I’m off to the Lakes tomorrow, one of my favourite places….ever!
chimineas have been enjoyed.
There have been some lovely balmy evenings of late, so hubs and I have made the most of them by sitting out enjoying a good old blaze, we have a huge supply of broken fence panels, thanks to Doris, ideal for burning.
Wildlife awareness talks have been enjoyed.
I went along to meet this little troop of Beavers, complete with hedgehogs. What a marvelous audience they proved to be; they just loved the hedgehogs, as did the brownies.
They also collected a shed-load of animal food and treats as well as raising money. What a bunch of angels. It was lovely meeting them all.
Birds have been released.
A black pigeon, a dove…..
and a racing pigeon.
They went off beautifully and are still hanging around. The dove has paired up with the racing pige, and the black pige is hanging out with a …..wood-pigeon?!?
More plants have been dug up.
and the back pond is finally out. The new flagging will cover this area. I’m planning on having lots of raised islands and hope to relocate the pond somewhere out of reach of the beech tree leaves.
Meanwhile, the front pond is prettying up! I saw a female blackbird hunting tadpoles today. She stood on a lily pad and pounded her feet to dislodge them. She caught three.
Rock roses are blooming…
along with brambly ones….
and seedlings have been potted! I now have absolutely nowhere to put anything!
a couple of videos….still figuring it all out.
I never seem able to take pics to show how the courtyard looks, so opted for a video instead. Yes, it’s packed solid….. with all sorts of junk!!!
