The weather has been pretty good the last few days, which means I spend less time on the computer, and blogs, and more time outside taking pictures. I'll eventually catch up, but it seems a shame to spend warm sunny days on the computer; and when the evening comes, I'm too tired to be very creative on here, after cooking, shopping, and doing 'life' stuff. Not enough hours in the day.
Yesterday was another hot day. A very quick walk round the local lake, and then I decided to get some shopping, and try to tidy the garden a bit.
I like a wild garden; some would say untidy, and they're probably right. It's been neglected over the last few months, mainly due to bad weather, and then me going off to Wales for a while.
Yesterday I gave it a bit of a seeing to, and even got a couple of herbs to put in pots. I sowed some more wild flower seeds; I think the first lot got smothered by the grass growing in the borders, so they got a tidy up too. I've even got a few tadpoles swimming around in the pond, and I came across a large frog tucked away in the undergrowth.
The outcome is a neater looking garden, sunburnt back, and aching limbs. I even updated my website with a whole batch of new pictures of birds from the last couple of months.
Today is cloudy, and light rain, (although now, the sun has made an appearance), so I may get a chance to catch up with people and blogs now.
Anyway, enough of this writing malarky; here's some pictures.
