Garden friend

Hello everyone!

This is a quick post to show you a little friend that we have in our garden at the moment. 

Isn't she beautiful?  I say she because she seems to be feeding chicks, but I suppose that could be a he as well!  She goes in and out of a hedge in our garden often and always comes back to this post on our decking with something in her mouth.  It looks like she might have a few flies in this mouthful!  I would love to see the little babies she is feeding.  I've always thought thrushes are beautiful birds, but you don't seem them too often so I feel very fortunate that this one has taken residence in our garden for the time being.  

Yesterday I made these which have gone into my Etsy shop.  Some more little booties which I love making!

Thank you to everyone who has been reading and commenting and hello to my new followers!  It is so exciting to know that people are looking and I appreciate the time you take to read and comment so thank you!


  1. What a good picture you've captured of your garden friend! Love the booties, so sweet x

  2. Another gorgeous photo!

  3. Ooh I wish our garden was birdie friendly but sadly as its so small - more of a yard than a garden (and we have a naughty feline) - feathered friends do not venture in. Such gorgeous booties too!

  4. What a wonderful action shot of your little friend with a beak full of food! I love watching the birds in our garden too, they work so hard and are so thorough at checking the flower beds for insects. Those little booties are so sweet, they remind me of Little Red Riding Hood.

    Have fun! X

  5. Lovely photo of your birdie friend - aren't you lucky to have her in your garden?
    Cute booties too :)

  6. Hello, lovely picture of the thrush. We have a pair nesting in the garden too and often hear them smashing snail shells to get the juicy treats inside :( I found a huge pile of shells in an empty pot so they're very good for the garden. Love your hens, they're great fun aren't they! xx
