In contrast to the daffodils that I’ve mentioned and shown here recently there’s also a group which comprise various colours and shapes of unknown varieties which I was given some years ago.
They include some which have multiple small white and lemon-yellow flowers on each stem.
There are also several frilly yellow ones,
and some white ones with either orange or yellow centres.
Although they’re pretty I’m not that keen on them so I may dig them up later in the year and replace with one or two varieties that I really like.
On Sunday morning as I was leaving the site I noticed a fox sitting on one of the grass areas. I stood and watched it for a few minutes until it padded away along one of the paths. It’s the best view I’ve had of one there in the last couple of years.
On Monday I stood on the plot and watched a crow pecking on the flower patch ground. It then moved to the dustbin lid pond where it drank some water. Yesterday as I arrived on the site the crows were making a right commotion and looking round they were congregated in the nearby fence-line trees. Looking up I then saw three birds wheeling round, one was a crow whilst the other two were birds of prey, possibly sparrowhawks. Unlike the resident crows these birds are very rarely seen hereabouts so it was wonderful to see a pair.
Have a good weekend!
