These photos were taken last year in September when we were on holiday in Cornwall. We had a really lovely day at Glendurgan gardens on the Lizard and I would say if you are ever down that way, Go! You can stroll through the gardens right down to the Estuary and on the way marvel at giant trees and ferns and other rare plants.

Well my greenhouse is up and being used, there are still a few little things to attend to but it is functional and the plants are back in and I have sown a few more seeds. I will now have to order some mini plugs and browse through the catalogues.
Tomorrow I will take some photos, I had intended to today but what a beauty of a spring day, and so unexpected after the chilly dull and breezy day yesterday, so I spent all afternoon in the front garden, digging , replanting and mowed the lawn.

The wood pigeons are making a nest in the conifer tree in the back garden. I really didn't want them too, now I will be on constant look out with the cats all spring. Their young are so dozy and have a habit of just sitting at the base of trees when they leave the nest... aah! The Thrush has been around a lot too .. is he also thinking nice place?

From my diary in 1999;
March 11th I was in the bedroom, window open when I heard a whoosh! Got to the window in time to see a sparrowhawk trying to nab a sparrow on the hedge. The sparrows made the most awful racket but I think they were lucky as I did not see him with one as he flew awy.
