Dick’s Day!

The missel thrush (who built her nest in the antlers of the deer head outside the shed) is now raising her second brood, and we hope they will fledge before Dick’s Day! That is next Monday, Spring Bank Holiday! when we hope the sun will shine…the garden looks beautiful, full of scent and colour…look out for a spectacular peony in the round garden.

Ed: image rights demanded by the resident missel thrush have proven extortionate, so we’ve had to make do with this snap of a near relative…
