More photos from the garden

 Hello! Well, we have finally finished the term today, and I would do a little happy dance if I had the energy! Instead I am sharing with you some photos from my garden over the last week. First up we have a baby blue tit...
 followed by some wild strawberries...
 and a bit of x rated hoverfly mating!
 Here is some soothing lavender...
 and a baby goldfinch.
 Next is a rather lovely self set poppy that I have no idea where it came from...
 and look at the tongue on that bumblebee! Quite proud of this one!
 Here is a shasta daisy
 and a tiny snail...
 Another hoverfly....
 a baby robin...
and my little wood mouse friend, who really likes those pink fat pellets we buy for the birds!
Hope you enjoyed a few minutes in the garden with me. Thanks for looking!

Beautiful photos your garden Sally. The self seeded poppy is lovely, what a lot of petals. I love the little baby birds as well.
I hope you find time to relax now and that we get some decent weather for you to enjoy. It has rained almost nonstop here all day today and it's decidedly chilly too.

Fab photos Sal and I am sure you can guess which is my favourite. Lot's of self sets in our garden as well, amazing how they pop up without any nurturing.

They kept you to the bitter end didn't they, Sally. We finished on Tuesday and DD finished last Friday. It's lovely to have lots of weeks off isn't it. I hope you enjoy them. Love all your photos, that really is a brilliant camera. The mouse is stunning.
