Queens birthday weekending

A long weekend spent at one's castle.
:: Still picking tomatoes from our garden, very strange winter.
:: Saw a beautiful rare grey goshawk, after it killed one of our Good Friday chicks. Poor little thing.
:: Lots of tidying in the winter garden.
:: Bloomin' salvias and potato vines keeping the bees fed and happy.
:: Mama counted her cumquats.
:: Peeps counted out their gems

I do hope one is having an absolutely topping Queens Birthday weekend.


  1. Happy holiday to you too, thanks for the comment too I realised it matched my header only yesterday, funny. Tomatoes in the winter, it's been an odd season hasn't it?

  2. Fantastic way of spending a holiday.

    I once had a goshawk kill a crested pigeon in my front courtyard. It was like a crime scene from CSI - so sad, but the goshawk was so beautiful I couldn't help but admire it.

  3. Lovely cumquats, poor little chick....happy weekend to you too!

  4. mmmm we are still picking tomatoes too, strange. weekend has been great, much like yours.
