In my garden.....

  • Whatever next????? Deer and now a baby Robin, I'm emigrating to Scotland pronto:-) Fabulous pics Linda.

    Lot to learn

  • Thanks to everyone for the photos and comments.
    Linda, Congratulations on seeing the deer and good luck with your newly-bought plants! Hope it does not return for regular feasts. Deer are very agile and probably can leap over 6-foot fences. Your photos reminded me of our birding friends in Alaska--they have Moose leaping their fences, into and out of their back garden, and pruning their shrubs in the dead of winter.

    Kind regards,

    Thanks Ann, Thank goodness the trees are right round the back of the fence so not really any way of it running and leaping other than into a leylandii...that would be a great sight to see it come flying through them lol

  • So after finally getting rid of the mad mob (Starling Army) yesterday...I had to remove all feeders except seeds and peanut ones just to gain back control of MY own garden and to give my little feathered friends some peace to have a bath and some food.

    So if you are not partial to coal tits I would stop reading now

    It was lovely spending a couple of hours just watching them collect food as you will see in my pic overload

    Enough I hear you say lol

    Well I did manage to get a few other visitors...nothing new this time though lol

    And then there was a whats the plan guys

    when your trying to get away with the last bit of suet!!!

    oh hello there

    even the fox knows not to touch my plants!

    Well that was another humdrum day in my garden...oh except that wee cutie baby Robin which was the highlight.

     Hope you all enjoyed as today its blowing a gale and rain!

    So take care and I will hopefully be back soon with more babies!
