Waht a difference a bit of sunshine makes. I suppose one 'advantage' of a long winter and late spring is that lots of flowers come at once!

Enjoying all the lovely pictures

Muddy mare, have you ever seen that clip on one of David Attenborough's very old programmes where the tiny ducks leap out of a very high nest and sort of bounce when they land? Very alarming but I suppose they are so light that they don't come to any harm.

And, joy of joys, mummy blackbird is definitely sitting right down on the nest with just her eyes and beak showing

Verdun, do really imagine there's any cake left? Put it near some gardeners and they turn into gannets!

Crumbs anyone?

Today I feel so happy....

Are we done with H?  If so, I would like to kick off I with iris. I love the early flowers of the reticulata types, the Japanese types (I think) that I have in my pond, and bearded as long as they are not too frilly. But my undoubted favourite is Iris sibirica. It's def. in my top 10 of all time

Tina, don't say that   Not knowing about something and then taking the trouble to ask and find out is the way we all start.
My Mr B is fearless too when I'm digging and he has a mission to collect food. Luckily I'm a doggy household so cats tend to keep away - though my two young dogs had to be shut out of the garden for a day when the baby blackbirds were on the ground behind the berberis.
