I don't know where they came from - but for a while I thought they might be setting themselves up in the yard. As you can see, we've been busy spreading compost in the garden and on the lawn - almost immediately it's returned to a lovely green colour. Unfortunately, the grass seed appears to have been eaten by numerous little birds who've moved into the neighbourhood. Hercules, our indoor cat, has been zooming from window to window going nuts trying to follow them. Today was the first day the Japanese tree peony started to bloom - will try to get a good shot and post it tomorrow.
