I have a small urban walled garden of exotics, cottage, topiary, and a coastal garden I can't wait to fill with exotics, cottage, topiary...

😄 I think I managed to get to most of them before the birds did. But it's a war of attrition @sal1

Thanks Jeff. No they weren't actually. I have to keep an eye on them & grab them before the birds get stuck in though, but because they are morellos they don't colour up that much so my theory is that the birds are waiting for them to get to black cherry colour. Could be completely wrong of course 😄 @jeatacake

Yes, they're making up for last year I think, when the birds got most of them 😄😚 @charlottejhurst

The birds have had most of my morellos for my clafoutis so had to supplement them with shop bought. D'you think anyone will notice?

The question is: will the birds get to them first?
