Angelic Robin And Angel Cakes


There must be Spring in the Air.I have been shopping today and started to clean the kitchen and Oven ready for baking Angel cakes, and a roast dinner tomorrow. The oven was probably last cleaned when the original ghostly gardener layed out the slabs and raised border!
My photogenic Robin was one of a few visitors today. The builders across the buffer zone started to tear up the earth with an excavator.I assume my garden spirits moved away from the hullabaloo and men in flourescent waistcoats.
This cheeky bird wanted soime fatball, but could not cling on to the wire frame, like the Blue Tits. He looked up, and then flew up at it for a quick nibble before flying off.
He looks Angelic in the top photo spreading his wings, and reaching for the Sky (or fatball). A true Garden spirit...
More posts tomorrow.There are some Angel cakes to cook once the oven is cleaned!
