mums' tulips

Mum these are the tulips Hazel gave you

Lovely day here, mostly

Hi all. We had sun, clouds and rain today. Did manage to get some replanting done as I had a Hebe that wasn't doing well and I think it was in the wrong place, so sorted that today. I've had some elephants ears that have been in a pot for ages and finally planted them out too. I made 2 pizzas today, 1 for hubby and 1 for me. His had pepperoni, pepper and onion mine had goats cheese, rocket, cherry toms, olives and onion and the other half of mine had mush, onion and cherry toms so nice. I did some bird watching in the conservatory and put some of Saffrons hair in the garden and a sparrow and blue tit helped themselves, great. I got a free bird table last week which is now in use. I'll add a few pictures of what I've mentioned on here, Linda x

It's been a while

Hi all, it's been a while but I'm here now. I'm still busy bird watching and recently bought a bird station. It's great sitting watching the birds but they are a bit of a time waster as I'll make a cuppa and sit and watch. I'll start off by saying I'll watch for 20 mins, that comes and goes and an hour later I'm still there. We had some nice sunny bits today, about time too, so sick of the cold and rain, let's hope we actually get a few days of sun strung together that we can call summer. I made a lovely lemon drizzle cake saturday and hubby and I have about 1 slice between us left, I must give the cakes a break for a couple of weeks when this has gone. I actually managed to get a bit more grouting done in the kitchen the other day and I had to redo some in the bathroom. As I didn't have the correct tool when I was doing the bathroom I don't think I took enough out, but it looks ok now. I bought a new light for the kitchen and it's fab. Recently put new nets up and after taking them up and they look fab, so bright white, love them. Hubby had flu on Easter Sunday and for a few days his temp was over 100' but his much better now, just left with a cough. I never caught it, don't know how but I put it down to having 2 kiwi fruits every night to help me sleep and as a bonus they're full of vitamin c. Enough of this now, must go and let the girls out, Linda x
