Yesterday, two weeks behind schedule in my #walk1000mile challenge I reached 300 miles. Many of my recent walks have been around my garden. Over the Easter weekend the leaves on ‘My Oak Tree’ have exploded into life. Truly amazing!
I bought my 200 mile treat on my last excursion before we were requested to stay at home as much as possible.


The bird bath has been a delight, my garden birds love it. I put it quite close to my house and patio wondering if that would put them off visiting. It didn’t.

The first visitor was a Wren followed by: magpies, a blackbird, a robin, a collared dove, a blackbird & a sparrow sharing the space, 2 Goldfinches and a fleeting visit by a blue tit.
Sometimes they came for a drink but quite often they came to splash around in the bath. The birds are such a delight.

Now I wonder what should I choose for my 300 mile treat…

As the weather is warming up maybe something to do with ‘fine dining’ on my patio; I have a couple of ideas in mind

    i love the way your oak is opening it’s new leaves Cherrie… i remember that you lost a branch on it a few years ago… but it doesn’t take away any of it’s majesty….peter:)

  3. Your treat?
    How about some home made scones? :)

      I have an excellent book on scones and last time I tried they were melt in your mouth delicious ;-)

      But for now just being able to get flour would be a treat ;-)

      I love my garden birds.

      It took me from the 1st January to a couple of days ago to walk 300 miles. Well on schedule for the challenge but a little bit behind for my personal challenge.
