The Spring flowers have now faded and summer bedding plants are now in situ! Summertime is around the corner, better tell the weather that.lol! The birds are feeding like there is no tomorrow though I have only seen in my garden a single fledgling Dunnock and Blackbird, so maybe more fledglings will be arriving soon! The Starlings are daily in the garden eating every last morsel of the suet pellets that I put in the feeder, the pellets are expensive so they are being rationed.lol! The birds arriving on a daily basis are the usual species Blackbirds, Dunnocks, Blue & GreatTits, Starlings, Robin, Woodpigeons, Feral Pigeons and the occasional visit from a Coal Tit and Greenfinches. The Blue Tits have deserted the House Sparrow terrace nesting box sadly, I wonder why this happens?
The Wisteria that has draped around a third of my house is looking beautiful and the fragrance is delightful on a warm day/evening. The Lilac tree is in full flower and also has a divine fragrance. Woodpigeons will no doubt descend on the Lilac tree when the flowers fade, the Woodies eat the spent blossom!
