A new neighbor in my Garden




This weekend I noticed a new neighbor in my garden, a Red-Bellied Woodpecker moved into a nest in the trunk of an old Palm tree.

The past week has been a busy time for me, very little time for gardening or bloging. Work is crazy, my daughter is graduating from college tomorrow and this time of the year I organized a neighborhood garage sale this coming Saturday.

The only gardening I did this weekend was planting several Cannas Lilies bulbs I purchased on the Internet from easytogrowbulbs.com.

Do you sell plants at your garage sale? I love to go to a gardener's garage sale!

I always love seeing woodpeckers. There is something very majestic about them.

Love the woodpecker! We have one that comes to hangs out on our Schefelleria sometimes. Steals sunflower seeds sometimes too.

Love the pictures. We have some mexican woodpeckers here who come and actually manage to drink out of our hummingbird feeders. They have figured out that if they perch on it they over balance the feeder, so they perch on the tree branch and reach way over to get their long beaks into the feeder. It is funny to watch the upset hummingbirds zooming around the woodpeckers while they are drinking. A funny and amusing sight to watch.

Rusty, your garden is not only beautiful but kind to woodpeckers too! How nice to have an old palm that is user-friendly habitat for the birds. Lucky you!
