Walking down to my Greenhouse I noticed a red golfball doing gym movements on my blooming bird bath. Yes it suddenly developed a little head and two rather agile bowlegs. Blimey (I thought) Tubs my Robin friend has put in another appearance. This amazing fellow dines and showers at will frequently. On most visits he escapes my camera shots simply because I keep forgetting it. Eky thump(I Thought) I will capture" Tubs" some day but it will not be today me thinks. This decision was made on the basis that I experienced my toe had just punctured my sock in my wellingtons and my good lady (in the lounge) could,nt stop laughing at my rendition of sitting bulls waltz. I rest my case and Tubs did not return, I wonder if he ever will(LoL). Take care all,hope you enjoy Tony
