As August Ends
Hello :) As August comes to an end the garden still has pockets of colour, lots of bees, and a Mr Blackbird who is looking a “little worse for wear”!
I finally managed to get some photos of a male blackbird whose been visiting the garden this week. It’s been really quiet for the adults but this ones been in collecting food. I took the photos through a double glazed door, which I was stood some distance from. I wasn’t able to get closer as it agitated the blackbird, so I stayed back. It was also quite a dull morning too. All in all the pics are better than I anticipated.
The flowers still look amazing and I’m loving the mix of colours. From the strong reds of the marigolds to the delicate orange and yellows of the potentilla flowers. The vibrant pinks and purples of the hydrangeas to the delicate pink of the rose. There really is a rainbow of colours. They aren’t all popular with the bees. The flowering herbs are still the most popular, but the bees seem to like the marigolds too.
