Welcome to the round up of posts that you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.
Another week that has flown by and cannot believe it is July next week. Our Met office has promised another tropical air mass and I excitedly checked the ten day forecast for our part of Ireland…I am sure you can see why I am not getting over excited…
Today is windy and 15 degrees although it does promise bright sunshine from 6pm this evening.. luckily we have two extensions at the back of the house which is a little sun trap and offers some protection from the wind, and I will attempt to top up my Vitamin D this afternoon with a good book.
I invested in another seed tray to create another bird bath for our garden birds which is proving popular. When the sun is out the starlings in particular enjoy a bath but do tend to be like a bunch of teenagers, trying to achieve a Guinness Book record. The sparrows are much better behaved and the second pool has been a quieter place for them to frolic.
Even though the sun was not out during the week I did manage to snap this shot off to give you an idea of what life is like at Sally’s Spa and Bird Cafe. I did not even have time to move the hose before there was a dash for the pool. Sorry it was not a sunny day but they don’t seem to mind.
They are great entertainment as are the antics of the crows who try but fail to get to the seed tray in the middle of our purpose built bird feeder..
I have been out and about again this week as the recipient of a lovely feature by Diana Wallace Peach.. Diana has always been a supporter of my books and in this post she shares all her reviews over the years.. ending the week on a high.. I hope you will head over to say hello..

My thanks to William Price King, Debby Gies (who is moving this weekend and hard at work) and Danny Kemp.. the place would not be the same without them..
And of course to you for dropping in, liking, commenting and sharing…it is much appreciated.
Thank you for your support and I hope to see you again next week….Sally.
