Working Wednesday

The Hummingbird Cottage is coming together nicely. We hung the hummingbird feeders up yesterday and Mommy planted some seeds in the hanging baskets so hopefully they will be ready to hang up soon.

We really likes the way Daddy did the entrances to the cottage.

Daddy still has to mortar the rocks, but they are all in place now.

In case you are wondering about how it got to this point. First he dug the dirts out, then he filled it with sand to keep the rocks from moving or sinking and then he added the rocks. He strung string to makes sure all the rocks are roughly the same height so he had to dig deep holes for some of the larger rocks.

We thinks when it is finished it will be lovely. Mommy got a Trumpet Honeysuckle to plant in one of the beds. She is looking for a Trumpet Vine (we wants either a red or a bright yellow) or a Chocolate Vine for the front bed. If you know where we can get one on the MS Gulf Coast please let us know. And guess what the roses have buds on them. They will be blooming soon.

If anyone is interested Daddy used Paver Sand.

Our Passion Vine came back up, it is suppose to have blue or purple flowers. We never had blooms last year so we don't know what color they are for sure. Mommy also planted some Moon Vine (white) and Morning Glory (blue) seeds in there. Last year caterpillars ate the Passion Vine before it got very big.

Mommy got the Trumpet Honeysuckle (red) planted, it is doing good.

Daddy worked very hard on the floor.

And was really happy to be finished with this part. He still has to mortar it.But he will have to wait until it isn't raining.
