Critters in My Garden ~ Spring 2015

Regardless of the season, there are always critters in my garden. I often share pictures with you as part of my weekly garden updates. However, it seems it’s been quite some time since I shared a post with all my garden critters together. So, I hope you enjoy the spring edition of critters in my garden.

Birds Galore!

I am just amazed at the number of birds I’m getting at my back yard feeder. Ever since I changed the type of bird seed I use, my feeder has been a busy place in the mornings and evenings. (And even during the middle of the day, sometimes.) I bought a 20 pound bag of Garden Treasures Songbird Blend at Lowes for about $20 about a month ago, and it’s almost gone already. I bought another bag this past week, so I won’t run out. I don’t mind, though, because the birds are giving me such pleasure. Birds galore!

Sanctuary Gardener Update ~ 3/30/15

This was surely a week of extremes here in the Charleston, SC, area….again. I was quite concerned yesterday that I would wake to a late frost, but thankfully, the temperature dropped only to 35 degrees. Whew! I have a lot of new growth on my raspberries, elderberries, herbs, and even my grape vines. Plus, I’m beginning to harvest my asparagus. A frost would not have been good for the tender leaves. Fortunately, all is well in my Sanctuary Garden. Come take a look. This week’s garden photos!
