Springwatch at Cove

Anyone following Springwatch on the beeb would have seen all sorts of antics from the birds and the bees on their telly.  Well can tell you we have our own set of swallows nesting in the barn and was really excited to see a ‘banded demoselle’  dancing around my workshop window today (didn’t know what it was till we saw it on springwatch!) absolutely beautiful with irredescent blue wings, lovely to see.  We’ve had the ducklings who have been and gone (probably RIP) but our very secretive moorhens have had chicks and we saw a lovely fluffy black chick last week, they have gone into cover within the iris and bull rush that has taken over the pond so they may have a good chance.  Every now and then hear a ‘cheep’ so they must be there still..

On the plant front…bedding season is really with us..and after a really busy Bank Holiday we haven’t much left;  but we do have some  beautiful fuchsias, million bells, surfinas and more to make your baskets and tubs look fantastic.  We have on offer 10 for £10 s0 thats about right 5 plants for 2 baskets!  Have planted some ready made to go  also (took me ages to decide what to go in) so if you can’t be bothered you can pick up some baskets all done and ready!

And finally still having problems uploading pics so can’t illustrate this blog but as soon as we get it sorted will have loads for you!
