Sunrise, Garden Birds and Flowers

03 Nov

1   Sunrise from our own windows can be as beautiful as those we’ve seen while in India and Nepal.

2   It is always a joy to watch the birds in our garden. This morning we have seen the blue-tits  a pair of great tits, a male blackcap but not his mate, some hedge sparrows, goldfinches, blackbirds and a stunning pair of magpies and all in just a few minutes.  They are enjoying the berries of the Berberis and the seeds on the fennel as well as the fat-balls and various seeds that we put out for them.

3   It’s very pleasing to find so much still in flower in November too – a couple of Dahlias, Chocolate Cosmos (which has been in flower for months) Fuchsia and Viburnum, Kashmir Lilies as well as Heliotrope and Verbena.

      Thank you for the shout-out! I have a delightful video of all the birds at the table but can’t upload it. Do you know if I have to up-grade to be able to add a video? All the best to you :)

    I love Fuchsia flowers – what a beautiful picture! I never had much luck with them as we have a windy backyard so I stopped buying them. But they are beautiful! Such vibrant colors!

      They are very pleasing to grow, especially since they will keep going until the first frosts, long after most things have died down. Thank you for calling in and commenting. :)

        Thank you for your kinds words. You need to click on the “title” of the article in order to comment. A definite flaw in the style sheet. :)

    Wow, these flowers are in your vicinity? The fuschia is IRRIDESCENT. Red, & fuchsia are truly favourite colours.

    Your joy of life is felt this far away. Thank you, for that.
