The magic of a woodland garden.......
'You do realise dear, that in a few years you will be living in a wood' The words came with a smile.............I have to say she is right.
The Robins breeding season has been extremely good. There are many juveniles in the garden. The parents have been trying their hardest to chase them away from the garden and some have left. The little chap in the image is reluctant to leave, I think they may have a fight on their hands with this one :)

An autumnal feel............
I believe it came down in a neighbours field.
Bank holiday Monday and it is raining................

Feathers, foliage and foraging.
Whilst sitting quietly I noticed the Sparrow Hawk sitting in the willow. She is a regular visitor, the garden is part of her hunting ground.
It would appear she caught a juvenile wood pigeon today..............I had seen one following its parents around the garden.
Also picked some plums and made some plum brandy for Christmas.....
Today, was one of those days, that was perfect. You know, just an ordinary day, and yet its special......can't tell you why, it just is.

Autumn knocking at the door......
Cooler days and nights are better for a woman of a certain age :)
What is your favourite season and why ?????

Why are hurricanes mostly given a woman's name ?
The weather will be unsettled for the next week..........I wonder if autumn will arrive early???

Raindrops keep falling on my head...
It feeds on marjoram, clover and thistles, I am pleased to say I grow these so it should be happy in the garden should it decide to stay. Sadly, it will not survive our wet winters.
Overnight rain has refreshed the garden. Temperatures have dropped to around 24C (78F).
Pleasant for the garden and the gardener :)

Riley gave Great Grandma a hug.........he has an affinity with the elderly. My father and Riley were very close, he still misses Great Grandpa.
All in all it was a wonderful day. The sun shone, we talked, we laughed, we played.
I could not have asked for more.
