Today is Mum’s birthday so we have been over to see her (the original plan was to go out somewhere, but I was too tired after a busy morning).
We bought her a bird feeder station plus some feeders and stuff to put in them, so part of the afternoon was spent putting it all together – another reason we didn’t go out anywhere. Mum is very happy with it:
And of course I took a few quick photos of the garden. The retaining wall behind the raised beds has a lovely show of nasturtiums, from a free packet of seeds that came with a gardening magazine.
Until this year we’ve had nasturtiums in the front garden but none have appeared this summer, so I suspect the seedlings have all been weeded out.
A couple of general views:
It’s a year this weekend since we saw the bungalow and Mum put in an offer for it. The garden wasn’t in a bad way exactly but it does look a lot better now.
