Passion in the garden for one thing!
There's nothing like it , is there? ;-)
And that's what I got this morning, when I walked into the garden
after two hours of teaching!
This little beauty above had burst into bloom overnight .
I have a passion for my garden.
It's been especially lovely this week, not just because of the early summer flowers
coming into bloom but also because of the birdlife:
We have Bullfinches coming to the patio steps to feed...
now that is unheard of here! They are normally rather shy!
We have the Greater Spotted Woodpeckers in permanent residence.
The Nuthatches have returned, which is always a beautiful sight.
Meanwhile, a Jay has found a certain corner of our garden rather to its liking.
Young Blackbirds mingle with the Robin and Dunnock
as they forage for food on the floor.
Two pigeons are always up to antics just outside the lounge window
whilst a male Pheasant struts about in a kingly fashion as if it owns the place!
We've had to order plenty of Niger seed for the Goldfinches and we've filled an extra large
feeder as there are so many Goldfinches here in the garden.
What have I missed...ah I almost forgot the charm of the Long Tailed Tits and the
super cute little faces of their relations, Great , Blue and Coal!
I must not forget the Collared Dove, Thrush, Sparrow, Chaffinch,
Green Woodpecker... oh and we often have Buzzards 'mewing' overhead...
and a Sparrowhawk frequently whizzes through, on a mission!
Both Mr S and I are passionate about the garden birds!
But I think it was the Passion Flower which delighted me most, earlier!
As for the weekend...more passion!
I'm soooo looking forward to tomorrow!
In the morning we are off to a Garden fair and in the afternoon
I will be well settled down on my sofa, ready to watch my
footy team attempt to gain promotion to League One of the Football League.
Had my 'partner in crime' been in the country, (I normally go to footy with Nich!)
I would be wending my way to Old Trafford with him!
I will NEVER forgive him for going to Canada at such an important
time in the football season...LOL! ;-)
I hope my updates of the match catch up with him in Toronto!!
Go Torquay United! (and get to a place with a signal, Nich!!!! )
I certainly didn't expect my team to progress this far, this season so
getting to the final really is a bonus..and who knows,
we might just do it!
Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend everyone!
I do hope that it is filled with 'Passion' , in one way or another!
