Garden Visitors

Our Garden is a small private patch of grass and surrounding shrubbiness that is open to the shared wilderness between the backs of the tenement blocks. Buddleia, something coniferous, currant bushes, many potted things, 4 bird feeders and a jewel of a homemade birdtable, expertly constructed from the wooden seat of a chair and an upturned snedded christmas tree trunk, selected from the roadside collection after twelfth night. We make sporadic attempts to tidy it/garden/prettify/prune

Daffodils!

It was considerably colder this time last year
