Hello, it’s been a while since I posted and there are a lot of things that have been going on.
First things first, I must apologize for not updating you; a family member died suddenly, I was shocked and didn’t really feel like blogging, after that a close family friend had a life saving operation on her heart recently, so it’s been a bit frantic (especially for an introvert like me).
I do have some pictures for you that were taken some time ago and have been edited though.
These two photographs are of a male Kestrel near where I live. 🙂
They are fabulous birds of prey and I wish that I could have managed to get a photograph of them hovering as they are looking for prey.
This squirrel was a visitor in our garden throughout the summer, I left out a supply of nuts in the tree and it didn’t seem to come to any of the feeders and pinch the birds or other mammal food that I left out. 🙂
I will try in the coming weeks to get a more updated blog out about the garden; I hope everyone is enjoying the late summer/autumn?
I went to a large park a couple of weeks ago; it was back when we had temperatures over 30 degrees or roughly 93 fahrenheit (for those of you who use that form of measure of heat). Fortunately I went early in the day so I didn’t get the massive heat and I also stayed pretty much in the shade wearing my large brimmed hat and lots of sun cream. 🙂
I thought I would share some pictures of the deer there.
This young female was keeping cool in the heat, although you can’t see there’s a pond just to the right of the photograph.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I last posted, but summer is here, the garden is in full swing now with vegetables growing, juvenile and adult birds coming and going on our feeders, with summer flowers in full bloom. 🙂
To start off here’s a picture of a special visitor to the garden.
Hi, I thought I would explain why I hadn’t been blogging recently.
A family member and someone I was very close to unfortunately had bone cancer (which is incurable) and passed away earlier this month; I have been doing a lot of thinking, especially about that person and thinking about a very close friend and someone I care about a lot that I haven’t been able to talk to since November 5th 2014.
My garden has become my little oasis and being an introvert this has helped me come to terms with the death of that family member and get back to my old self again. I am going to start blogging properly again when I have sorted out and edited some of the photograph’s I have taken while I’ve been away.
We have blue tits in our nesting box on the conservatory and this is a shot I managed to get (edited today).
I hope everyone is ok and in good health and enjoying the spring. 😉
