I have a resident blackbird in my garden. Well perhaps it is Mr and Mrs Blackbird - but if so then Mrs is busy (or bored) sitting on a second clutch while Mr wanders between the foliage looking for the odd worm or other tasty morsel. But should another feathered worm eater dare to set foot...... At this point he shoots out from between the foliage at full speed and chases off the intruder in no uncertain terms. They really are quite agressive birds given half a chance.
Book Group this morning - only three of us able to make it but it was an interesting and enjoyable morning neverthless. Our book was 'The Nickel Boys' by Colson Whitehead. Not an easy read - quite a painful book to read but plenty to talk about.
It is a nice sunny day here but very windy, far too windy for Priscilla and I to venture out this afternoon. I am looking out on the garden and can see that there are Gallardias desperate for dead heding and many of them within my reach so I shall venture out with the secateurs right now.See you tomorrow.
