These pictures are a bit blurred as I took them at some distance from the birds and through a sun porch window that has been coated with a sun block film. I love the little gold finches and am thrilled whenever I spot them around the house. Margaret lets the thistle grow where ever it takes a mind too because the finches love it so much.
I told the grandchildern that the flowers liked to be talked to and they grew better and were happier if they felt love. Sophia took right to the idea and started talking to the day lilies just like she does to Cohen. She used her sweet baby voice and was asking them if they needed water and told them it would rain soon and that they were beautiful.
Aren't these hydrangeas beautiful? I believe they are the darkest blooms I have ever seen. These indoor pictures catch the deep blue color, but do not show how close to being a very dark purple they are.
Margaret has not been able to work in the garden much this year so a lot of the wild flowers are taking over. She gets pretty discouraged with herself when she sees how much work needs to be done. I feel bad for her and have great empathy as I know how it is when you are unable to work at your pleasure.
