The grass is growing very quickly and around the trees in the front garden is getting very long. Too long for hoopoes!
I bought some plants at the plant fair at Chateau Neuvic on Sunday, together with 2 metal hoopoes as my grass is too long to get the real ones in my garden. The plant fair was lovely, very cold but most unusual herbaceous plants. I have been collecting the metal birds and animals at various plant fairs, the next one being in Saussignac in 2 weeks time, and now have a lapwing, 2 magpies and a cat as well as the hoopoes. When I have made my pond next year I will buy a heron.
