July 24

The day began with drizzle – rain, but so light it was hardly visible.

The starlings were waiting for something.

Soon they were gone – leaving ‘official’ watchers

The first of the new flowers appeared on the Viburnum. It has rested for about 5 weeks and will continue flowering now for almost 12 months.

A lone purple flower shows that the wire is doing its job! A local cat was constantly digging up this plant! I think we’ve saved it.
