Some photos from the last few weeks......
Little bird, garden warbler I think, we saw it a lot in the spring but not recently.
Aquilegia, one of my favourite flowers.
The swans at the Causeway have hatched their eggs. Seven cygnets! That's the most we've seen since we have been visiting this spot regularly over the past five years.
We don't see hedgehogs often here, but we found out that this cheeky chap has been taking the food we leave out for the stray cat. He ate a whole bowl full!
Smudge on his favourite quilt, outside in the sun.
And on his second favourite blanket.....
The stray. Still being fed once, twice or sometimes three times a day. He will eat while I sit quietly near by, but after all this time he still won't let us get any closer, and stares at us as if we are about to throw a bucket of water over him. As soon as he's finished his food, which he always clears completely, he is off without a second glance back.
If only he knew what a safe home he could have, if only he would be brave enough to approach us instead of running away.
