Something tells me he's not so well
I still put him in the pond just in case it revived him
Sadly poor newt was too far gone when I found him, but at least he didn't die squashed on the pavement
I've been getting along with the hedgehog house and fence holes. So here's a few pictures to show what I've been up to
Hedgehog holes along the wild garden boundaries 15cm x15cm
Here is part of the wild garden that I'm still developing, with large stones for the frogs and toads, chipped garden clippings and a wildlife pond
The pond isn't finished as I have to complete the borders but there are frogs already
The hedgehog house finished, waterproofed and in position. It's full of leaves and under a huge shrub
So here it is tucked up nicely. I hope I get a resident
Some images of the garden near the house and another little pond, where the dragonflies energed and my new bird table which was a birthday present from hubby earlier this year.
Wednesday was a beautiful day here in Brixham, very sunny with beautiful blue skies. So I went out a took a few photos of what's going on in the garden. I was joined by my pretty little rock dove (or feral pigeon) who comes to see me every day for some seeds.
The crab apples shining brightly in the sun
The passion plant produced lots of fruit which have ripened into lovely orange fruits which the birds and snails love
A lovely viburnum flowering now
Jasmine (jasminum officinale) just turning colour. I hope it's mild enough here for it to survive although it is in a sheltered spot
More autumn colour from cotoneaster horizontalis which is just about to go into the wild garden by the new pond
The new leaves of buddleja plants are a beautiful silvery colour and much softer than the old dark green leaves
The sun was shining hard onto the leaves of phormium jester and created this lovely texture
I forgot to tell you that I recorded over 60 swallows flying overhead on Friday Oct 4th. The weather was warm and dry and that count was only over 30 minutes between 6pm and 6.30pm. I wonder how many more flew over that I didn't see earlier in the day.
Congratulations to Brixham for making the headlines with the highest value fish catch in England valued at £27 million. Brilliant news for the fishermen and our little town.
Em from Dartmoor Ramblings has been busy recently. I have bought her beautiful and original Christmas cards, and also asked Em to sketch one of my cats. Thanks so much Em, just like CTs Teddy sketch, I love my cat sketch.

I hope the weather will be better than predicted and that my greenhouse will still be standing when I next post!
