I’ve just been watching pairs of pigeons fighting/courting. One of example of how much more entertaining the garden can be in comparison with television.
The other main joy today has been smelling the apple blossom. Why I’ve never before thought to put my nose in the flowers before I don’t know. It was heavenly. And whilst enjoying the aroma, I had the pleasure of watching a bee (a solitary kind, I think) collecting nectar.
Elsewhere in the garden, I watch as the soil gets drier and drier. I emptied the last of the water from the food recycling bin from the council, which I haven’t needed as such since getting the bokashi. It didn’t go very far but at least the apple tree got a little as well as some of the veg.
In view of the weather forecast predicting no rain for at least another week, I also thought it was time to put some water in the lid of the finishing off compost bin, which the birds love to visit. Hopefully, it won’t all have evaporated by tomorrrow morning.
