    What a lot of wind…. My little windmill blew apart and scattered itself around the front garden…As I was worried it might blow across the road I was checking every so often… Not often enough!!! A Hedgehog had got into the new little pond and drowned !!! I have never seen any hedgehogs around and its only a postage stamp of a garden… Pond…[Read more]

    • Hi Ginny … how sad, I am so sorry for you [and the hog] :disappointed: It’s a warning to us all I guess tho’. I shall certainly check Tiny Pond regularly now, just in case :-)
      Have a peaceful weekend … don’t worry; be happy; stay safe :rose:

    • Morning Ginny :-) That’s a sad story. A pond is supposed to improve the garden for the wildlife.

    I have been busy planting up most of the plants I have bought and not found room for over the years…. I counted at least 10 Quince on my small tree which I originally bought from ‘home’. I just hope the dog doesn’t try and eat them before they are ready this year… I took a photo of some so I can say later ‘they were there’ I have lots of bees…[Read more]

    Well I didn’t get to do anything in my spare room today… did the animals as usual then did a bit of shopping as my oldest daughter needed some bits and is on her own with 3 boys… Ended up with some more plants…. So will have to find more room when the weather improves…. My daughter has been busy during her time at home making a ‘patio’…[Read more]

      Morning Ginny. It sounds as though you have a creative daughter there. :-) The bird cherry is lovely and all that blossom means lots of fruit for those birdies! Stay safe at work.

    • Morning Ginny, you have all been very busy. Isn’t it great to have time to get some things done. :good: Stay safe at work. :-)

    • Morning Ginny :-) We have to find a new ‘normal’, don’t we? Glad to hear you’re all well and stay safe at work :-)

    Well I have made a start on the front garden…. Rain today so no need to water …..I have had a couple of mornings when I found a moth in the dogs water bowl… thought they had drowned but when I scooped them up they moved so were put on the wall to dry off..They stayed there all day but had gone the following morning… I had a Brimstone moth a…[Read more]

    • Morning Ginny, sounds like your garden is doing really well. :good: and thank goodness for our gardens. Think we are all the same with indoor jobs getting put off, the weather has just been too good, so we’ve all been outside. ;-) Have a good day today. :-)

        Morning Ginny. Spring is such an exciting time in the garden and yours sounds lovely. Do the spare room while it rains then you can go out to play again :-)

    • Well done, Ginny! Sounds like things are coming along really well. Have a good day :-)

    • Hi Ginny :-) Bravo on saving the moths :good:
      I noticed too, the scent in the Spring air… here it is likely the Bluebells.
      Good luck with the spare room … you will need it to find the time… freedom fills it very quickly :lol: :rose:

    I hope you are all well… I saw an Orange Tip Butterfly today when we were doing the animals… The Bluebells are coming out… Wild Strawberries are out ,even found 1 small ripe strawberry…. Not done much in the garden but have an incentive to do the front as the street are planning a VE day Garden Party… everyone sitting in their own garden…[Read more]

    • Morning Ginny. Our village are having the same VE celebrations too. Tea, cake and bunting in the front gardens and 40’s dress if possible :lol: We are all missing our hols and garden centre visiting. Take care and stay safe :-)

    • Morning Ginny & Cilla, what a great idea on the VE day celebrations, you’ll both have to take photos!

    • Morning Ginny :-) Good to have that party to look forward to :good: Excellent on the orange tip and my bluebells are coming out too. Stay safe :-)

    We had quite a surprise today as a Red Kite was in our greenhouse today…I think it must have come down to catch a sparrow or two… We moved out of the way and of it went soaring back in the sky…. The fortnight before we were looking after our daughter’s animals while she was in New Zealand… seemed to take up all of our time , 5 dogs ,4…[Read more]

  • Some lovely pics so far… Glad I am not choosing who should win…

  • Not a recent pic of long tailed tit … I no longer use those netted balls or that container … I saw a Starling get caught in there.. Managed to rescue it but got lid on the top now…

  • long tailed tits… a rare occasion when they visit me…my daughter gets them often but she has more trees near hers…

  • My shrub Honeysuckle… Gives me a reason to walk up to the top of the garden just to sniff the fragrance…even in the rain…

    The tree Creeper was in Gelli Aur country park{Golden Grove} .. We were on a guided walk when we spotted it… The box is still there but no birds in it… Looking even more battered than it was then…
