Yesterday evening, after a later than normal evening meal, I was gazing out into the garden. I'd had a good day out and was enjoying a (very small) glass of Merlot as twilight enveloped the garden.
Just as I was reflecting on how the simple things in life (such as a good wildlife day) can bring, I heard a bird singing and, high up in a tree, a Song Thrush with its beautiful song, heralding the end of the day and the start of the night.
Today, as I'd spent so much time out and about recently, I felt I should cut the grass and do some much needed gardening.
The weather was glorious - just right - the sun gave warmth of about 70 whilst the air was fresh. I even sat outside whilst I had my sandwich for lunch. I got so warm gardening that I changed into my shorts - not a pretty sight at all but great for gardening! I love this weather!
The tadpoles in the pond are numerous - be exciting if they all make it to be frogs!
(Very difficult to get pictures)
Many pond skaters are about - it's amazing when you see how they stay on top of the water!!
"My" robin (I believe the one that was ringed in January 2008) kept me company and watched my antics from the apple tree.
And the tulips are now in full bloom.
I got most of what I needed to do done, BUT, having cut about 3/4 of the grass I then managed (I still don't know how) to cut the electric cable as well. PHEW! That was a very scary moment but fortunately everything was OK.
I'm lucky in that I have a lawnmower service place around the corner, so my mower is now awaiting a rewiring job. Whilst I look at a job half done!
Hey ho! Hopefully it will be released newly wired tomorrow and I can complete the task!
