Our New Friend

 Been Busy Busy here,but in good ways mostly.Look at this sweet visitor we have been seeing.He must have been someones pet as he is fairly tame..He gets along well with the animal mengerie and has made many friends....
 Got a funny story for you.Last week I got a case of food poisioning.(yep I knew there was a reason the restraunt menu was not in my phone book.LoL) So I was laying on the couch so I wouldn't disturb hubby much.He was sleeping in the bedroom.Well I hear this horrible racket from up in the loft.Banging then the cat chasing something.My first thought was to much old stuff drug up there must of bought a spook home.LoL..This was around 2 am.Thud Bang Thud Run. All of a sudden it came in the living room.Ahhhh it's a Bat!!!!! So I hit the floor and start screaming.Hubby comes in and see's me on the floor in his half sleep state and thinks I'm screaming because I'm sick.He doesn't even see the bat flying around in circles or realize I'm screaming BAT! Finally he looks up were I'm pointing and wakes up.He had to hit it down with a broom and throw a towel over it and throw it outside.It must have got in through one of the window screens.Uggh bats,snakes,spiders and stink bugs I can not stand....Got my bike basket planted....
 The plants will cascade down the front to the ground and are drought tolerant since I forget to water often..smile...
 My bucket garden is working out great..No weeding is going to be just wonderful!
 Already cutting lettuce and ready for the second planting of spring onions. Planted heirloom tomatoes one was called Abe Lincoln.Got 10 buckets total.Most planted from seed. Did a compact bush cucumber so it would grow better in the container.The only thing I'm not sure about is the zuchinni since it likes to trail but I'm thinking I can train it to grow up and along the fence.
Well the weekend was cold and windy but now the rest of the week is supposed to be 90's.Easing in to the lazy early weekdays and rush of the weekends (thurs-sun)..Been planning some day trips for the summer.I like campy little attractions and discovering small towns.We are lucky to be close to Gettysburg so plan on playing tourist alot.Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial day and hugged or thanked a military person for standing up for our country.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Awww the bunny is sooooo cute. I agree, someone's former pet since he is black.

Hate bats too. They would get in my grams house sometimes when I would be staying with her when I was little.

♥Love♥ your bike flower basket.


Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

EEEEK I don't like bats either. Funny thing though you are the second person I know that had a bat in their house in the same week?!?!

Ohhhhh the bunny is so sweet!!!!!! He found the right home :)

Day trips are fun! We had one yesterday.
Love your bucket garden but especially the bike basket!


Sandi @ The Primitive Skate said...

What a sweet bunny! Love the color.
Oh my, I hate bats. i remember when I was a kid, we lived in an old house. Always had bats in the house.
Love the bucket garden idea. I was thinking of doing a container garden this year. I better get going on it before Summer comes and goes and I don't have anything planted, Lol! Have a wonderful week!



Hi Amy,
Glad to see you are having a good week! That little bunny is so cute. Bats, snakes, mice...I hate them. When I see one of them, I seriously lock myself in the house. I am terrified of them. Your bucket garden looks wonderful, and I love the flowers in the bike basket. I haven't got much done outside, as we are remodeling the kitchen, and I just want to run away! What a job! Have a great week. Hugs,

I was working on paintings overnight once when I kept hearing a fluttering...I finally saw it and it was a bat swooping around..I screamed and hubby came running down half asleep. It was so funny..I'm screaming and he's running after the bat in his gutchies..finally got it out of the house..no idea how it got in! YUCK! Love the garden idea!--Jan

You can keep the bat ~ when we first moved into our old house we had a sh** load of them ~ it took a long time to get rid of them!!!

The bunny looks like a tame rabbit. I didn't get my bucket garden planted. The bat story!!!! Oh how scary. Your bike looks wonderful.

Denise said...

Awww, such a cute bunny. I love the basket on the bike.

Cyn said...

Bat? LOL..last summer hubby and I were swimming in our pool and one flew down and almost hit him in the head. I think they were trying to get a bug..lol.

Danice said...

Darling bunny. You got a great photo of him, also. Yes, food poisoning is such a sick of all sicks. 'Glad you are well now. Bats... they nearly scare me to death, lol!

Ugh I'm with you with bats and snakes and such. When I first moved to this house along the river, I a zillion bats in my attic. The previous owner never put screens up on the roof vents..boy it sure stunk. I use to have a bike basket...love your flowers! Good luck with the squash. Janice...cute bunny too!

Theresa said...

Amy your new visitor looks sweet...sure glad he adapted to wild life okay. Wow...a bat in your house...I don't mind them but I sure wouldn't want one flying around my house. Glad your hubby got him back outside.

the bunny is cute but watch your bucket garden. So sorry you were sick that is awful. Oh bats that is the on big thing along with snakes that creep me out. I know they have a purpose but eweee.
I love your bike basket.

Karen said...

Hi Amy....oh my goodness Bats! Had them in our 2nd rental house and that was more than enough for me!!!! Spooky little things aren't they.

Oh to have an old bike with flowers in the basket. Saw a neighbors yard with one in yesterday and I have envy!!! But bikes are not cheap because the craze has caught on.


Kendra said...

Our first house was infested with bats so I could tell you stories that would curl your hair...like the time we newlyweds left the house screaming in our underwear at midnight only to have the police drive by...lol! Those were the days.

I bet you're thinking--who is this strange person, commenting on my post. Sorry to be so sporadic in visiting. Life is just so busy right now.
Love the bunny--looks like a pet has been released to live on his own or has escaped! Seriously, a beautiful bunny.
Love your bucket garden. I convinced Mike to plant his peppers in containers this year but he still has his regular garden, too, but much less than before. I got another 5' of it for flowers! We just don't need so many veggies and it is hard to keep up with. Right now, he is mowing 3 times a week! It has rained so much!
Love your bicycle basket; very cute.
Best wishes for your summer schedule. I can only hope we get a couple day trips in, too. We also love the small, out-of-the-way places.
Enjoy, Sweetie!
