Cookies for my Sister

 The past week has been Spring like here , so just in time for my sister’s visit. A good few days we enjoyed and laugh’s and walks. Wile-e was soo pleased to greet her at the door , as she tried to get inside I had to calm him down.

Now back to the garden there is certainly a lot to do , tidying up isn’t one of my favourite job’s I must admit. But I have managed to clear the small area in the front of the pathway. June brings (I hope ) Pink and Yellow roses in this area. The smell as you walk up the pathway is wonderful, so this area is important to keep clear. Also the long tall yellow flower which I have never found out what they are called I’m ashamed to say. I can just about see their tiny heads poking up from the cleared soil now.

First thing this Morning I could hear quite clearly the Song Thrush  singing high in the distant tree. I am so pleased to hear him this Spring, as last year he never showed up. He has in fact been here all Morning and is still belting out his beautiful tones.

On the Pond at the top of my garden I noticed a Moorhen in the reeds on her nest. So they should be due mid to end of April.

It rained last night so the ground is still wet , so until it dries out a bit more, why don’t you join me for tea and a Cookie.  The weather looks to be pretty good over the weekend , hope it is where-ever you are. Catch you later and Take care. 🙂

    Currant cookies , yummy, keep the teapot hot please, I’ll help out with the garden in return. I’m sure your sister will appreciate them too. Send a picture of the yellow flower, I hate unsolved mysteries.
    I saw the thrush in the garden once very briefly this year, but not any more, though there are quite a few singing on the patch to the beach. Love to hear them too. look forward to the pics of the moorhens
    Hugs to you and Wile-e X
