New Sign, Asparagus Ferns, Geranium, Blue Tea Cup


My new sign I received in the mail yesterday from our son, Dan for Mother's Day!!!  What a great surprise it was!  I have been wanting one for two or three years as that is what I call our little place.  I love it!!  I am one spoiled Mom!


Another view of it!


These are my asparagus ferns that I overwintered in our garage.  A bird (sparrow) built a nest in one of them.  This morning I noticed two birds in there and they didn't seem to be fighting.  This afternoon when I was out two birds flew out and I looked and two birds were still in the nest!  How could four birds be in that one nest?  The two left in the nest did not fly off and didn't look quite as large as a mature sparrow, but it seems too soon for the birds to hatch and be that large! Anyone have any theorys?



I planted a pink geranium and some alysum around the base of it in this pot.  I have another one just like it on the other side of the deck.  Energy level low today so didn't get as much accomplished as I would have liked! 



I did get some marigolds planted in my blue tea cup.  Not sure where they will be located!  It was a beautiful sunny day here a Cozy Thyme Cottage!

1. Happy Mother's Day! Your sign is very sweet.
2. I bet they are baby birds almost ready to fledge. They get fed so much they are often bigger than the parents by the time they fly for the first time. And birds really do cram in tight in nests.
3. Cute tea cup planter!
Do we love spring gardening or what?

Thanks Melissa for visiting and your knowledge about the birds. It just seemed too soon for them to be that large but time does fly when we are gardening, doesn't it! Come again. Nancy

~~Melissa said...

Hello again,
Sparrows fledge just 15 days after hatching. Could it have been that long?

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Wow Melissa! That is not very long for them to grow up! It could have been 15 days! Glad our babies don't grow up that fast! Thanks for finding that information for me. Come again and enjoy your birds and garden! Nancy

Those are lovely planters. They're going to spruce up the outside nicely.

Hi Nancy! Your sign is too cute! Sounds like you had a nice Mother's Day! I agree about the baby birds. They grow up very quickly! I love that blue tea cup planter! And your deck looks nice and spacious! My Early Girl tomato plant has a bloom! So do my Celebrity plants! I'm so excited about gardening this year! Glad that we can share! Blessings from Bama!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Thanks Stefaneener! I want everything to be in full bloom immediately so the planters kind of help brighten up while waiting for the perennials. Glad you came to visit. Hope you will come again. Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Bama Girl, Great to have another friend that is excited about gardening! Lucky you that your tomatoes are doing so well. Mine are still hanging in there. Our deck is really rather small but it doesn't look bad in the pictures!! Hope you will visit again!

love your new sign and that cute blue tea pot!!!!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Kathryn, Glad you could visit. We spend most of our time working in the back yard so it seems we don't do much in the front! The sign sort of brightens up the area with the watering can. Hope you will visit again. Nancy
