Saturday the yard got mowed (woohoo:)
(Taylor-the yard mower, even commented on the amount of weeds growing wild in the yard)
And I went out to see which rose was going to bloom first (also to touch their leaves and tell them how special they are), out of the corner of my eye, I saw a flash of RED.
My heart jumped!
I quickly went to see what it was!!!
Red Petunias! (the shadow makes them look variegated, but they are solid red:)
I planted this as a sad little dying plant last fall.
I've seen the petunias in bloom on the web, and the wild ones at my mom's.
But petunias don't do well for me (even though I keep trying them:)
While checking it out, and telling it how pretty it is, something jumped out, and landed in the tall grass.
Afraid it was a toad (and would be mowed over by the lawnmower) I checked and found a little bird.
It had all of its feathers, and preceded to jump away from me...
Over the edge of the boat, over the boat, into the flowerbed, under the water hose container.
Later I saw it's parent feeding it.
Since I don't have any cats outside right now, it may have a chance.
I don't know what kind it is (maybe a chickadee?), and I'm trying to leave it alone (however, I may have to go peek later:).
What could be more exciting than surprise red petunias?
Surprise red petunias leaves hiding a darling baby bird!!
Happy Bloomin' Tuesday!
