A most endearing capture of this charming female wonderfully detailed and so very posed Julie. An old Gardener once told me to put orange or lemon marmalade on to your buds to stop them being picked off. Evidentially it is the citrus which the acid in the fruit which the birds do not like.

Fabulous timing, Julia, looks like you'll have to give the buds some breakfast marmalade and hope that the sparrows don't get a liking for it, too Smile Carol

Lovely image Julia - hope your newly planted tree survived the onslaught of the "de-budding" by the sparrow.
