A Look Around the Garden – Day 16 of #30DaysWild

Day 16 of #30DaysWild takes a look around our garden. Robin has still been ill after his injections so we haven’t been able to venture far. Still there are plenty of interesting things to find at home.

Daddy was out in the garden replenishing the bird food when he came across a dead baby bird on top of the wheelie bin. How did it get there we wondered? What type of bird is it?

As for the plants and flowers, all seem to be doing well and have grown loads since I last went into the garden. Even our planter which we put some wildflower mix in amongst other flowers seems to be rapidly growing!

Pretty purple flowers on the Sage
Ranunculus, planted late but still flowered!
Our mixed planter with wildflowers and other flowers. The Daffodils have died back but I’m looking forward to seeing what is soon to bloom.
The nearly dead Hydrangea we rescued from a bin last year is looking promising!
The flowers are bursting out of this planter.

I hope this Peony flowers, it keeps getting attacked by Aphids.

The very last few remaining Deutzia flowers

I need to get out again in the garden and get deadheading! We bought Robin an inflatable pool with a sun shade so no reason why we can’t fill it with blankets and he can chill in there whilst I garden. Hopefully we can do that soon.

How is your garden doing this year?
