It's ABC Wednesday and F is for Fabulous Flowers and Feathered Friends
F is for Fabulous flowers - a carpet of snowdrops in my header pic and a bright yellow Hamamelis or witch hazel to some flowering for the first time in the border- see pic below.
Just look above at this fantastic little fighter - my Torbay Palm - originally stood approx 10 metres tall -raised from a tiny pot plant and taken by the severe UK weather in 2010-2011 and was cut to the ground only to now begin new growth - next to new plant on the block - the witch hazel.
F is for Feathered Friends - the following are a few pics of frequent visitors calling by for a feast
A greenfinch and a goldfinch tolerate each other on the feeder -
A starling swoops down for a raisin
A blackbird joins the queue for the raisin dish
We have a small colony of house sparrows in the clematis at the bottom of the garden - I love to hear their cheerful chirping - we also have a sparrow nesting box - it is a double dwelling - which is supposed to attract them - but all we get to nest in there is a bluetit !
Finally F is for Friendship far and wide - have a fantastic week
