A Garden Visitor and Awards
The recent snow and low temperatures have brought several unusual visitors to my garden including this fieldfare who was kind enough to pose for me a couple of times in return for a regular supply of apples.
Before his arrival there were seven or eight blackbirds enjoying both apples and seeds but they really spent far too much time fighting each other over the apples - this all ended with the arrival of the fieldfare who saw the lot of them off and successfully defended 'his' apples against allcomers!
I have been fortunate enough to be given two awards recently - nita at Kentish Lass and Tricia at Tarragon and Thyme have been generous enough to give me the Lemonade Award for being a blog that shows great attitude and/or gratitude. nita has also given me the Proximidade award for a blog that is 'exceedingly charming'. Thank you both, I'm delighted to think that anyone would apply these labels to my blogging efforts.
