All the ducks are swimming in the......


Just a quick view of some chicks n things

Can’t walk by and not include a quick pics of my neighbours splendid poppies in the light

and more passions are now in full swing

Just potting up in the evening and nice tranquil scene over on the pond

Everything is in order as the ducks quietly enjoy it

and there’s some chicks awww

and nice to see all the flag irises coming out, BUT just then alot of quacking, whats going on??

ah whats this I see?

ah yes I see you

quick everyone, into the centre

who me? yes you

I can still see you

and off he goes

hes round the back, but we’re ok here

and as your were

nice bit of sun, the Tibetan prayer flags to ward off the nettles seems to have failed though

and have some more poppies

difficult to know ‘when’ the garden (even if it is my neighbours) is at its best, so best take another pic

Come on Kaia look into to my camera, no you’ve ignored me and have no biscuit, talk to the paw cus the dog ain’t listenin

Look I said I’m not looking at the camera…..doh

Nice blog, Steve. I am very sorry to say I like your neighbour s garden very much. Specially the photo with poppies and rays of sun. Definetely there will be some mood swings in the winter, lol.

enjoyed the walk, thanks for posting.

"passion" always makes me smile: there was a recipe that called for passion fruit, but the instructions went on, "birish housewives can substitute strawberries for passion"

Idyllic! I am so jealous. That was a lovely blog, S the T. How wonderful to be potting up with that view before you, or behind, or wherever. The pictures of Kaia are adorable.

Thanks folks : )
mood swings in the winter Kat!!?
well hoping to stick loads of veg and tom soup in my freezer, lets see if summer delivers
No not my pond (wish it was\0 just over the fence in the field near me DB
thanks JP, FH2, TB
Problem is Fran, am hoping to get some ripe passion fruits but only one plant in flower and need another to polliate!! The winter took its toll on my big plants so news ones are on the go, fingers crossed.
