Have I mentioned how much I hate dark evenings. I would much rather have dark mornings then I could stay in bed till it was light.
Had an unexpected visit from firstborn and family plus secondborn and partner this afternoon. Its lovely when all the family get together, but now its nice and peaceful again.
Haven't ventured into the garden today. Will have to plan where I'm going to put tulips, alliums and nerines. Also got about 5 geraniums on order and agastache blue boa (that's Verdun's fault). Can everyone now stop showing pictures and recommending plants please otherwise I will have to start planting things in the neighbour's garden. I've even started toying with the idea of taking the conifers down at the bottom of the garden and planting something more attractive. The problem is that I will be overlooked by two houses until the replacements grow and somedays I don't think I'll be around that long.
I love seeing plants grow from tiny little things into large full grown specimens. But on this occasion I wish I was rich enough to get one of those instant hedges put in.
Lovely pumpkins Chicky.
Fairy I reckon those starlings will just look on that new feeder as a starter and then move across to the main course.
I'm still not feeding the birds since Roland Rat appeared in the garden. Not seen him since but will wait a couple more weeks before feeding again. Still haven't told hubby I just couldn't stand seeing that 'I told you so' look.
