The Oriole feeder has been out for a few days and this morning we had the pleasure of a visitor looking for a sweet treat. The picture was taken through the window, so it won't be winning any prize in a photography contest. I'm not pleased with this feeder, bought it last fall on a clearance table at Mill's Fleet Farm. Maybe I can find a nicer one at the Green Bay Botanical Garden's 25th Annual Garden Fair coming up in early June. There will be over 100 vendors selling plants, garden art, landscape ideas, garden demonstrations & presentations, music and food.
This is the new birth bath I bought at Stein Garden & Gifts for $19.99. It's been out there for a couple of days and no birds, so far. Maybe they don't like cheap garden tubs.
Phillip and some of his classmates had the opportunity last evening to read poetry at one of the local coffeehouses. They had so much fun and practically knocked each other over hurrying to the microphone. Their teacher encouraged them to dress in black and wear a beret in order to look more like poets. Not many kids around here own berets, so Phillip wore his winter skull cap.
Saw this pretty yellow Hibiscus at the coffeehouse and couldn't resist taking its picture. I've never owned a Hibiscus and so to be sure about its identity, I did a google search. Found out that Hawaii's State Flower is the yellow Hibiscus. Good choice!
