Garden Stuff!

Just a few photos from the garden. New rose buds are opening everyday and the colour is stunning.

This plant was here when we moved in, I don't know what it is but we love the bright yellow flowers, my little one always has to stop and smell them when we go past.

Same with this plant, it has pink and purple flowers, they don't last too long though, especially in this wind and rain we've had recently!

This is one of the Buddleia bushes we bought, still quite small but i'm hoping it has a growth spurt before it flowers.

My stepsons got their Dad a bird bath for Fathers Day so we now have that in the back garden too. Haven't seen any birds on it yet though! We have had 6 Collared Doves in the garden this evening hiding out from the storm in the tree before venturing into the garden for some food, I don't think we have had that many before. There is still juvenile Goldfinch, Blue Tits, Blackbirds, House Sparrows and Starlings visiting the garden often.

So that will be my last post for at least a week or so as I have some minor surgery booked in for Thursday for an ongoing problem. I'll be out of action for a while but it means I should be able to do quite a bit of garden bird watching so that's a bonus!


  1. Beautiful blooms Pam, that rose really is a stunning colour, I hope it is scented too.

    What a lovely Fathers Day present, one which the whole family can share, I'm sure you will have lots of 'customers' on it soon.

    I hope the surgery goes well and that you are fully fit soon. Take it easy, it's a good excuse to sit back and enjoy your garden!

  2. Good luck with the surgery!

  3. So far i've only seen a Robin on the bird bath but we'll see over the next few days!

    Thanks for your comments, the surgery is routine but I won't be able to move much for a few days, should be as good as new and desperate to get out of the house afterwards!
