A couple of weeks ago, younger bro and his family dropped in for a quick visit. They gave me some sheep's wool, which they found on their travels, so I hung bits of it up on bushes round the garden. Saw a goldfinch take a beakful of wool and fly off across the garden to nearby trees.

Just spotted a load more miner bee holes in my garden and got excited! They are very shy but I would love to get a photo of them.

It's official - the first of the flag irises is out.
Spotted from the kitchen window this morning. Soon the area to one side of The Last Homely House will be a mass of yellow and green

Porch stripped out. Replacing old panelling with tongue and groove softwood. Lots of mitre cutting into the corners. Oh such fun! πŸ™„

The UK apparently has a safeguarding minister in the government. Rachel McLean.

Who knew. Anyway.

Problem is the advice she gives to people won't keep them safe.
