A Project in Greens

There are a number of 'firsts' involved in this posting. This is the first time I've posted on the blog successfully, but after restarting about four times! My friend Pat has supervised me in the past and I forgot to follow part of her instructions. I'll get better, with practise.
This picture is my first water colour painting since I broke my leg...about six weeks ago!
Today is also a Red Letter day in my life as the plaster was removed today, freedom at last.
Well, slow freedom but again I'm getting there with the help of Dennis and Pat.

Feeding Birds

We take a keen interest in the birdlife in our garden, feeding the birds two or three times a day, throughout the year. This really brings rewards and our biggest success this year is the huge population of sparrows, a flock of about 40 birds. This is in a garden approx. 51ft wide and 110ft long.
My husband is a woodturner and he turned the'pods' you can see birds feeding from in the photo. There are also lots of other feeding stations in the garden, attracting a variety of birds.
In my eagerness to 'top up' all the feeders recently I tripped and fractured my kneecap so Dennis has taken over the feeding as well as looking after me!

A Clematis in my garden. Goodness knows which type. That's enough writing for a beginner, just wait for future episodes!!
