I’ve got lots done on the plot this week starting with planting the rest of bulbs, mostly tulips and a few daffodils, on Monday. On Tuesday I donned my leather gardening gloves and pruned the blackberry bush which had got unruly. Yesterday I cleared the cornflowers Polka Dot which flowered profusely for several months. These were the last few flowers.
This morning when I arrived I could see the teasel seed heads moving but there was no wind. Moving closer I was delighted to see several goldfinches on them for the first time at long last! I stood and watched as they removed and ate the seeds. Later on they flew back and briefly perched on the dog rose.
All week the robin has been my constant, and generally close, companion.
Have a good weekend!
