Another bright morning as reported in my morning blog and as promised I cut and strimmed the grass, I had it all finished by 11. While mowing the back I spotted this bloom. Do you remember how I found that thick stemmed plant growing? I left it to see what it turned out to be,wasn't that lucky? another Sweet William,I now have three little clumps growing in different areas.

The cats aren't as keen as the birds on the new feeder this is as near as they can get now,watching from the windowsill.That isn't dirt or a spotty Sooty by the way but an early morning shower of rain. The have their new loud bells on now,not loud enough to annoy them but loud enough for the birds to hear them coming. Maybe the slaughter will stop now I hope so.
