Not often I wake up on a gloriously sunny day and find someone in a tree outside the cottage window.
The lesser spotted tree surgeon isn't often seen around here.
Once on the ground they tend to be pretty nimble, skipping along the river bank, you have to be quick to photograph them.
Then straight up a tree again.
Blending back into the undergrowth.
It's been so like Summer the past three days it's been far too good to stay inside.
The bee's are back. Except, this one which was flying around our kitchen. Our new floor looks great but it can't be that interesting to a beautiful queen bee. Gently captured and put out in the garden to roam.
We even have strawberry plants in flower.Growing Tomato plants.Especially snapped for Caroline, our tomato contest is still going. As I haven't been around in blog land this week I have lots to catch up on, especially Caroline's blog to see how her plants are growing.
Good weather also brings Frank out into the garden, the tweeting of nesting birds is a thrill far too good to miss. He's another year old, hopefully slower this year. Or hopefully the birds will be quicker.
