Been trying to summon waxwings by putting apples in the trees, but no luck, as far as I know. I think this has been nibbled by a crow.
Spent some time in the garden yesterday for the first time this year. So rejuvenating after a week or so of feeling lazy and sluggish and awful! There are crocus! Tiny rhubarb buds! Common hepatica leaves! WeeeEEeEeEEe!
I put up two more birdhouses. Reluctantly put one of them up behind the garage where there is a perfect secluded spot. I won’t see it unless I make an effort to, so I’m praising myself for putting the well-being of the birds before my own bird-viewing pleasure. ;p The neighbours get to see it though. I hope we’ll get more bird families this year! The great tits last year were so very entertaining.
It’s going to take a loooot of work to sort out all the pots from last year… There are maybe 140 of them, all still filled with soil and dead plants. At least I’ll get a lot of soil to fertilize and re-use.
Soon soon soon it’s time to plant stuff…
