Pigeon, Lighthouse and Golden Roses

30 May

A quiet day today keeping an eye on the birds in our back garden. The Pigeon likes perching on the curve of the Cedrus Atlantic Glauca.  The Crinodendron behind is becoming more scarlet by the day.


A Blue Tit family have set up home in our leaning lighthouse nesting box. This is the third year Blue tits  have chosen our garden and we are delighted.

We are hoping that the Great Tit doesn’t have evil intentions as he hangs out on the bottom step.

Our climbing Golden Rose is flowering well. It has rained all day so I haven’t been out to smell them yet.

        It must have liked the cold! I have one too, but much smaller and was worried because the flowers form in the autumn/winter, but they seem to have survived.

    Nice looking pigeon. Do you know the species by chance?

      It’s a Wood Pigeon according to our Bird Book. 🙂

        Excellent! We don’t have them over here … or at least I’ve never seen one in Jo’burg.
