How nice to have a peep into your garden again Gee, it all looks really lush and you do have some lovely shrubs, lots of colour going on in there, I see you still have many feathered visitors, always a delight watching the birds, not sure I'd be best pleased if I saw a squirrel digging in my pots but I'd be glued to the window if we did still have some around, sadly not seen any for a long time here. Millie is posing nicely for you, if ours sit and watch like that it usually means they are cooking up some mischief for when I turn my back ...

Nice to see you back Gee. The garden is looking good and it seems like me you like to encourage your wildlife too.

Wow lovely, my nandinas suffered a little but have bounced back :-))

Your garden is looking wonderful. I am very fond of using foliage to provide the colour in my garden too. Your wildlife is not showing any signs of the drop in numbers being bandied around so your style must be suiting the birds well. I'm happy to see you posting again.

Squirrels and bulbs... it's an international problem! lol...Great to see your garden again...it's looking lush.
How did Spike get his name?...he's gorgeous. My new doggie is learning the garden and Rufus (cat) still lurks above the barn door.. lots of robins this year..nice to see all your wildlife. Besides flowers, one of the prettiest parts of a garden.

All lovely Gee, and it nice to hear from you again. Favoujrite picute this time is the baby bluetit! You did well to snap the squirrel in the plant pot - that nails the thief pretty certainly!

Your garden looks great and it's lovely to see images of your visiting birds. We don't seem to have that many around these days.

We do have squirrels around and it was fun to see Mum, Dad and Youngster doing a tight rope walk on the telegraph wire.

Thank you for your kind comments. I think I've caused confusion. Spike is the pushy starling, he had a head of spiky feathers when he first appeared. Millie is my lovely dog, about 12 years old now 😊

Thank you for Millie's name cute.

You have some great plants there, Gee! The birds & the squirrel must keep you pretty occupied! 😄

Nice to hear from you again Gill, your garden is lovely and I'm glad one of your Coprosmas survived :)

Great to see you again Gee! I was very taken with your ‘Guinness fountain’ and I must say...Physocarpus are so much more rewarding than Coprosma. I’ve tried and failed twice. Like you, I do have a remnant of one of mine, the light coloured one, but it was badly hit in this winter even in the shelter of my south facing house wall. Isn’t it great to see the baby birds? We have a family of Chaffinches, one of Great-Tits (little lemony fluff balls, so cute), one of blue-tits, one of Gold-Finches and one of Green-finches too! Then there are the Blackbirds and the Dunnocks. Its a veritable kindergarten just now out there and a joy to watch. Makes all the effort so worthwhile!

Good to see your garden and menagerie once more Gee ... thank goodness the front garden didn't flood again.

I was referring to your starling, Spike? Millie is a sweetie.. she looks very business like... guarding the garden...my little guard-dog guy is a whopping 3.5 kilos! He doesn't bark much either...hmmm. perhaps I should reconsider his position?
Have seen stories about tame starlings and the wonderful pets they may make... Is Spike a foundling or has he just decided to help out around the house?

Lori, I called him Spike because when he first turned up his feathers were all sticking up! He is much tidier and sleeker now and is difficult to tell from all the others until he lands on the back door step :)

My Coprosma is going great guns now with all the sunshine, Karen, I am very pleased with it. Just hard work keeping up with all the watering. Water butts are nearly empty and I don't have an outside tap :(

Thanks for all the comments.

Lovely photos & garden. I always wonder how people get such clear & close up photos of wild life. I suppose you have a special lens. As you can guess I don't know much about photography.
