Being a chilly start to October hasn’t put off the Collard Doves having another brood. The Fir tree in the garden gave them a little more protection than previous years. I have encounter a few upsetting eggs that were taken by the Maggie pie sorry to give him a bad name.
Oh what Joy! I saw them for the first time yesterday afternoon, after hearing some strange noises high up in the tree earlier on.
Three or four not quite sure looking very well , smaller than mum and Dad. I can’t tell you how happy I was to see them at last.
Just look at these lovely Cooking Apples this year , so plenty of Apple Pies and Crumble. Yummy. Very happy with these .
The Fir tree ( there are or were three) that was cut down because of power lines.,has given the Fuchsia opportunity to spread its wings . Around the base of the tree it was a poor little morsel, but look at it now…Nature Wonderful.
We had visitor’s from London beginning of September , the weather was fantastic. They enjoyed a long weekend helping with the garden , and they both thoroughly enjoyed it. I helped by making the drinks and sandwiches at the time .
Also cooked a lovely meal for them in the evening . Lucy ( my Lurcher ) had such fun she so enjoys people around. She just plodded around with them until someone was kind enough to throw her ball. Dashing off to return it for an action replay please.
Good time had by all, that 2 acre garden has many benefits as well as plenty of work to do. It’s so good when family give a helping hand and the weather is warm and sunny. Couldn’t have asked for a more Perfect Weekend. !
Bye for now ..
