At the end of the working day there’s not much better than having a cup of tea at the bottom of the garden. We always enjoy having birds in the garden, even the pigeons although my wife might disagree, she’s not that fond of them.
I don’t what has happened to the starlings, I haven’t seen them for a couple of days. There are always the sparrows of course, I love them. Seeing them having a go at the feeders, feeling frustrated that I can’t feed all of them.
We also have a group three magpies. Trouble is they think the garden is theirs and they make no bones about letting us know. Magpies really do sound angry. I think its brilliant. We don’t agravate them. Really love to see them, they are such beautiful birds.
The garden itself is so colourful at the moment. Lots of flowers. We had to cut back the wild patch, it was coming to an end. Hopefully some more will grow before winter comes. The more insects we have visiting us the better. Hopefully, the two rather large Buddleia will attract lots of butterflies. I’ve just seen that the Big Butterfly count starts this Friday, the 15th and reruns through to 7th of August. I really enjoyed doing that, and saw some beautiful butterflies.
All in, a very satisfying day.
