Our Buzzards get mobbed by crows too Lyn - thought we just had a wimpy pair, but seems its a common thing. Love hearing them "mew" from way up there - such a distinctive sound.
Frosty start here this morning - thought it was meant to be getting milder.
Hope a good night's sleep was had by all .....happy tuesday folks
Great video clip Clari - very distinct and signing easy to follow. Works on an iPad for me
I'll be up that way in April Fidget, but on a Monday, which is the day Felley Priory is closed
Morning . Glad its finally cooled down for you Pat
Short week this week. Must find some twigs to decorate with Easter stuff this evening ......now why didn't I do that this weekend in the light, rather than scrabbling round tonight with a torch
Happy first day of Spring (or Autumn if you are antipodean).
I am a big fan of phlox paniculata - never need staking, and loads of colours to choose from. Flower from early July til end August.
Gorgeous well DD
Busy day of weeding, planting and pruning. Out there all day. At one point could hear a right racket of twittering in of our oak trees - a flock of redwings had come to call very excited, as have never seen them here before.
Mr C is ok at the moment - waiting for procedure at the end of this month to find out exactly what his new problems are.
I can't tell either - but you could probably get asimilar effect on a north facing wall with a climbing hydrangea
My goodness - you've gained another 6ft of garden
Morning A day in the garden beckons for me too. Need to do lots more weeding (using my new "lush" kneeler) and have some foxglove seedlings from last year to plant out. Plus a few lovelies from my garden visit on Friday ...managed to squeeze them in amongst Chicklet's shoes A red corydalis, a clover like something, a borage, and some purple and white stripey crocus (sounds garish, but looked quite stunning naturalised in their grass).
And must remember to sow my Cosmos seeds too
Lovely Fairy especially that half frozen lochan......nature showing how shading should be done
