Oh, hello! I was so busy I didn't see you standing there!
You know, working at a nature center has many benefits. Besides the pleasure of the company of others enjoying the same work and a feeling that you are contributing to the beauty of the park, a big plus is that you get a lot of freebies! Seems like every time I go in to work I leave with another something. Whenever they have more starts than they need they tray them up and leave them in the break room for whoever wants them. I've accumulated so many starts that I've had to pot them up and line my deck with them. I have coral bells, dill, verbena, a trumpet vine that I bought, and last week I came home with a sack full of dwarf iris in a variety of colors! I've already found places to put the iris but the rest is out here awaiting their new space when I find it.
I keep a pan of water here on the corner of the deck railing as a little bath for the birds. It sits just behind my butterfly bush that is bursting with blooms and I can see all this from my kitchen door.
Well, I've got to get back to work now.
Come again when you can stay a little longer and I'll show you what's new.
