Gardening Tales

Seemed everyone had something on their mind? When I got home, I stepped outside to check on my garden.. was when I noticed one of the Myna's missing?
You may recall a post I did of the bed below full of Walking Blue Iris..
This is the last of them
A troublesome flat in the wheel barrel was finally fixed thanks to my husband!
Here is the empty bed..only it really doesn't look so big here, yet it was actually 
18x4' before I extended the width over the last week. It's raised with lava rocks..and lucky most of it was in place from a few years back when I had a  lot more energy!!

Pictured below are two of my son's donkeys..they not only mow all of his grass, but he brought me a couple of nice buckets of manure for the mix-

Back to the missing Myna..
I peeked in the wheel barrel and he
 seemed to have a pretty good idea who it might be!
Ya, well this one wasn't saying anything..
And she only wanted to play with her Flippy Flopper!
Just when I thought the worst..he strolls up?

Blue Iris..sigh***so beautiful to walk by and yet so peaceful!
Does the donkeys have a name? They look like twins, walking together..sweet!
Is that your cat? I love cats...
You're so lucky to have nature embrace you than the other way around!! Preserve and continue to nourish Mother Earth and her life like this!!

Those creatures in your garden of Eden seem to have figured out free agency and choice---not answering to anyone unless it pleases them. Hehe.

I love your organic lawn mowers who come bring their own fertilizer. I'd guess you may have problems with them getting a little close to the flowers with their edge trimming.

I'm glad Mr. Myna was just off whistling up some grub and had not become compost in the making.

Where is the myna, do they fly wild outside, was it a pet in a cage? Beautiful header, why WALKING iris? Did they get up and walk out of that flower bed?

I don't know why I could not post comment on your blog. In some I did.
I leave my warm hug and thanks for the many beautiful and moving posts you make.
Sweet kisses and love.

Oh my... donkeys?! I didn't know, or did I forget in my elder age (smile)? They are darlings! I love this entire post. Also, from your post today - I'm sorry you've had a blue day. Things will get better!! I will anxiously await your beautiful posts upon your return ;) Cheers! -Tammy

Beautiful photos and fun to see with the critters.

Let's be perfectly clear- the war on free speech is spiritual!
