Stunning composition, and a very beautiful place in the garden. I love hydrangea but they do not grow here. I really like this image.

@Barbara: Thanks, Barb; they are all shriveled up from the heat (no amount of water would save them).
Can't wait to see the birds it will attract.

Lovely place for the birds (and the human :))

Avoir un petit nid douillet dans un si bel environnement, ils sont gâtés les petits oiseaux !!! J'aime la couleur intense des verts.

Beautiful, if this is your back yard, then you are quite lucky and so is any bird family who rents there!

Oh dear... last time saw the bird house was so many years ago. You've refreshed my memories, Jack.

nice texture of the skin of the tree. is this a nest for a bird?
30 Jul 2009 10:02pm
@Vanilla Wine: To be honest, I don't think that any birds are using it right now; we keep hoping.
Lovely garden shot Jack.....hope someone moves into the house soon!!
30 Jul 2009 10:16pm
@Susan: Thanks; you must be back!!
Beautiful & lush!
Your quote today is very thought provoking and so true in my mind...
For one, it makes me glad that I have good, steady employment. And also- I am reminded how many of us do not, right now...I have so much food in my pantry, I think it is time for a trip to the food bank. :)
30 Jul 2009 11:35pm

@Claudia: It's in the southeast area of our property, right outside of the window where I sit in my recliner (see tomorrow's shot and the response to Karine).
Beautifully framed with excellent exposure and colour. Nice one! :)
