I have had a busy afternoon in the garden, weeding for a while and then into the greenhouse, for some potting on and pricking out.



Mrs Great Tit finished her laying and has been sat on the eggs since Easter Sunday, I see her pop out for a little break and then she's right back in there, I counted seven eggs this morning, but I think there may be a couple more at the back out of view.

  1. Everything in the greenhouse looks to be doing really well. Will they all stay in there or do you plant them outside?
    And Mrs Great Tit is doing a good job too. Do you know how long it takes for the eggs to hatch? X

    1. Yes it will all go out in another month after the danger of frost has gone. The eggs will hatch in 12 to 15 days, exciting xx

  2. What a lot of work you have done in the greenhouse, and how lovely to be able to see those birds! How exciting to wait for them to hatch. We have house sparrows who live in the area above our bay window, we watch them flying in and out. They nest there every year.

    1. It is nice watching the birds, we don't have many sparrows here, in the last house we lived in there were quite a lot living in the hedge around the house.

  3. I think our bird has abandoned the nest it was making. We've not seen it for a couple of days-x-

  4. We have just invested in a greenhouse after humming and harring for a long time. No plants yet but it made a lovely warm sunny spot for little granddaughter and me to sit in our deckchairs in on Tuesday! The unopened gro-bags were our beds as well! (The joys of being age 3).

    1. That's great we were lucky this one was here but we did have one when we had our own place, I have sat in there with my tea on a chair before, lovely and cosy.
