It has rained and rained for much of the day today. All the poor flowers are getting battered to bits in the wet. It also stopped any plans I had for working outside. So I thought I would work on an idea I had with an old enamel kettle I bought at a car boot sale recently. I’m always on the look out for items I can recycle into unusual garden planters and this seemed perfect. I added a little verbena I bought in my cheap B&Q finds and it has really brightened up an empty spot.
Yesterday, after looking at the video of the cockatiels trying out the new feeding station I decided maybe it was a little bit too slippery for them to land on. I added an old brick so they had something to stand on and put in their favourite treat of scrambled egg and they seemed to loose their fear straight away.
