White Petunias and Pink Impatiens

I love white Petunias--I think they highlight other plants of color.  I planted them among some other flowers that needed some "white."   I had an empty pot and white Petunias left over, so I combined these with bright pink Impatiens and planted them together today.  They are so pretty-looking.  I put them up on my brick wall so "everyone" could enjoy them.

Spring Roadside Flowers

Here we go doing Roadside Wildflowers again....the Phlox are so pretty among all the green on the Road sides right now.  Even spotted a few Daisies on the way home today.  The Dandelions have come and gone (to seed) already.

Hooray for Wrens!

Our House Wrens arrived today--constant singing and going in and out of the Wren House with twigs.  They were very, very busy (active) all day today.  This evening the singing and busy-ness settled down.  They were probably exhausted and needed to "eat."  I hope they are planning on using "our" little birdhouse because it is so fun to watch them tend to their little flock.  I'll keep you posted.
This is last year's wren house.....I bought a new one up in Petoskey, MI last summer and  the wrens seem to take to it right away.  I will post a watercolor of that one soon.
The Rose-Breasted Grossbeak also arrived today and I saw our first Hummingbird.  Didn't get much done today because I was focused on the birds.  :-)  :-)  :-)   Enjoy!
