Waste Disposal

Over time, we collected so many boxes from moving from one place to another. Now that hubs is retired and we are not looking forward to moving anywhere, we are starting to get rid of the boxes.
We loaded our truck with so many that could fit in there but we still have a lot.  The schedule of waste disposal is at the last day of working  days and we  are planning to make a trip again next month.
Hubby was confident  where the place is located so he did not use our GPS in going there.  Every time, we go for the first time to a place, we always end up getting lost lol.  We took the wrong exit and drove to a very rough road.
We found it on the other side of the mountain.  Dump sites for garbage here are much cleaner compared to my country.  Before you go to the dump site, you have to check in to this  office where they weigh your vehicle.  If you exceed the  maximum weight limit, you have to pay for it.
Our seller is still full of   original boxes and other stuff and that is our next  task to complete  next time.

Humming Bird's Visit

I have never seen a humming bird in my yard before but since I changed the the look of our backyard, a humming bird has visited me last Friday morning. I was so delighted to see it. I wasn't able to get a photo though.
I don't know what this flower's name is but bumble bee love them.  I am looking forward for the  humming bird to visit again.  I can't wait till my  trumpet vine bloom because according to what I have read online, it also attract humming birds.
PINK or BLUE?
For mellow yellow, here's my black eyed susan for you.
Thanks for visiting.

Bird's Food

I found a cheap food for the birds at Busy Beaver so I bough a set.  It says on the  package that it would attract wild birds.  The regular visitors at our backyard are sparrows, robins, and  starlings  but when I put the  food out, I saw  a bright colored woodpecker and  cardinals.  Too bad my camera is so slow that I wasn't able to capture them.
It is so nice to be able to sit in our porch swing and watch these critters enjoy   flying back and forth.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Orange Lily

There are so many kinds of lilies and this one I dunno what it's called.  One thing for sure, she's orange so I will call her Orange Lily hehehe.  Anyhow, I started this with three  bulbs from my FIL then if grows thicker each year.
These two shots here below were taken at my FIL's yard.
All the ones in my garden are now in full bloom.  I love their blooms, too bad it doesn't last very long.
