Oh such a lovely sunny day today, but Thursdays are chore days at Fraggle Towers. Much hoovering, washing, cleaning, baking and floor mopping going on.
But always a few moments to find some light and shade
can’t resist some colour because my blossom tree is laden with flowers and it’s too pretty not to share.
The blossom tree is known here as the Happy Eater tree, and regular readers will know I have feeding stations for the birds hung in its branches. Though I had a niger seed holder on it for a few years I only saw goldfinches once on it. This quite annoys me as I see a few flitting around where we live and can’t see what their problem is, none of the spuggies, tits, blackbirds etc have a problem and are constantly visiting. So I moved the niger feeder to the back garden and it’s hung there now for two years, and though the finches fly over my garden, they’ve resolutely ignored it.
Until yesterday evening.
Not the greatest picture, I was hiding behind blinds and shooting through a window plus it was sundown time, but I was so excited to see them up close. At last. Fingers crossed for a return visit!
