the garden lighthouse

This cute little garden lighthouse is solar powered and the light on its top revolves when it becomes dark. It is very cute!Hopefully it will scare away the wildlife that visits our garden at night, after dark., like white-tailed deer and raccoons and skunks. One day last week a porcupine strolled through our yard in the daylight hours.! I wasn't home at the time to get its picture.

Hummingbird season, They are everywhere

This female Ruby-throat ed Hummingbird came and perched in front of my window as I was having my morning coffee.  It stayed, and stayed and stayed.  Aslo while there a male with its red throat came to feed from one of the feeders there.  and a beautiful gentle looking Gray Catbird stoped by for a visit.  I didn't get a picture of the gray Catbird but it will probably be back.  We have a large amount of wild Rose bushes that Catbirds favour and one year a pair nested there. We could hear their" meows" all that summer in our garden as the catbirds perched on our fence daily..

Yard Sale Treasures.

It seems that the theme of these treasure finds today is that of lighthouses.  I think they are both delightful!.  The first at the top is a hummingbird feeder found by my daughter and grandson.  Luckily for me they gave it to me.  I have filled it with sugared water and it is now awaiting its first hummingbird visitor.  I hope I get to see one soon and maybe get  a picture of it.(Success!, no I didn't get a picture but my husband just told me a female hummingbird was feeding at the lighthouse feeder.  Great! How wonderful!( Now to  catch her  feeding there with my camera . The female hummingbird came back!



and the hummie likes the lighthouse feeder.!!!!  That is good news.  better pictures to come on another day.  Stay tuned!  
.)  The second little treasure find today was of a
model sized lighthouse  erected on a driftwood base.  This little found treasure I gave to my grandson who loves lighthouses.  Looking at it makes me yearn to go beach combing and to find some seaside treasures.  I really like the overturned beached boat(dory) on the driftwood shore. If you like this theme of yardsale finds why not check back here next Saturday to see what else we have  found!

"Go Canadiens!" for Ruby Tuesday
