A few years back I actually saw a buzzard swoop down on its prey in my garden! I was just stepping outside the back door, I had camera in hand but it all happened in the blink of an eye. ALL that was left was a pile of sparrow feathers.

Dove, I read that you can tell robins by the crest on their heads??? Is it called a crest? If its curved its a guy bird and V shaped is girl and I only remember that because V is for V**gina am I wrong?

Hi everyone!

Lovely to read all your activity in the garden with the sun out. It's been beautiful here in Kent, sun is still glorious and I've been fed and watered and will take a leisurely stroll just to figure out some planting positions for next week maybe...

The sun has got his hat on....

My part of Kent is glorious, buds popping all over the place, roses have first leaves in the most sheltered parts and large Acer is blushing early. Warm with no wind

Congratulations BL, I'm sure your garden will amaze and delight

Weekend weather predicted at 17 also and I shall spend most of it trapped inside a little room baking donuts Oh well, needs must and I do get to enjoy today although my mood is rock bottom at the moment and not sure why.

Rubbish people have been for first load, looks like there's a half load to go yet but that will make the largest space I've had down the bottom since...oooh...ever!

Not sure what I feel like doing in the garden once they are gone, maybe punkdoc's PPP from yesterday? We'll see later at summing up time

Have a great day everyone

Haha, freedom is soo underrated, as is silence although these days the night sky is a little more overwhelming for me as it reminds me of my insignificance  

enjoy your meanderings, the orange flowers are so beautiful

Thanks guys, always a wee bit scary to let someone loose on your plants even if they DO need it!

True true Verdun, was checking out your plant combo the other day, with the purple Berberis, blue geranium and that yellow grass???? or subshrub maybe, I forget its name as its a new one for me but lovely combo
