Small Garden Story

Over some 15 + years, I have been photographing the evolution of my small (85 x 15 foot) garden and it seems a waste not to put these records into some sort of context. Beginning here in April 2010 this Blog is intended to both act as a diary and to share past and present successes (and some failures), pleasures and disappointments with fellow garden-lovers. In due course, I intend to fill in some of the background and early days but that will have to wait until the winter months!

"Let me in..." Chaffinch visitor

If the rabbit wasn't enough of a surprise, for the past couple of days I have had another unexpected visitor but this time one who actually seems to want to be let in to the house.

A chaffinch has taken to perching on a wayward stem of clematis armandii hanging across the kitchen French windows and keeps tapping on the glass.   I wondered if he could see himself reflected in the dining room mirror but I don't think so (have tried closing the door between!) and he even went around to the side window to try it too!

While it is very amusing, I hope he gives up soon - in favour of a more productive pursuit.

Either way it will teach me to keep my windows cleaner.   (It IS a bit of a standing family joke!)
