Don't you think these flowers looks as if they are made of tissue paper. But I can assure you they are the real thing because I sneaked this picture at the garden centre.
I couldn't make up my mind which picture I preferred so I put them both up. :))

This is totally unrelated but yesterday morning I was sitting having my breakfast and I was hearing an awful din. I looked out of the patio doors and saw on the roof on the house at the bottom of my garden a bird fight. It looked quite nasty too. I have never seen anything like this before.
There was about 6 magpies and 3 crows. It went on for about 10/15 minutes - they were dive bombing each other and making an awful noise.
Finally it looked like one of the magpies was injured - it was sitting quite still on the edge of the roof. Then all of a sudden it fell onto the next level of the roof and lay upside down in the gutter.
It was amazing how quickly the birds all disappeared at this point and we didn't hear or really see another magpie all day after that.
It kind of made me think of that old Hitchcock film "The Birds" - do you remember that one? Scary film!!
We have lots of these what I call bully birds around here - magpies, crows and seagulls.
The wee birds don't really get a chance. I do sometimes hear them - which is lovely - but don't see them very often.
