Max - Do you get magpies and/or jays in your area?  They'll take eggs from blackbirds nests.

Hopefully your blackbirds have started another nest in a more secluded spot

Choisy Sundance Dove!  I love it. Like the coloured foliage spireas but not the plain green forms.  Kerria?  Agree with that.  Not for me.  I have skimmia Kew Green in full flower right now KEF.  Bees love it as I do 

I knew you'd say that!    There was one outside my office window at work - it never looked healthy to me - pale and wan   I got permission to dig it up and replace it with a Sambuccus Nigra 'Black Lace' - huge improvement   The birds were happier too

We put some live mealworms out yesterday and a pair of robins were back and forth all day taking beaks full to their nestlings.  We moved the dish closer and closer to the terrace table and it didn't deter them - today the dish is on the table - we shall see if the robins are brave enough to join us for our morning coffee

In the late afternoon a hen blackbird was bathing at the end of the pond while a robin was using the shallower birdbath nearby - as soon as the blackbird saw this she left the pond to use the birdbath and the robin had to wait until she'd finished before it could come back.  What a dog in the manger

HELLO FORKERS!

Does anyone recognise this dahlia?

I've put mine straight into some of the pots I usually use for tomatoes - I'm determined not to grow quite so many tomatoes this year so I'm filling the pots up with other things - and they're in a sheltered spot on the terrace
