Welcome to my Blog

I hope you will enjoy yourself here. I will update often. I am not promising to update every day but will take pictures or write every day, update when I can and and they will have the date on which the images were made on them.

Hi There, Today I am updating from my iPad. Just a trial this time.

As always click on the image to see a larger version.

Well today has been a day of fun and frolics in the garden for the birds.
I decided I really need three cameras in this house, one for the kitchen one for the lounge and one in the study because whenever there is action in the garden, the camera is always in the other room! :-)
It rained incessantly all day yesterday so I didn't go out to replenish the feeders but my goodness... how they made up for it today

Get off... these are mine ... all mine!

The chain is to stop the feeder stand blowing over in the wind. I used less obtusive string originally but they ate that or took it for nesting material.

I'm just out of the bath! Can you see my beautiful colours?

My goodness these fat balls are good.

I love this time of year in the garden. I seem to find something new every day as well as watch the progression of old favourites.

The Aliums above and below are reliable in this garden. I'm surprised that the green one is still alive as the gardener almost pulled it out of the ground when he was removing the dead bluebells!

I planted the clematis below last year and I think it is called Belle of Woking. It has so far only produced one flower this time and is struggling a bit. I love the colour and form though.

I found the one below lurking right at the bottom of the garden and it was here when I came.

The bees seem to like these wild red poppies too

This Lewisia is another of the alpines I planted last year and it has been hiding behind the foliage of the spring flowers.

The dark red columbine was lurking in the shrubbery at the bottom of the garden

Isn't this pale blue one beautiful? It is almost transparent in the sunshine

Three different colours of foxgloves are in the front garden

I wish you could smell this beautiful old fashioned rose which is only just beginning to flower.

This little one had been very busy on the fat balls all day I bet there's a nest somewhere in next doors many trees!

And the bees have been very busy today too.
