To the heron it's Gnomans Land!
Or the frogs will croak it!
The last thing I wanted to see in the backyard this morning:
Yes, it's really awful when the nose comes off your snowman!!
I love your snowman's lights by the way - I didn't know such things were sold!
My wife's sister sent the lights for Christmas, but this is the first good wet snowfall we've had since.
The fence is back up and secure and we have started replanting. Here are a few shots from this morning. Its amazing how an 8mm lens makes our 40ft square plot look like an "Estate"
What a lovely garden. I like those raised beds - keep meaning to do that myself.
We finally cut the grass yesterday and I did some weeding. It looks very nice, but not too tidy. Don't want to chase the wildlife away. I'm expecting the starling fledglings (and blackbirds hopefully) to swarm down very soon as I'm having to fill the feeders twice daily now. Have stocked up with feed and am looking forward to lots of screeching and splashing when I come down to breakfast.
Thanks Chris. Those raised beds are a result of coping with knackered knees and backs rather than anything else. They are suprisingly productive though.
Give it another few weeks and the colour will start to show, then it really begins to look tasty
Oh no..... it's started. It's a lovely sunny day here for the first time in months but the flamin' cat from over the back has been in my shrubs and injured a fledgling sparrow. It's now on my garden path and I daren't move it, but hate the thought of leaving it there too. So I'm avoiding the garden. The downside of spring unfortunately.
My first starling chicks have been spotted sitting in the bird bath. I don't have the right equipment to take a decent photo of birds but they looked really cute, if a little bemused. The last of my peaceful breakfasts I think.
My front garden this morning.
Found this little'un hiding in the garden bag
because this had just happened
Bad quality pics as I had to dash to get the camera before the crow flew off, and the starling juvenile was right up against the wall and the haze is the window frame. What with this going on and me injuring a bird when it flew under my car this morning, it's been a bit of a carnage type day.
One for Alison.
The onslaught from next door's clematis.
This lot eventually reached down to the ground over an area about eight feet wide. It came over and through the fence.
Now that's the kind of growth I'd like my clematis to put on I wonder if I'll be able to produce a similar photo next year?
Just been watching all the starling juveniles bathing, playing and getting fed by some excellent parents. Great fun. And saw my first juvenile blackbird this morning too - all fat and speckly. The chaffinch youngsters are doing well too and there's a whole bunch of sparrows flapping around too. How dull my garden would be without all this activity.
Mind you, that flamin' carrion crow's got his eye on the proceedings too which is a pain, so are the magpies. Oh well, there's always bit of trouble in paradise I suppose.
