Although there were mainly dog walkers on the beach they all respected the Gull Gang and left them alone. Wanged their balls and frisbees in other directions.
Back home and into the Shedudio I was making cards. And watching birds. These young Sparrows were experiencing water that could be drunk and bathed in.
Very important to put out water, not just for birds, other beasties need water, particularly as we have all experienced such hot weather. The birds, and others, cannot get worms as the ground is so hard, so feeding them is equally important. We feed year round. We get so much pleasure from watching them it becomes a small price to pay.
It was cool enough for me to have a mosey round the garden.
A particularly beautiful rose by the patio. I asked the DP to prune earlier and it has paid off. Ones in the front garden too, which I hope,if this coolness continues, to photograph. Most of them we inherited when we bought the house. But I then became enamoured of the rose so we have bought a few which have flourished.
So - as this government of total nincompoops takes us to the brink of disaster it is welcome to view such beauty.
