Isn't that the best shade of blue? I love the cottage style garden.

THANKS PAUL, THE POPPIES AND CORNFLOWERS SEEDED THEMSELVES FROM LAST YEAR. WHEN THE FLOWERS WERE DYING OFF I SNIPPED THEM OFF AND LET THEM REST ON THE SOIL. THE POPPY SEEDS I CUT OFF LAST YEARS HEADS, DRIED THEM OFF, LET THE SEEDS FALL IN A TRAY AND SPRIKLED THEM OVER THE FLOWERBED.

THANKS PAUL...JUST LUCK PROBABLY. IT CERTAINLY IS COLOURFUL PAUL.
I HAVE BEEN GETTING FEED FOR THE BIRDS VIA SHOPPING ON LINE. I LOVE TO SEE THE BIRDS EVERY DAY VISITING THE GARDEN. LOTS FEEDING THEIR BABIES AT THE MOMENT.

Me too Linda. In the summer I make sure they have a cool fresh water bath waiting for them under the maple tree. They pick all the bugs off my tomatoes & peppers. It's nice to look at them over the morning coffee.

I HAVE TO FILL THREE BIRDBATHS EVERY DAY PAUL. YOU ARE RIGHT WHEN YOU SAY ABOUT THE BUGS. I SAW A BLACKBIRD WITH A BEAKFUL OF SLUGS YESTERDAY. THEY GO IN AND OUT OF THE FLOWERBEDS AND EVEN SEEM TO GET BUGS FROM THE LAWN AREA.
THANKS THRUPENNYBIT.
