What’s in the Garden? – C

Categories: Alphabetical Gardening.


The alphabetical garden tour this week shares wha’s in the garden starting with C – birds, plants, whimsy and more.

My favourite bird has to be the cardinals that visit all year round.  This link will take you to lots more cardinal photos.

Lots more birds that start with C visit the garden … crows, cowbirds, cedar waxwings.

And then there are those adorable little chickadees that flit in and out and really are people friendly.  They cheer up the garden in winter.

There are lots of lovely plants beginning with c … coreopsis, cosmos, clematis, calendula, celosia, coneflowers, coral bells, creeping jenny, coleus and probably more.

Chimes are lovely to hear in the garden and each one makes its own sound. Here are some that I’ve made.

I’m still adding to my personal alphabet with the letter C for this week.

C – crafter, Canadian by choice, cat lover, cheerful,

I found this door handle that resembled a letter C on our travels.

I’m sharing with ABC Wednesday.

This is the 25th round for this very popular link up. Be sure to check out what others have found for the letter of the week.



  1. I’m going to check out your CD links, thank you. I’ve been wanting to make some kind of mock stained glass something but hesitate about playing with glue — it gets all over me. I made chimes with aluminum wrenches which surprised me with their pleasant sound

  2. What a good way to do ABC Wednesday. Sometimes I scratch my head trying to think of something that goes with a particular letter. Your chimes are lovely and I bet they make soothing sounds. – Margy
