I've been down at Mum's all day today, and we've been busy doing various tasks so no pictures taken.
Except, first this this morning when I looked, bleary eyed, out of the window onto the garden, I noticed it was raining heavily. Just as it stopped I was aware, against the very black sky, how iridescent the colour of the newly emerged leaves were, especially on the Acers. So I took a picture and here it is!!
Now you may wonder, why the caged ground feeder has such a prominent position in this picture. Currently it's feeding my robin, blue tits, the odd dunnock here and there, and my resident wood mouse. The latter has been very visible early each morning for at least the last week.
However, if what happened the last two mornings, happens again by tomorrow morning, I will let you know about the mystery!
Oh and I completely forgot to mention, that when I was in Bushey Park a couple of days ago, I saw my first Swallow flying around, backwards and forwards over the Boating pond. No doubt enjoying the food supply in the early evening. I was sooooo pleased! :D
