I set the sprinklers up
when I came home
from my morning walk.

I will move them every forty-five minutes.

The Tawny Emperor came onto my shoulder.
I am not a good food source.
I try to make sure some water lands on the rocks and the bricks for the butterflies.
My little puddlers are also filled for them.

The Pearl Crescents
nectar on the clover
and in the miniature snap dragons.

I am playing with shade guards and filters.
It is very sunny today.

Mother nature is generous to us!
Look how calm that butterflies are, how pretty the plants you grow with your talent hands.

Sherry, you are doing a fine job with your filters and such. That photo of sprinkler drops is so very pretty! You are having a marvelous time. Top down, A/C on, cruising for more seed... :o)

Dear Cadence,
Mother Nature is generous.
All we need to do is be respectful.
I try to plant some seeds inbetween her plants.
I garden with the moon and the wind and the birds.
Thank you for stopping by.
I am looking forward to reading your journal.

Dear Mary,
Thank you.
A long and wide learning curve here! I will stay on it.
The Sprinklers are fun for the birds too. I wanted to see how well I could do droplets with shade guard and filter.
I will resume watering this morning.
It takes awhile to get around all the beds.
Maybe I will get some birds today.

Dearest Sherry,

The water droplets are so magical! Ooo, and there is much to be seen in these photos.

Very nice.

Peaceful feelings,

Dear Sprite,
The Water Spirits!!!
I love them. They are magical...
My yard is full of flight;
Fairies dancing in the sunlight and on the moonbeams.
Sprites holding council in the trees and in the bushes.
Flower Fairies calling the butterflies and the bees.
Oh, and the shadows....
That is where I reside.
