Flower and bird display

Spring flowers have really come on in my Mum's garden since I was last up there just two weeks ago. The heliathemum plants are a blaze of colour!

The wild area which goes down to the river Churn at the bottom of Mum's garden is a riot of Cow Parsley and Buttercups. There is still a bit of Ladies Smock for the Orange Tip butterflies too.

As in years past, we have a crazy male Goldcrest which jumps up and down continuously at my Mum's bedroom window. It was always on the move, but I did manage to get a couple of photos of it! Manic!

Hi Jenny!
I love this little Goldcrest! He reminds me of my Golden-crowned Kinglet. I think I wrote you back a bit ago, but maybe missed a problem. The gardens are lovely too!

Hi Eve
Yes, they are very similar, tho our Firecrest is probably closer to your Golden-crowned Kinglet. I tried to leave a comment on your blog the other day , but can't remember my password so it didn't work. Not sure how to find out what my password is! When I get my macro lens, I will hopefully be posting more butterflies and bugs and stuff. Love your blog!

Hi Jenny! Well if you look at my first post you will see that I wasn't sure if I would ever be able to even find my blog again, but I managed and most of the time I know what I'm doing!!! Let me know more about your camera and new lens when you have time. I can't wait to see your macros!
Thank you for your nice comment about my blog. It's all really very interesting isn't it...this blogging!!!!
