just before it rained

sitting outside at Betty's house, her cat free garden allowing birds to come close for crumbs.

Very sweet! (Claire, do you take your camera everywhere you go? Just curious, not that I mind!)

Granny said...

I like that tower, whatever it is.

And the birds.

Your robins are so much more delicate looking than the North American variety.

Lowa said...


Looks like a lovely garden your friend has.

Those birds would be fine at our place. Our cats just sit and stare at birds, squirrels, etc. It is other cats and raccoons that they tend to get up to do anything about!!

we alway look for the robin in the spring it is one of our first birds. I also think your robins are small than ours.

Connie and Rob said...

Very pretty!

Take care,

Janice said...


Nice pictures, and you got so close to the birds.



Sigrun said...

Lisa said...

Wildside, I do take the camera everywhere I go, in case I miss something, I saw a fantastic sunset in Glagow on Monday but couldn't stop to take it, I was on an eight lane motorway bridge at the time. . . .
Granny, its a japanese tower, candles can go in the windows, I am quite jealous and want one!
Madcapmum and Patsy, I like robins, they can be quite bold and are not shy of beggin worms of gardeners.
Lowa, betty does indeed have a lovely garden, and a really nice way of putting plants together
Connie and Janice, thankyou, I am glad you like them
Sigrun and Lisa, this is my friends garden, which I admire very much.
