The garden is full of birds singing and flitting about feeding their young.
The Robins nest we found in the shed. How long must it have taken
these birds to build this nest, tucked in the hanging hosepipe
We thought it had been abandoned.
Last week we saw a little head and two bright eyes staring at us
it is the female sitting on her eggs, they have been very discreet.
We can't wait to see the feeding activity.
After a lot if hard work, the Rose garden is now finished.
Lots of flower buds are showing on the Clematis.
Here we used some of the willow frames, to replace the rotten ones.
This small area was planted up last year, and is now looking well established.
The small lavender plants have now doubled their size. so I'm looking forward
to some nice perfume wafting my way when I'm relaxing near by.
When the plants are in bloom, it will be a nice show of pink and blue
with a white climbing rose against the stone wall.
I'm glad the hard work is finished, now I can taking it a bit easy for a few days.
Hoping the warm sun we had yesterday,
enabling Mr France and I to have lunch on the terrace will continue.
This seems like a good time for me to get my sketch books and Ink-tense pencils out.
Yesterday I saw this post from Quinn on her blog about getting back into painting.
Quinn is an incredible lady who has so many talents at her finger tips.
She lives and works looking after her goats in severe winter weather conditions.
She keeps her family of goats for their wool which she processes and
then knits into the most lovely items, especially the lacy shawls.
Tell her I suggested you pop over to share her blog.
My back is telling me I've done too much.
I will need to just potter in the garden for awhile
So I'm hoping the sunny weather is here for awhile, then I will relax.
I'll be back soon.
