My Bird Feeders I love feeding the birds year round. We have a nice variety of birds in our yard because we have a ravine at the back with plenty of old growth forest. We get different birds coming through in the warmer months so I like to keep the feeders out to attract them as well as the year round birds. The feeders do more than attract birds though. They also attract rodents!
Hollyhocks I love hollyhocks! We used to live on a farm and the two large gardens beside the house were given over entirely to hollyhocks. It was a beautiful display during bloom time. When we moved to our current residence, I decided to plant a butterfly garden and bought a couple of hollyhocks for the back, along the fence. I really like the double flower varieties and picked out a buttery yellow one and a dark pink one.
