When there were visitors

8 Jun

It was my birthday folks and along with lots of happiness and good wishes my way. There also came a flurry of unexpected visitors to the potted gardens. Each one of them brightened the garden, added their share of excitement, colour and love to my babies. 

The colourful beetle stole my heart.



An unexpected shoot and a tiny seedling germinates to give me a birthday surprise.


And a lil pigeon scurrying around enjoying her stroll and perch.



And finally, look who decides to smell the flowers: Waiting for my own furry baby  though.



So long folks, lots of exciting gardening projects in the pipeline. cant wait to share them with you.

    Happy birthday! And thank you for choosing to follow my blog. I’m not at all the gardener you are, but I share your love for nature. Wonderful photo of that little beetle — we have a ladybird (or ladybug, both names) here that looks something like that, and it always makes me smile.

      Thank you. Nature always makes me smile and brings love to my surroundings.

    First of all a belated happy birthday and second thanks for the beetle pic. I am very fascinated by the beetles, in my younger days I was know as beetle man. You brought out the old memories!!!
