I see these faces from the kitchen window.
You'll discover I like 'The Green Man' in his many guises.
This King has been with me for over 20 years.
His 'crown' of flowers has gone over a little now.
Well it IS a face of sorts!
Such a happy face to greet me each day :o)
This poor chap was rescued and moved to here after the ivy completely covered him on another wall in the garden.
What can I say about this one? Only that strangely, I like him!
This serene soul sits at the back of the pebble pool.
And a flower or two...
The hydrangea brought from my Mom's previous home
The David Austin 'Wisley' rose...I'm disappointed with this I've asked many folk and NONE of us can detect ANY perfume at all :o(
One of the bay trees and pots at the side of the back door.
The pebble pool is just off to the right.
And the other side of the door...Sid's cat flap even has a covering of flowers!
(This shows part of my kitchen window too)
A few more faces..
This sweet little face is watching ...
This sweet little face, who in turn is looking after one of these*
Sweet little faces (three of them!)
And then there's..
Who were rescued from my Aunt's garden when the house was cleared.
The now snuggle together at the base of the 'whirly-gig' washing line!
This big Bhudda is unloved by all except me :o)
Then there's this little fella,
With his lady wife who abide next to the side door of the garage -
rescued from a box of junk and re-homed by me years ago.
Finally, a few more flowers...
A new this year double lily, sorry no variety.
Pretty, delicate looking Corydalis, that self seeds and fills my borders with colour for at least nine months of the year.
As you can see my garden is as eclectic as my home!
* Back to the three baby blackbirds..
They've had a lucky escape this week. I popped out to the shops on Tuesday morning and they were being fed by Mom and Dad. When I returned the nest had tipped over and one baby still clung on but two of the babies were in mortal danger lying, breathing, in the border. I cannot touch birds, I love them but couldn't touch them - so I made a mercy dash to my kind new neighbour Sarah and asked if she could put the babies back. She didn't hesitate. I lifted the nest back into the crook of the branches and Sarah placed the babes gently back in. (Phew, Sid was still asleep on the bench - missing all of the exitement) Later on after making sure Mom and Dad had returned to feed the young 'uns I wired the nest into the crook of the kiwi, hence the green garden wire zig-zagging across the side of the nest!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
