I had just about finished the weeding today when I pulled the bucket out from the store to collect the last bits I found a tiny, tiny fledgling blue tit nestled in the bottom.
Having finished the weeding I had to find another job and spent an hour washing the windows and the car!
Everything is beginning to grow well in the veg garden and fill out. I love the allotment art of Chris Cyprus (do have a look at his web site) and I was pleased to see sonme pictures with some bird scaring bottles on sticks which is one thing I do. They rattle and vibrate. But my veg plot/allotment is never going to be as neat as those in the pictures. Besides the bottles, I have half a dozen sainsbury carrier bags tided to sticks - their bright orange fades after 3 weeks but they make a lovely rustling noise in the wind and seem to be keeping the pigeons and peasants off!!
Hoping for some showers this Friday just to bring a few things on in the garden.
