Morning everyone, I think this must be my #bestofapril as the pigeons have abstained from pecking off the buds before it gets a chance to bloom. My April #survivor #spring

I risked it and planted some last autumn. A bit worried I end up with all reds 🤣🤣 I hope I get a purple one 💜💜💜

I know…it’s that blue anemone again! But being as it survived the pigeon I’m it’s biggest fan and supporter. Looking even better than it did before too 💙 #anemone #anemone-de-caen #anemonedecaen #anemone-de-caen-blue #blue #survivor #bestofjuly

Yesterday I was so incredibly excited to see my very first blue anemone about to open. So glad I took a photo. Went out this evening and it’s gone…something has taken it! Gutted! 😢 #anemone-de-caen #anemonedecaen #anemone #anemone-de-caen-blue

The anemone thief 😳 If it wasn’t so sad you could make a film of that 😢😘

Can’t tell you how upset I am. I think a pigeon may be responsible. A pair of them often perch up at that end of the garden. The stalk is still there but the flower head has gone 😠 @pelly @anges @charlotte

Hmm..now there’s an idea..I could always make a film on how to make pigeon pie? 🤔😂 @jacaranda

Yes, bet you're right 🙄 I've had pigeons eat the tops off my Cosmos seedlings recently - such a nuisance!

Sometimes I want to give up when that happens. A week or so ago the pigeons attacked my herbs. But then the next day something good happens in the garden so you keep going.

My Dutch irises opened the other day and were amazing but my phone battery was dead so I didn't take the photo that day. A couple of hours later the rain started and now my irises are flat on the grass. Still flowering and great colour.
