Lovely birds, gardens, and ants

With the lovely warm weather lately, my garden has been growing. I see the beginning of strawberries, and my snow pea plants have been peeping out of the soil.




We've also had some visitors to the garden. A lovely bird that kindly took care of the ant problem.






... and the neighbor's cat.




I tended to my section of the mostly overgrown communal garden. And enjoyed sorting marigold seeds.







I found the rusted look of one of my garden ornaments to be quite pleasing to the eye.





And I was delighted to see my carrot (remember the carrot from my room?) growing very well indeed!





I wouldn't say my avocado plant, which I grew from an avocado seed last year is an eye-sore, but it might be time to save another avocado seed...





I hope you had a great weekend!

You're quite the green thumb too, Blaze! I can't wait to see how your garden turns out.
