Big Garden Bird Watch

Posted: 11/01/2013 at 17:17

Making up the number of birds seen in your garden is rather silly, like you say it is not a competition, it is important for the RSPB to know how many birds are visiting. As usual, lovely comments from you all, thank you for reading my thread.

Big Garden Bird Watch

I have just registered for the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch. I do this every year and I love it.Through doing it every year I have been able to see birds that I didn't realise came into my garden like the Dunnock and the Green Finch. Sitting watching the birds for one hour is so relaxing and very very enjoyable.

christmas tree

Posted: 08/01/2013 at 17:41

Here is a picture of my husbands Christmas tree that was planted in 1984. It was bought in a pot and used indoors for Christmas then planted outside. This is where he used to live (before he met and married me),  we went to Ironbridge for a holiday and took a trip to see his old house. He couldn't believe it when he saw how big the tree had grown and so surprised to see that it is still there.

What we are doing this week

Posted: 08/01/2013 at 17:18

My potting shed is now tidy and ready for major seed sowing. I've tidied up my Fucshias that are overwintering in the greenhouse, all of them are doing well. I so love to be back out into the garden, and it was quite a nice day out there today even though the sun didn't shine.

Talkback: Christmas traditions

It has always been a tradition in our house to have fresh veg from the garden on Christmas day. My dad always did it and now I do the same. Christmas never feels the same any more with out my mum and dad here but I will always have fresh veg from the garden on Christmas day.
Happy Christmas to all at Gardeners World and a Happy New Year.

Bees in garden

Posted: 15/12/2012 at 17:41

That is a lovely photo. I had the same thing with my Fox Gloves, the bees were mad for them too. It is just amazing to watch them buzz in and out of the flowers and to watch how they move the petals about to get in.

What a brilliant idea for Christmas presents Kate. I've got two blue tit boxes up in my garden one didn't have any birds in it this year as it wasn't up very long but the other one has had several blue tit families in there over the years. I love to watch them flying in and out feeding their young. Poor things they work so hard.

Talkback: Winkworth Arboretum

We went to the Edinburgh Botanic Garden in September. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too good it was raining quite hard and we didn't see all of the garden. What we did see was just beautiful though. I do want to go back and hopefully the weather will better. It is lovely to get out in to the garden this time of year, even if it is only for a while or until you can't feel your fingers and toes anymore.

I have had a queue of birds at my feeders too, and I've got Mr & Mrs Blackbird fighting with the Starlings for the meal worms. I to love this mouth, well every month and season really. You have to accept every season for what it is.

What's the weather like in your area?

Palaisglide, we went to Morecambe for a friends retirement party so we didn't go for the seaside, went into Blackpool too as my step daughter lives there. Anythime of the year, it is still a beautiful part of the country. The sun has been out today in Bournemouth quite cold but at least it is dry.
