Just heard the cuckoo + nature competition

must be summer time then!

Here's some garden shots:

Katie bought these violas from the supermarket some time ago. They were cheap because they'd come to the end of their best, but with sun and water, they're looking a treat.
Veggies are all doing well. Garlic at the front, 2 1/2 rows of onions, leeks and butterbeans.
Baby blackbird no 1. We saw another this afternoon.
The photo doesn't do the colour of this Gerbera justice - it's a fabulous pink.
Ducks are back! These two were ducklings last year! Very tame, they came into the kitchen soon after this shot.
One of the many Rapeseed fields dotted around the countryside near us.

As this is a sort of nature themed post, I thought I'd mention a campaign and competition I stumbled across in the Country Living Magazine. They are running a campaign to "bring back the school nature table" and are asking schools and families to get out and about, encourage children to enjoy nature and either establish a nature table at school or do a nature project at home. All the details are in the link above, and entries need to be in by 1st September, 2008.
