      Enjoyed my walk today… Took loads of photos… As it was a RSPB site we all expected to see plenty of birds but I only managed to get a pic of a Grey Wagtail… Saw a Jay and heard the robins and great tits… Stopped at the pub for a bite to eat after…. Missed last weeks walk due to a young Sparrow getting stuck in our Oil Boiler Chimney……[Read more]

        Nightnight Ginny ”’ hope you are fast asleep now and your Beagle isn’t messing about any more :-) I guess he enjoyed having you around more as on holiday … good luck back at work. stay safe :rose:
        • Morning Ginny, looking forward to seeing some of your photos! I think all our animals play us up from time to time, they all know which buttons to press. :lol: Glad you enjoyed your walk, and stay safe at work. :good:
            • Morning Ginny. We didn’t see many birds at our local water meadows yesterday, either. Animals do like to see us spending money, especially at the vets, we are just too soft I’ve decided!
            • Morning Ginny :-) Have a good day :-)
              • If you put them up as a new post you will be able to put multiple ones up Ginny. You can only put one up in a reply. :-)

My oldest daughter and Grandson were away the 1st week so i was at her place looking after the other 2 boys ,cats ,kittens and dog.. also popping home to check Hubby was ok… I have a newt living in my little pond and have moved some…[Read more]

                  :lol: Oh that rings bells Ginny. your Annual Leave sounds very productive :-) Enjoy the photography tomorrow … Nightnight :rose:
                  • Morning Ginny :-) Sounds like you’re having great fun! Have a good day :-)
                    • Morning Ginny. Those Botanic Gardens are lovely, we went a few years ago. You have been busy looking after humans and furry things!!! I like walking on my own so I can stop and take photos ;-) Enjoy the sunshine. :notacloudinsight:
                      • Morning Ginny, you’ve had a busy time, but sounds like you have had fun as well, which is always a plus. Time to take photos is always good. :good: Enjoy your day today. :-)

                        The 2 mother cats are sisters and seem to be sharing looking after the kittens… She is planning on keeping one.. Her Son who has moved in with his girl wants one… The girl that she had them from wants one… I hope the cats get the op before they get caught again otherwise they will be over run with cats…

                          Where has the sun gone…. I have moved my bird feeder to the other side of the garden away from the bushes the cat was hiding under… The good thing is that I can see them better…..I am hoping when the rain stops to build an archway at the top of the garden… The roses on either side of the gateway are reaching across the gate trying to swap…[Read more]

                          • Morning Ginny, it’s always nice to be able to watch the birds, and much better keeping them further out of the cat’s way! Blimey 12 cats at one time, that’s a handful,…

                              Well I managed to get some time in the garden during my week off….. At least I didn’t need to water out side… When it was too wet I went up to my back bedroom!! to sort through the boxes that have been put there over the years…. I can actually walk across the room now… At least 5 bags of rubbish… Still a bit more to do up there… My…[Read more]

                              • Morning Ginny, think we are all getting a lot of “clearing out” done in these strange times. ;-) Your garden sounds like it is doing really well, but hope the dogs do leave you some fruit. :lol: What do they go for it when it is still not ripe! Good luck at work today and stay safe. :-)
                                • Morning Ginny :-) Wow, you’re busy!!

                                  We finally have some rain… I managed to plant up my last bits … and sowed some seeds… all started growing nicely… Looked in this morning to see 3 SLUGS munching on my seedlings and shoots …. I have been given annual leave next week and what weather do I get …RAIN…. I can experience being on lockdown and not go anywhere apart for ess…[Read more]

                                  • Morning Ginny. It should warm up middle of next week so fingers crossed for you. I still have things to plant but the ground is like iron. Enjoy your leave :-)
                                    • Morning Ginny, what a pain getting leave when the weather has turned. :-( Though I did see on one forecast that it was due to improve during the week? So fingers crossed for you. Nice to get a break though, so enjoy it. :-)
                                      • Morning Ginny :-) Hope you get dry weather next week :fingers-crossed: Yep the slugs will wake up now – I must check my lettuce in a minute. Have a good week :notacloudinsight:

                                        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]
