I've bought a couple of plinths for my garden urns...... been a while searching

I bought a couple of urns as planters for my garden last year.... 
... planted as hanging baskets they weren't high enough for the plants I used.

The plinths give them a bit more height... and look really good.

Veg seeds in....................................................... bedding and toms this weekend

Another garden makeover.

I have moved the birdbath onto what used to be my small lawn... 
... and bought some raised veritable beds... where I used to grow flowers.
Onions lettuce cauliflower carrots radishes and spuds on the way... well lets see.

My white squirrel pic has made the National Press again....................................

Published in the National Press again...it's my white squirrel pic.

All-white creatures – many of which are albinos – are often considered lucky in some cultures. Sadly for the animals themselves, the opposite is true.

Nice timing........... a Goldcrest in the garden during my Big Garden Birdwatch

This weekend it's been the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch... 
...they claim it's the worlds largest wildlife survey.
You spend one hour noting the number of birds and different species that visit your garden.
During my hour earlier to day I had 10 species visit my feeders.. the last one was a bit special.

Goldcrest (Regulus regulus)

 The smallest British bird weighing around 6.5gm.

 All the images were taken through my kitchen window... and it was raining.

 It's only the second one I've seen in the garden in over 10 years

 A great little bird to end my bird count with.
