The weather is so lovely again this week so I decided to have my dinner outside in the garden this evening (bacon, fried bread, microwave chips, ketchup and cress if you were wondering), when a moth walked across the path not far from where I was sitting, so obviously I went inside to get my camera…Continue reading
It’s actually National Gardening Week this week (run by the RHS) so what better time to update you with all the plants I’ve been planting in the garden over the past week or so. We actually got a lovely delivery of spring plants from Otter Garden Centre last week (it really made my week finding them online to buy!) it was like a mystery box style selection of plants with bulbs and compost… so here we are, new plants and a part two blog post of spring in the garden this year.Continue reading
It’s been over a month since I last posted anything on here but today I am back with another garden related blog post… this time full of flowers that are (or have been) flowering around the garden for spring (along with a few wildlife photos as well).Continue reading
Okay so we might be very nearly in autumn now but here it is, my summer in the garden blog post, featuring plants, flowers and more general zoomed out photos of the garden than I’ve ever posted on here before… plus a collage of wildlife photos just because.Continue reading
If you haven’t already seen it, I posted a spring in the garden blog post just over a month ago, you can find that here – Spring Flowers In The Garden 2019, since then more plants have come out in flower so I thought I’d do another post – a part 2, this one with more of a wildlife theme to it too.Continue reading
It’s spring which means it’s gardening weather again, yay! Last year I did a spring in the garden blog post but didn’t post it until towards the end of spring whereas this year I’ve decided to do a post a lot nearer to the start of spring… so, on with the spring photos.Continue reading
Spring is one of my most favourite times of the year, from the bulbs that start growing to the other plants that grow and start flowering again. Some of these have been added to the garden recently and others have been here for a while. I did a similar post in the autumn which you can find here Autumn-ful Of Photos but first, on with this post!
Yesterday was supposed to be the first day of spring according to the meteorological calendar but we’ve had so much snow here in the past 24 or so hours, I mean I don’t think I’ve ever seen this much snow before.
So today is the first day of this year’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, which is running from the 27th – 29th January.
What better way to follow on from yesterday’s post than with a post all about wildlife in the garden. We have a variety of wildlife that visit our garden, some are regulars and then there’s the pheasant that’s just visited once.
Stover Country Park is one of my most favourite places to go walking, after going there for the first time in 2013, I’ve been back several times since. It’s pretty local too which is great, I really don’t know why we didn’t start going there sooner.
One of the best areas is a walkway which takes you round to where there’s a bird feeder hanging, birds pop in and out to feed there all the time. The squirrels feed on the ground (you can see them climbing the trees around there too) I’ve seen birds there I haven’t seen anywhere else.
