This and That In The Garden

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

Well for the longest time I have always had snails in my garden. About a month ago it just dawned on me that I hardly ever see any snails ever!! So I didn't think anything about it. Until one day I noticed something was getting in to my baby tears ground cover, it grows nice and thick and soft and green. I love this ground cover. Anyway then another day I noticed something was eating my bird seed that I have all covered up. Well you tell me what would you rather have in your garden a cute snail like this or~~~~~~~~~~~~


a possum as cute as these guys ??? Well I am undecided but I think I would rather run into a snail rather than a possum!



Here is a Anemone, I have a couple of these awesome flowers. They come up every year and spread. The flower is almost ready to bloom. I hope my camera decides to work when they do bloom. They are so pretty.
I found this birs house/feeder for only $6.00 I had to have it.



I put it outside so I can see it when I walk by my window and look outside. I have a battery operated candle in it. It looks pretty at night



Here is another picture of the anemone and my babytears, and boston ivy growing on my house. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Thank-you for stopping by.

I LOVE this bird feeder~ I can just imagine it's soft glow at night. I'd be peekin' out the window all the time looking at it.

Your garden is just amazing.

All is so pretty. I have moved some feeders near one of my windows and I am so enjoying it. YOur little bird house is so cute!

Snails or possums? I guess I'd take the snails but I sure don't like them. We had a lot of snails and slugs in Stockton. Not here - guess it's too hot for them. I really like the bird feeder, and the candle in it is such a neat idea.

Wow, great deal on the bird feeder. I love it.

I think I would prefer the snail over the larger 4 legged critter.

Ginger, could you please email me at jackielou01@hotmail.com. Had computer problems and needed to change my address. I would like to see if it works.

God bless.

Your garden looks so beautiful! I love baby tears too! That bird feeder looks perfect where you put it. It just looks so tranquil out there!

Ginger, I love your garden. It looks so lush. I am not familiar with baby tears. But, I love it and will look into what zone they are used in. The birhfeeder is adorable. Hugs, Terrie

Ginger,
Your garden is so lovely. I'm looking forward to fall but
not the thought of snow covering all the pretty gardens.
Hugs,
Sue
