Today I am sharing a soft summery card put together using two gorgeous Pion Design collections, "Legends of the Sea" and "The Songbird's Secret". The soft blues are so perfect for a shabby garden creation!
Legends of the Sea - Sea Grass PD9004
Legends of the Sea - Go West PD9002
Legends of the Sea - Borders PD9012
The Songbird's Secret - Nesting Birds PD8401
The Songbird's Secret - Apple Blossom PD8409
It's been busy busy busy around here, as we've been tearing apart the crappy setup we had outside and building a gorgeous garden patio that I can't seem to get enough of!! I'm still working on switching out all of the furniture and fixing little things here and there for the squirrels and birds, so no photos yet... but I can't wait to share it with you when it's done!

I'm so excited to see a little colour in my tree out front. Seems my tree is the very last one to bloom around here! The birds love it too, like this wee Chickadee.
This bird is especially exciting to catch a glimpse of. It's an American Sparrow, but it's a Piebald. Basically that means, it's part Albino (a form of leucism). It's a super rare thing to see one, and I can't believe my good fortune to get a shot of this beauty!
"I am quite busy Madam, so please take your photo quickly and then be gone, shall we."
"Yuckkkkkkk! I think I accidentally ate some healthy food! Give me peanuts human!"
"Stop fiddling with the camera and take the picture already! I can't hold this pose for much longer, I'm getting a charley horse!"
Does everyone remember my summer baby last year, named JUNIOR? Well it seems I finished the patio just in time because this little guy has made himself right at home in the corner behind some stumps.
Everybody say hello to this year's summer baby...
MICKEY (like Mickey Mouse)
Oh, I can't wait to see what sort of antics he gets up too this summer!
I have someone very special to introduce to you today. Everyone knows my best bud Crazy Karen right? Well this is her little daughter. So far, Karen has only brought her around when it's still dark out, so I don't have any great pics yet, but I still want you to meet her
Say hello to the cutest little version of Karen EVER...
Oh my gawwwwwddddd, the cuteness is killing me!!
For my macro today, a dandelion in the morning dew...
That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.
