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
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!)
