My first poppy of the year has bloomed.
This post ended up being featured at Under the Table and Dreaming blog, to my complete surprise. A link button is in the margin.
You can see my thrifty birdbath in the backround. I used a plantstand that I found at Goodwill for $3 and then just set a pretty bowl that I already had on top of it. It works pretty good, I think I can live without that $60, big, beautiful, glazed, cobalt blue one now.
The goofy metal "crow" yard ornament was not suppose to be in the picture. You can see the yellow beak a little bit. After more poppies bloom I will remove it and take a better picture.
Not a really good picture here. It was too bright and sunny. This is a McCoy pottery bowl that goes with a pitcher I have. I think it works just great with the plant stand and I can't wait until all the poppies bloom. I've even spied some birds splashing in it.
And here's some of the little visitors we had this week.
I'm linking this to Sunday Showcase @ Under the Table and Dreaming. It's in the right margin.
