A while back, it was quite evident that a rabbit had first eaten and then dug up a small bush I had planted. Since there were more holes but no more casualties, I figured all was well. A few days later--and for many days after--there were no more deep holes, but many small indentions in the ground. I really didn't think about them until Hubby motioned for me to look out the window today, I had my answer to the small holes. Birdie dirt baths!
Hubby pointed out this 'stuff' growing on a log used as a railing. It's rather interesting and pretty but I have no idea what it is--I just know it's not lichen or any moss that I am familiar with. If any of my bloggy friends knows, I'd love to know what it is.
We don't get to Pukeiti Gardens very often--mostly because it's down some very winding narrow roads but it was too sunny over the weekend to sit home so we ventured out there, They are making some interesting upgrades to the park, 3 years' worth, so we might have to visit a little more often.
It is too early for the rhodos to be out in all their splendor and beauty yet, but we did manage to get some spring color,
As you may know, we rent a house one end of a dairy farm with the actual working barns at the other end. Because of that, the cows don't come to 'visit' (read-graze) the pastures at our end very often, So, when they do, I get the camera out.

We went to Hollard Gardens for the first time in a few weeks and these quince blossoms (thanks Nicole/Frau Frieda!) is one of many lovely flowers I found. I will post more later.
I've been keeping an eye on the first tulip to bloom in my garden, Below is a photo from a post a few days back.
This is about a week ago, and
this is how it looks now. I find it quite pretty in each stage.
Although I am content to tend to my garden and watch it grow, I do get out occasionally and look at other stuff. Yesterday was so sunny and pretty that Hubby and I went for a ride around the countryside. I found these guys taking in the sun.
