Yes Joyce. His garden though very small is walled and in a very warm part of the inner city, one degree warmer than mine in the suburbs. His climber especially the roses do wonderfully well. A young robin, cheeky Sam, the sparrow who darts in and flies off with his food no matter how big the birds already there and a wren from the front garden which is their stronghold as they love the black grapes i let them have from the vine that climbs the bungalow wall, have all visited for the crumbs this morning and one squirrel who is now stripping the nuts on the contorted hazel. The blackbirds must be out in the fields but the crow who spooks them all is up on my roof as I can hear him scolding down the chimney in my study. He may be scolding me for not replenishing the food for him!
