Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last post and welcome to my new followers Rose and Susycottage.
It was too good an opportunity to miss today though as the sun was shining so decided to take myself out there. Made a pot of tea, opened up the summerhouse and chose a new book to read.
Peace, it was so lovely to just sit and listen to the birds.
We've a variety that come in the garden - Robins, Jays, Magpies, many varieties of Blue tits, Sparrows and Blackbirds, Starlings, several Doves and a dear little Wren. Today though I heard a Woodpecker, didn't see it but it was singing and chirping in the trees above me.
Never heard it before but checked in my little RSPB Book and sure enough it sounds as though it was. So I spent the whole afternoon just waiting and watching.
I moved over to this spot under the Pergola so that I could get a better view but still nothing appeared. Did I get to read my book? No.
I'm just watching Springwatch on the TV which actually inspired me to write this post about my garden friends. We have another friend who I mentioned recently who arrives most afternoons at about 5 o'clock. Well, on Sunday John had been planting some herbs in my herb garden, and while we were having a cup of tea, left his garden gloves on the lawn. In saunters Foxy Loxy, grabs one of the gloves in his mouth and scarpered with it! He obviously thought it was food because it smelled of herbs. John ran after it, to no avail and now has one glove short of a pair!! That'll teach him.
Well that's all my news for today. On Friday we are off to Sicily for a week so tomorrow have plenty of ironing and packing to do. Hopefully I'll be able to get wifi whilst there, if not then I'll catch up with you all on my return.
Bye for now.
