Tuesday Display Chain - Mary, Mary How does your Garden Grow?

For Misi's last in the present series of Tuesday Display Chain, the theme is 'Mary, how does your garden grow?'
Let me introduce you to Mary my faceless prairie doll who loves gardening

- she's not a bit like me... I can pot some pre-grown plants and mow the lawn and even pull weeds but that's my limit unfortunately.
The sun has come out this afternoon after heavy rain and thunder but look how refreshed the front lawn looks now!

These trees are in full leaf now
I took this shot early in the morning - can you spot the little robin red-breast on the branch? There are several couples nesting nearby and their twittering is lovely to listen to.

Those little robins better keep an eye open for Mitzi our neighbor's cat! She comes over to me during the day for some company.

I've enjoyed participating for the last few weeks in the display chain and want to thank Misi for organizing it so well.
Make sure you stop by her blog and check out all the other posts this week! Click here
Thanks so much for your visits and comments too!
Best wishes and hope you enjoy your garden!
