Garden Visitors

To be part of the hive of activity going on in our garden, we need to stop, be still, wait and watch.
All of our senses are brought to life, sweet bird song, warm sun touching our faces, the most amazing floral perfume,sights of natural beauty and the tastes of Spring.



Our visitors are many and so varied, our garden is full of life, learning and love.



O is enjoying the ducks visiting our front garden, he quacks along with them.



Our nest found in the tree house http://abigsmile4.blogspot.com/2010/04/garden-treasures-inc-30-days-of-beauty.html is the home of a lovely pair of Robins.We have been watching them from a distance, busily preparing for their new arrivals.
We also have Blackbirds nesting in the hedges in the front and back gardens.
Thanks to 5 Orange Potatoes for this wonderful getting outdoors project and for making us

It's so good to spend a moment in the garden just noticing who else is sharing the space.

Love the visitors! We have been really enjoying all of our little friends. Ducks would be so cool, not likely though.
