Baby Birds

Here is a pic of some baby redstarts in a nest above our front door.  They are very noisy when they're hungry!!

Just spotted Yannick (our farmer neighbour) hunting on our land with his two dogs, not with his shotgun but with a large net on the end of a long pole - now WHAT can he be doing ??!! Watch this space!

Hi everyone.  Cloudy day here.  Catching up on some arty bits.  Thought I would post some photos od bits and bobs I've been making.  The tags are for Carolyn Saxby's super Tag Tuesday challenge which I'm enjoying very much.  Other things just for me! The art buttons I made after watching Julia Smith's tutorial on StrayDreams.blogspot - tfs, Julia!

Bonjour!  Beautiful day here today.  Only problem is that the snakes are coming out to bask and if I have one fear it is snakes!  Have seen two in the last two days - that is two too many!!  However on a nicer note all the veg are flourishing in the potager (I am a potager widow - John is out there from dawn to dusk!!)  and my wild flower garden is budding so hoping for lots of colour soon.  The vines are flourishing in the vinyard and our neighbour Yannick is busy tending to them - very hard work.  I will now share an exciting secret with you - our pool is ordered and work should begin in July - should be swimming in August - yippee!!!!!!!!
