Tea Garden

there's always something to do

blackbird returns


beautiful blackbird image from www.naturalia.org When we moved into the Tea Garden I was surprised by the lack of blackbirds. Our last place had blackbirds a-plenty, but here, in what I would’ve thought was an ideal suburban environment – hedges, lawns, shrubs – so, where are the bids?

Well, to my ‘joy’, the birds have arrived and have commenced doing their famous scratch in the garden routine. In amongst my carefully planted, mulched, fertilised, and bark covered spring bulbs. The bulbs are beginning to come away, and suddenly the birds decide to scratch them out, and heave the bark over the footpaths. I’m trying to remain charitable…

So, what do you think ?
