirt :( Awell, shouldn't complain. We had such a beautiful day on Friday... Anyway, I made this several months ago when I was trying to get into art journaling. I was taking a class by Pam Carriker and was inspired by this picture of my older brother. As I was looking through my pictures I came across it and thought it would be an appropriate post for the day. Enjoy!

The Topiary

This has been swirling around in my mind for the past week. So this morning I made it. Rainy this Saturday morning. The flowers are loving it, but so are the weeds... but nothing I can do about it right now, so I'll play with my art supplies.
