And a chickadee in a pear tree

We have hanging baskets, and we have a front garden, 
but we are low on trees.

I've looked, but even in the Charlie Brown section, they are pricey.
Look what we found last weekend.

It came home with the top extending out a front seat window.

Laura dug as big around as the branches and deeper than the pot.
There are two bags of good dirt in there.

They call it "soil" at the nursery.


One morning I stepped out the door, and the leaves were rustling.
I looked and looked, and then found the chickadee.

Such cheeky little fellows. 
I didn't disturb it a bit.

It hopped across the branches and onto the railing, to take a good look at me.
Then up to the crook, and with a final Phoebe, off it went.

  4. So glad you planted an edible tree. Nothing better. I wish I'd have planted acres of nut trees years ago. Nice income from them.

  10. Making itself right at home - wonderful! And yes, trees are pricey. But then again, they've been growing for awhile before we buy them. I guess it works out.

  13. The tree and the hanging basket look good in their location. Much nicer to have chickadees and other birds visit now that they have a place to visit.

  14. I must be feeling a bit dense this morning. I wondered how people knew what the tree was until I read your title again. We grew a pear tree from a pip once but panicked when it grew too big. I'm afraid it became compost.

  21. Probably a good luck sign that chickadee.

    Keep that tree very well watered and it should do well.

    1. That's lambie, the concrete garden ornament from the old house. Also on the steps are toad and frog. The auctioneer who took a lot of possessions to auction wanted them badly. They are aged and weathered and just lovely. I turned him down.
