May Pops

The title of this post is a bit deceiving as I don’t have any May-pops in my garden, but I DO have things popping!

Can you guess what that is on the fence?

Miss Tinkle-belle pops in every morning and every evening for a handful of walnuts.

She has not growled at me yet!

I saw these cute little wooden bowls a a thrift shop in Michigan… 6 for $6.00!

I tried to convince one of the Capris to buy them, but no one was interested! I just couldn’t see leaving them there so I bought them, stuffed them in my carry on bag and flew them home with me! I planted them with Million bells and put them on this triangular, tiered candle holder that seems like it was just made for them!

How cute is that?!

Puff the quail pops a sweet little egg out every day… they’re tasty!

Now I’m going to pop outside and get some weeding done!
