I inherited Mr. CF's iPhone4s which is lovely, mostly because of Instagram. I'm not much of a texter, but I do like my photos. I needed to nip out into the rain to test it out. So here I am in the shade garden.
Exhibit A: Piece 2 of recently transplanted 45 year old bleeding heart. Doing lovely, and blooming, as are pieces 1 & 3.
Exhibit B: Assorted perennials in bloom and not, in early stages of growth with minimum warmth this spring from Mother Nature.
Exhibit C: Dust Bath Soup. I love this "ceement" birdbath which was bought with gift money from a dear friend, Miss Mo. It did not want to hold water this spring so I used it to make something I've always wanted: a birdy dust bath. One part loam, one part sand, one part ashes. I had great visions of our feathered friends stopping by to have a safe and warm dust bath in a picturesque and cozy setting. A quick bite at a feeder and then they could hop on over to the fountain for a refreshing drink and a dip.
It has been raining for a week on and off (mostly on) and now I have soup. The dang thing now wants to hold water and I have a muddy mess to deal with when the rain stops.
Instagram doesn't reveal such secrets, it just makes photos fun in a jiffy. I'm liking my new toy much more than I'm going to like dealing with that great idea I had for a dust bath. Have a wonderful weekend!
