Somehow I ended up only photographing pink and orange this week!? Even though I don’t like pink very much but we have quite a few pink flowers and plants in the garden. I think I like it in nature, just not in my home (flowers being the exception of course).
I cannot get enough of echinacea at the moment. Love them! And I’m not the only one.
This blackbird has been a daily visitor to our garden since early Spring. The bald patches on his face make him easy to recognise. Not long ago he was making several trips an hour and leaving with a beak full of worms each time and coming home to a patio littered with soil was a sure sign he’d visited. Three weeks have passed since we last saw him and I wonder where he’s gone :(
Solitary cosmos. The slugs gobbled up the rest along with the marigolds, sunflowers and cornflowers.
The aquilegia had self seeded so I dug up the tiny seedlings and put them in a tray of fine compost. Hopefully we will have six or seven strong plants ready for next year. Free plants!
So happy hdygg is back, it’s created a brilliant little community of nature lovers.
