Well it has sure rained at lot , well that’s an understate ment poured over the last few week’s . A few weeks ago I potted some begonias yellow and  Red , such an up-lifting colour don’t you think. To add a bit of colour to my some what bleak looking Patio and surrounding arrears. Having not enough dry time I haven’t been able to get out and get tidying. So I bought a Lovely Yellow Begonia from the garden centre already established, and placed it by the back door.

I noticed there is a Dove (ring necked) nesting in the front garden. It’s quite a small tree with not an awful lot of coverage. But I suppose she knows what she is doing. I put some wild bird seed out every Morning, and she comes down to feed for a short while. I can’t see her mate so I’m not sure if she is now on her own.

The Pond at the top of my garden is very quiet this year , all the mallards seem to have flown off to look for a new mate. Leaving the Moorhens with their chicks to feed. So in fact they have the whole place to themselves., and very nice to.

The weekend is fast approaching for me anyhow and for most folk I’m sure. A new month is almost upon us and hasn’t April just sped by. What’s the weekend hold for you any plans. I have a little housework to do and maybe a little cooking a few cakes and cookies. I must admit I haven’t really felt like housework and all it entails, I think you have to be in the right frame of mind. Unless of course it’s an necessity . Instead I have been watching a good afternoon Movie with a cup of tea and piece of cake. With guess who sitting by my side , Wile-e but I think it was the cake he had his eye on. With those large brown eye’s how could I resist , not giving into him. LOL.

Enjoy your Weekend hope you find time to relax.  I have posted the Begonia as you can see separately to this blog.

  2. Sitting with a cuppa~ Wile-e and a piece of cake and an afternoon film sounds just the job Sheila.. Me Im working Saturday, and hoping to get into the allotment Sunday. we are way behind with this rain.. but looks as if we shall have to plant our pototoes come rain or shine.. lol.
    I need to replant the Sweetcorn too.. as that I think has rotted in the pots in the greenhouse as its been too cold these past few weeks… I may have to bring indoors to start them off in the spare bedroom… … Hope you have a lovely week.. Im keeping my fingers crossed too for a blackbird who has nested rather low down in a shrub.. There are far too many neighbours cats around so I hope that she has made a wise choice.. she had to move last year as they discovered her hiding place.. Fingers crossed.. ~Hugs and enjoy your weekend xxx ~Sue xxx

      Hi DW hope you manged to get in your greenhouse, the weather was pretty appauling . Oh and fingers crossed for the blackbird , they tend to nest pretty low down. Had one just by the back door in the bush a few years ago. Not a wise choice say no more,

    Hi Sheila, sorry I appear to have missed this one, I am trawling through over 300 posts, and it’s a marathon task, you just daren’t take your eye off the ball, most of them are jokes from friends , lots of dog stuff, and the occasional bit of garbage. However, it sounds like you had a nice afternoon, I hope you gave Wile-e a suitably large pieced of cake, as all that devotion must go well rewarded. Begonias are rather showy ad do well, so long as it’s not raining, so fingers crossed with it. I hope your little dove has managed to raise a few babies, or is it too soon to tell. Hugs and hoping for an invite to the next cuppa and cake, from we 3 XX
