Isn't this weekend the RSPB garden bird spottng weekend?
I didn't take part as I forgot, however I still got up early to watch the birds and between 8-10:20 when I went out we had:
There were periods when I wasn't at the table though, like when having a shower and getting ready to leave.
I went out to a garden centre to pick up my silk-tassle bush for the front garden, an early birthday present from my parents. It was so windy and cold outside that we didn't browse at all, I would have liked to check for other plants I wanted. Oh well. I'll be going back in a few weeks as they have all their Christmas decorations and such in, and I'd like some cyclamen to put in pots and bring a bit of colour back to the garden.
Actually, I'm very impressed with the verbena, it's been flowering now for months, as has the Gaura and both are seemingly still going strong. I will definitely get more for next year!
And now for some photos:
and something to make you feel a bit warmer... Peruvian Lily
