Well that’s the first time I’ve seen Rabbits in the garden, it’s good to see them here. Their little white rears hopping away  in the under growth. 

Although having a Lurcher I have to be on my Guard , she dislikes Rabbits and Cats ! 

As it’s raining today I made a short trip to the Garden Center , for  a few new feeders . As my last visitor bit a hole in the nut holder, probably  a Squirrel.  The Cob Nuts are doing very well this year, so there is plenty of food for those little Critters.  Oh and myself I might add…tasty little nut and selling in the Shops right now.  

Wow take a look at my Red Hot Pokers Hot pokers up by the Pondthey are by the Pond. 

Another sight was this strange looking thing on the Wild Rose Bush. Turned out to be a Wasp Nest , a small black Wasp  one not the one’s with the stripey coats . Very clever Nature , can’t imagine how they built this. 

Meeting up with my Lady friend next Monday she’s 94 years old. Hopefully for a chat and small lunch. 

Off now to catch up on your Posts have a great week.

    Love your red hot pokers, Sheila! What a glorious photo. Please may we see a photo of your lurcher? Those rabbits had better watch out.

    Oh dear Sheila, lovely though these little bunnies may be, you’ll be making bunny stew when you catch them eating your plants. I’m sure Lucy will like it. Red hot pokers look so exotic don’t they, yours look healthy. Have a lovley coffee with your friend, 94 ! wonderful. I think I’m doing OK for 77, but I’m just a teenager in her way of reckoning, LOL take care and hugs to Lucy.

      Hello Arlene thank you for your visit , they have done very well this year.
      You are right they have chewed a few of my flower leaves. But the 2 acres and Lucy tend to keep them at the top of the garden.
      The Wasp tend to like them so running hand down the flower is out of the Question.
      Looking good by the way.
      Hugs xx
