Alright Robin and all you bird watchers get
out the bird books because I have a new bird
that has been visiting this week and I do not know
what it is or if it is male or female.
I was so excited to get close enough to get a picture
of it at the birdbath that the quality of the pictures
are not very good, but I hope your can see it good
enough to help identify it.
There was also a new kind of yellow bird , maybe
a warbler of some kind, in the woods yesterday
while taking my tour around the yard. I went running
with the camera, as fast as an old fat woman can that is,
but I missed the shot and only got a blurry blob.
It is a very pretty light gray with a black head and
long black tail feathers on top. Under the tail the

On my flower check I really looked at this mess
and have to do something about it. Talk about
clashing colors. I am not going to keep this orange

The Brandywine tomatoes are getting so big
and I see a few in the middle that are starting
to turn. I cannot wait for some home grown
flavored tomatoes. This is the first year I
have tried Branywine and it is not the best
type for container gardening. The bushes were
almost six feet high and still growing so I had to
pinch the tops out to stop them from getting any
taller. They had out grown the wire cages and the
stakes. If they taste good I may try them again but
they will have to be put in a garden bed.
This post will have to end here because Photobucket
is doing maintenance so I cannot get into the pictures.
I know someone will help me with the new bird in town.
Happy Gardening Everyone!
