Springtime at Nana's

in the wild garden
Since we've been in the "fairy" mood over here, I thought I'd soften and make this one look like a dreamy, little fairy garden. Actually, it's nana's garden, which looks so lovely right now, with the flowers growing like crazy and the birds at the feeders chirping their little hearts away with happiness at being able to come to such a lovely little haven where they are fed everyday!
bird houses in springtime
Everywhere you turn, there are birdhouses, bird feeder, baths, and decorative ornaments, most having been purchased at local thrift stores or built by my dad.
Garden potting bench
This potting bench, having been built by my dad from an old dresser picked up either curbside or a yard sale, and embellished with lovely little trinkets and finds.

everything's in bloom

The flower bushes have overgrown everything and created nice little shady spots for our garden friends, the lizards, the finches and hummingbirds.
Bittersweet and sadly, the grass is growing in green and lush, as our poor Sophie, my mom and dad's dog of 13+ years has passed. She will be sorely missed but remembered everytime we visit nana's garden. Sophie, we love you and hope you live on in spirit in Nana's little corner of heaven.
I'm sharing this with Mother May I for Best shot Monday. Go check it out for some sunshiney love!
