Diane LaSauce has created a welcoming environment for feathery friends.
"Hi GPOD readers, I wanted to share a photo of the three week old Eastern Bluebirds' first bath. They are from the second clutch this year. Rather amusing, they seemed surprised following all the splashing…and one Red Belly woodpecker brought her offspring to the feeder too. Notice those talons…better to climb! I adore feeding my custom food mix to the wild birds that visit. (See my recipe on my blog). And of course lilies (Casa Blanca) are outstanding this month, as are the hostas and phlox (Davidii). With a heat index in the triple digits now, I am happy to see any blooms here in central Virginia. Check out my garden blog at https://dianelasauce.wordpress.com for tips, recipes, and endless photographs…Happy Summer!"
