birds in my garden today


By sandra


hey there
sorry to be so quiet in recent times but i have been busy preparing the nursery and camp site for the new season. but today i took time out as it was my 50th birthday and i spent the day sharing my birthday cake with my many feathered friends.

it seems the starlings liked the chocolate cake the best but the sparrows were loving the last of the christmas cake…lol

as you can see i was totally spoilt…

it was lovely to take some time out…

i’m getting excited about the new season and spent the day yesterday building a new frame in my tunnel ready for the tomato seeds…

the other frames in there are all full of my babies and im delighted they are doing so well. the weather has been mild here so far but we are prepared for the colder weather with covers waiting to go on when necessary…

hope every ones well and i cant wait to see all your gardens spring in to action soon….

Sandra :-)
