Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

@cjh123 yes I’ve been developing my 'stealth mode' 😂😂. But they are pretty flighty!

@kez001uk very clever of the butterfly to colour-coordinate! Not something I’m known for! 😂

Not amused. I've noticed some of the branches being broken and because it's by my bird feeder assumed it was the starlings. But no, this morning I caught a pigeon trying to get to the bird feeder I'd hidden in the buddleia for the tits and smaller birds. Made a right mess. Not happy at all!! 😡

They’re such destructive beasts! Got a huge one that keeps sitting on the fountain part of my water feature and he’s so heavy that he knocks the top off every time he flies away! I feel your pain 😤

@bluefox23 🤣 they are cheeky looking things 🤣 just can’t get rid of them once they get a sniff you have food they might be able to scrounge 😂

Make cuttings of the broken branches. Xo and just put out cracked corn and sunflower seeds in another dish for them you can get both in bulk at feed stores and last a while. And they will leave your plants alone. Put the feeder in an area away from your area to keep them out your garden beds. Make a water dish too. And if they keep being a pain pest fatten it up and look up recipes to eat/cook them roflmao
