Outdoor Wednesday!!!

Treys iPhone 106

This little bunny was sitting outside my front door. My son was coming down the stairs the

other morning and spied this little guy ( or girl ) sitting there. He took the picture with his

phone…he knew his mom would like this pic. We live in the middle of a big city and I am

always so excited by any kind of wild life in the yard!!! Sad, but true!!!

This is a freshly planted pot on my patio. I am in love with these caladiums!!! They are

such a pretty shade of green and a bright pink!!! LOVE THEM!!!

A new umbrella and bird house. The bird house is from Canton…a large flea market type

thingy in Texas. They have great stuff!!!

Another pot on the patio. It looks the same as the other…but I promise if you look closely

it’s a different pot.

I haven’t participated in Outdoor Wednesday in a while. It was fun sharing just a few little

goodies from my yard!!! Thank you to Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for hosting

Outdoor Wednesday!!! Be sure and stop by her site and check out the other participants

in this event!!!

Lots of Love!!!

Hi Cathy! Everything looks so pretty. I love seeing the bunnies. We have them in our yard alot.

Did you go to Canton last weekend? I'm dying to go's been awhile.

It was fun seeing your outdoor pictures. Love the caladiums. :)

Cathy, that bunny outside your window is just precious. I don't see as many as I used to, and I'm not sure why. I think wild bunnies are so precious! Love the pots of flowers and the new bird house from the Canton market. And I like your pretty green umbrella over your table! Looks like you are all set for summer!

Happy Outdoor Wednesday...

We had one in our backyard during Easter time. I haven't seen it around anymore though.

Have a wonderful evening.

How nice! I love those plants too :) What a sweet little bunny. We have one that lives in our front yard, well it comes out there every night and hangs out eating LOL.

All the best,

Sandra said...

Pretty plants! I love the bird house! I live in Texas but have never gone to Canton. My aunt goes all the time. I really need to go sometime. :) I'm sure i'd find a lot of great things.

SouthernGal said...

When I lived in Irving (Las Colinas) I had a friend who always went to Canton. She always found the best stuff. Love the pic of the sweet little bunny. Very cute.

Great picturt!Your pot as a lovely arrangement.

Crystal said...

Hi Cathy,
Your little bunny is so cute. I don't see as many anymore, I think my cats probably has something to do with that :( On the other hand we were overrun with chipmunks and don't really miss ALL of them.
Both of your pots are very pretty. I love the color of caladiums. It looks like you had a successful trip to Canton, that birdhouse is adorable.
Thanks for sharing!

Ashley ~ said...

Howdy from another Texas gal*! As soon as I saw the little brown bunny, I wondered if you were in Texas*! (not that there aren't a lot of little brown bunnies in every town):) My boyfriend lives in Coppell, and there are ALWAYS little brown bunnies in his yard. Everytime we see one, we call it Lola Bunny, so when I saw yours, the first thing I thought of was, there's Lola Bunny*!!! Oh, and Yes, I know all about First Monday in Canton. Love it*! _Ashley ~

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

I love your containers and those adorable caladium! I tried them once but they didn't seem to like the climate here :( I love those red splotches on the leaves!

Barb said...

Hi Cathy, I love your little rabbit friend...oh, how sweet. Your caladiums are lovely and that new umbrella is wonderful!!! So glad to see you in Outdoor Wednesday.

Hugs, Barb

Beth at Aunties said...

The bunny was darling! Your pots are so gorgeous!
The caladium is beautiful and one of my favorites! What is the beautiful shiny leafed plant in the center? So pretty... Your entrance to your front door looked so inviting I can see why the little fellow happened by your home. Your patio is also so welcoming and charming. Thank You for dropping by!


Amy said...

How sweet to see that bunny! Your plants are lovely too.

Beth in NC said...

I love your plants. They look so healthy! The umbrella is such a peaceful shade of green. Beautiful. ;o)

Maya said...

Just today there was a rabbit running in front of us on our power walk. We see them everywhere around here. Love all the greenery! So lush.

Maryrose said...

Hi Cathy,
Loved Mr or Mrs Bunny, thanks to your son for capturing that. I run in the park in the morning and the bunnies run for cover. Your pots are so beautiful and I am loving your caladiums too. I must look for some. Happy Outdoor Wednesday.
PS - I love your picture, you have such a warm smile.

Blondie's Journal said...


That little baby bunny is precious. If you look around a bit, you might find a little nest or hole around or under some shrubs. You can always tell by the bits of fur left in it. If you want to see more wildlie~plant a vegetable garden! LOL!! I have not seen a green bean on one of my plants since the neighborhood bunnies heard I had a garden! ;-)

I love your pots. I was wondering what the plant is in the middle with the caladium around it. The leaves are soooo shiny! It's very pretty.

Love your new umbrella and birdhouse. They look great together and probably make you want to get outside more! Happy OW!! :-)


Kathy said...

Happy outdoor Wednesday Cathy, I wish we had little bunnies around here, your is so cute, your pots look wonderful, pretty green umbrella and bird house, Kathy.

Ann said...

So cute ... a bunny on your doorstep.

Oh and the birdhouse is so charming.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Oh, I love the little bunny! I would have been excited too!

Unknown said...

We have a little bunny or maybe a family of them who live in our backyard and I leave carrots and lettuce out for them and always get excited when I see them or see that they've had a good dinner.
What precious little creatures.

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

What a sweet little bunny. I'm like you. In the middle of suburbia so any wildlife is a huge treat.
Those caladiums are beautiful. I think I'll stop at the local nursery and ask about some. I really like them

Becky K. said...

How very sweet that your son would take the bunny picture for you!

Very pretty planters you have made.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Brenda Pruitt said...

I love the combination of plants you've put in those pots. They all look wonderful together. And the bunny is priceless. I'm right across the street from bank construction. Yet a bunny comes out at night in my front yard.

Deb said...

Sharing with Sherri said...

Hi Cathy!

How SWEET that little bunny came to pay you a visit (and it not even Easter)! It must have been thinking this looks like a lush green place to find a bite to eat!
Your planters look so pretty! I love container gardening! I love how you put several plants in one container too!
Have a beautiful Day!!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

What an adorable little captured it with your camera! Perfect timing!
Everything looks gorgous! Your pots are doing so beautifully! A perfect Outdoor Wednesday post! I loved it! Where on earth did you find the pale green umbrella? MUCH prettier than tan..
Thanks for sharing this lovely post!

The bunny is so precious and what a sweet son to take the picture for you! We don't have any cute wild bunnies here in our big city - just raccoons and opossums to do damage. :-(

Your pots look gorgeous! Great idea!

Hi Cathy,
So nice to meet you! Thank you for your sweet comments, I appreciate your support and encouragement. Where in Texas are you? We lived in Austin (Cedar Park) for one year before we moved back to CA...I can't say I loved the hot weather, but I do love a good thunderstorm, and there were many!
I look forward to visiting you here often!
Fondly, Rhonda

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Hi Cathy! How cute that you spied a bunny! I understand about being excited about wildlife! We have birds...occasionally a rabbit or even a fox...but we now have a resident chipmunk!! Sooo cute!! I love caladiums! They are so colorful! My yard is too sunny, though. :-( My old house was shady, so I have had to learn about all new plants! Have a great weekend...hugs..Debbie

sunnymama said...

I love the picture your son took of the little bunny sitting outside your door. We live in a city too and I once saw a squirrel on our doorstep but never a rabbit :)
