Welcome to the Teigngrace headquarters of the RSPB ..LOL! ;-)
It must be a very good year for Woodpeckers... as they frequent the garden almost every other minute!
I don't think I have ever seem them visiting as often as this...especially very early in the morning. I've spotted mum, dad and young'n at various times...a joy to watch, especially when they adopt that famous 'Woodpecker pose', on the upright of the bird feeder.
We also get the Green Woodpecker, daily, poking about on the lawn.
You can't beat it, it's such a delight and best of all it's free to watch with no subscription whatsoever (and no chance of the tv company going bust!) !
And in between the Woodpeckers, all sorts of other birdlife fly in, to feed.
I sat about three feet away from this little darling and what a pose...!
Now, as you know, I'm a bit of a nosey devil when it comes to gardens!
Yesterday, I was in my sister's garden, taking my camera for a walk!
Talking of all things pretty, I was the only bidder on these little vintage Irish Linen beauties recently...
They have such pretty little scenes embroidered on to them.
I'm quite taken with them!
The jury is out on what I'll do with them!
Meanwhile, I have a date at a country fair next weekend,with Amanda, and I've made a few little bits to add to my stock..lavender sachets from some vintage scraps...pinnies from left over remnants.
