Female blackbird loses her mate - very sad

Yes you are right Bookertoo, the car is not nature and it saddens me to see so much road kill, the poor wildlife just does not stand a chance. 

Shrub given advise please?

Looks like a cornflower to me from your upside down photo

Not a shrub but an annual but it is very pretty and once you have it in your garden you will always have it.  I love it, it is very pretty.

Female blackbird loses her mate - very sad

I could not beleive my eyes last night whilst driving along a country lane.  A male blackbird had been killed by a car and was lying in the road.  Female was sitting on side of road looking on.  A huge crow was picking over the dead male when suddenly the female flew at him and began to attack him.  Even when he flew away she was still having a go at him in mid air.

What feisty birds these blackbirds are and so devoted to their mate.

Made me feel very sad.  I know the crow probably had a nest of babies to feed as well - that is just nature.

Love the garden Andy, you have so much scope there to do what you want.  I think a wildlife pond is a great idea Marion and the holly and ivy.

Thanks Marion and Fairygirl.  There are some beautiful pics on here, such pretty gardens.

Yes I too would love to look like Rachel de Thame. I was amazed to find out that she is 49, she looks at least 10 years younger.

Here are a few from my garden.  Here in Suffolk we must be a little later with plants coming out cos I do not have any alliums out yet (all in bud) no roses or clematis although they are all bursting they just need a few days of sun (don't we all)  Anyway here are a few of my garden

Thought I'd include a pic of my gargoyle who keeps an eye over my garden. xx
