Colourful character

After watering the front garden I noticed this character on the side wall of the house.

Goldfinch and puncture

Not managed to get out at all today as I was waiting for the puncture on my mobility scooter to be fixed. It’s now been done and a replacement tube was fitted, but I asked if I could keep the old tube and repair it (see extra), so that I can try to replace the tube if/when I get another puncture – at £59 call out and £10 for a tube I don’t want this expense again. I set up one of the Naturewatch cameras to record any visitors to the bird feeders.

Another gazania

This is the first one to flower this year which has an interesting pattern and colours.

My early morning visit to the park today had to be abandoned when I discovered my mobility scooter had a puncture. I’m hoping to get it repaired tomorrow afternoon – £59 call-out charge and £10 for a new tube!

Gazania

This is the first gazania of the year. In previous years they have been a wonderful mix of colours, but so far it looks as though they will all be this colour when they come into flower.

Geranium

This plant always puts on a good show every year – I can remember enjoying it 70 years ago!
