More Garden Squee From Me
My fiance dragged me kicking and screaming into B&Q today. I DO NOT LIKE B&Q! However, I accidentally bought stuff and came out smiling. I found a bird feeder containing thistle seeds which was good enough on its own - the Starlings won't go for it but the smaller garden birds (Robins, Blue Tits, Greenfinches, Goldfinches) will. Better yet? I have a Dogwood! Not the Siberian Red that I fell in love with when my fiance bought one for his Mum for Christmas, but a Midwinter Fire which is equally as beautiful! It's a very young one and I can't wait for it to take hold and develop more of those lovely red, orange green and yellow colours! The Dogwood is now in my shrub border behind my Blue Moon Rose and Charlie's Rose bushes. I still have space for the Lemon Verbena I'd like if I can find one, but will be monitoring the growth of the Dogwood first. It's so pretty!!
