We had another fine day in the garden today. Plenty of planting and tending. The Honeysuckle is out and smells devine. My Iris’s are nearly there and the bee’s they are a buzzing. The Starlings on the other hand are completely bonkers- if they are not trying to break their necks flying into the windows they are flying down the blocked chimneys- which then have to be unblocked to reveal¬†very sooty birds. Oh the fun we have. Brightest Blessings.

It’s always a wonderful sight- and a joy to hear them twittering on the telephone wire that leads from our bedroom to the telegraph pole out the front of house. Brightest Blessings.

We have 3 differant kinds of bird baths in the garden- all in differant areas- for the differant birds. The tall one is under the tree with the nut feeders and fat balls. The smaller birds tend to use this one like the sparrows and tits. The shallow but very wide terracotta dish amid the herb patch is where the wrens & robins tend to go. Under the old twisted apple tree is an upsidedown bin lid- this is where the Blackbirds go- and they queue up in the tree above- it is quite amusing watching all the differant birds and their preferences. Brightest Blessings.
