Country Garden/Rural Thursday

 Colourful birdhouses adorn a tree, King Township, Ontario

We couldn't just drive by this! We turned around to take a second look and take some photos.

 More than a tree with birdhouses

It's a garden with....

 Closer look at the fence

 much attention to detail, even a hanging basket on the fence.  So much detail, in fact,

 On the other side of the fence

that I tiptoed (SHHHH) down the driveway to take a closer look. And with my telephoto lens,

Gladioli and zinnias

got even closer.

Thank you for visiting my site. I would also certainly stop and take a photo myself at this tree filled with birdhouses! This is indeed extraordinary and the flowers too, they are all beautiful!

Would you like us to follow each other? Take care :D

Such a beautiful garden! I really love the tree!

LONDONLULU said...

Haha, this is all the argument one needs for telephoto lens - wonderful captures and a lovely close-up 'sneak-in' on those beauties! Everything's so bright and cheery :)

Sandra said...

love that tree and love that fence

Lowell said...

A very visitable place! Lots of good stuff to look at. I hope the birds don't come home a bit tipsy, though, 'cause they could easily fly into the wrong birdhouse with dire consequences! Have you ever seen a really mad ol' hen?

Nancy Claeys said...

That's pretty enough to be a postcard, or a puzzle picture. Lovely rural scene.

Andy said...

This is a fun posting. With all that free housing and a garden close by, it must be a great place to raise baby birds.

Malyss said...

There's a lot of love in this garden! It looks like a fairy tale's garden!

Randy said...

I like the multi-dwelling tree.

Very colorful birdhouses and garden! Someone loves color in his/her birdhouses and flowers. Beautiful.

Viola said...

Lovely bird houses, with great colors.. but.. are not some of the holes too big?

Beautiful photos also! and especially I like the closeup of the flowers! :)

Island Rambles Blog said...

what a wonderful place you found...I am the same as you...I try to sneak into places and take photos too!!

George said...

The tree holds an amazing collection of colorful birdhouses, but that garden is really something special. What a great place for a photographer.

Daniel LaFrance said...

Great find! Good thing a dog wasn't tip-toeing towards you or a mean donkey.

Photography bliss! Good for you.

Hi Fellow Photo Meme participant, Just a quick note to let you know that starting tomorrow, I will begin hosting a new photo meme on my blog. Please come join me at "Orange You Glad It's Friday", and post a photo displaying a little or a lot of orange, my favorite color! Hope to see you there!

SandyCarlson said...

Somebody's got a great outlook on life with all those great birdhouses. What fun. Thanks for these pictures.

Susan said...

What a wonderful place you found. Someone loves their garden and works hard for it.

Rita said...

Wow! What a find you have here. You should go back and link up to Friday Fences, Color Connection and Friday Flowers. Everyone of the visitors to those memes would love seeing this as well.

Great Captures all.

Rita said...

I forgot to mention that is some amazing old tree. The size and all the knots accented with those birdhouses is marvelous.

see you there! said...

What a fantastic garden. Love the bird houses on the tree.
