We got our first crop today,1 Strawberry Looks nice doesn’t it?The rest of the veg are coming on nicely too. We got some poppies off my mother too we just need to plant them.
Our pond Had a visit from another frog today, We did have some small frogpoles in but we think they have left now. I got a photo of the frog today.
Got up early today and watered the plants then spent most of the time looking in the pond. Saw a dead frog-pole so I took that out, I got a bit concerned about the rest of them and thinking the water might not be good enough, So I poured 2 watering cans full of fresh water in. I also saw a red worm like thing in the pond too, I couldn’t get a photo of it because of the reflection on the water. I got a photo of the dead frog-pole though.
I got a bit of video footage of a snail moving under water, Have a look it’s quite interesting to see. Click the image left.
Just been on our walk with Horace, The swans cygnets are doing fine, They are difficult to take photos of by them selves, A bit too active and still a bit clingy but I did manage to get this shot.
We have built a flimsy support to fasten the mesh to that will hopefully stop the cats from using the beds as a litter tray. I’m not really happy with them, I want something a bit more stable but we did just use what we had lying around.
We also got more pea gravel and covered the rest of the garden with that. I think we need a few more bags just to finish off.
We have started to put down some pea shingle in our garden, We also have made our rectangular plant bed into two triangular plant beds, This has made it look more interesting and our neighbours like it too.
Back in 2007 we where asked to do a video for my cousins band Last Gang, They had a single coming out called Beat Of Blue. We where only given a weeks notice and not told what they wanted till we turned up, We had 2 cameras and we filmed them play live, We tried to make it look raw and a bit punky. The light was low so we got what we could that night.
One thing we did do after the nights filming was to go out and film some police action, We underestimated how difficult that would be, We would drive around most nights listening for the sound of sirens then drive off in that direction hoping to get some footage, In the end we got about 8 mins of footage in about 3 weeks.Click the image below to see the video
I decided to go for a night walk tonight, It’s been such a nice day today I thought I would go out one more time.
Quite a nice sunset as well, The swans were settled down for the night and the birds were singing their last song, Very peaceful.
The male swan was a bit protective of his territory today, I managed to get a bit of video of it. Moments before this he chased off what we thought was a fish.Click on the image to see the video.
