Mum's garden birds.........................................................................................

I had a visit to my Mum's today to do a bit of a tidy up and weeding in her garden.
Yes I had my camera with me... I captured these images while taking a drinks break.

 This fence was replaced earlier this year after high winds brought down the old one.
It's not taken long for the plants (and weeds) to recover.

The garden next door has plenty of bird feeders... and Mum gets to see plenty in her garden.

This little youngster was still getting fed by it's parents.

 There were plenty of House Sparrows enjoying the feeders.


A potted rhododendron adds a bit of colour to the patio.
I have some bedding plants left over at home... I now know were they are going.


Blue Tit.

It's Fathers Day... 
...we lost Dad over 40 years ago... so that makes this a day for appreciating my Mum.
She has been doing both jobs for such a long time.

Maravilhosa série de fotos.
Adorei a segunda foto... eles são pardais tão comuns mas são tão bonitinhos.
Boa semana!
Beijinhos.

Those are so sweet! My grandfather loved sparrows. Whenever I see them I think of him. Thank you for a nice father's or rather grandfather's day memory. It's good of you to make father's day a celebration for your mother as well.
