Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

The Parakeets Are Coming

The Green Ring-Necked Parakeets have been resident in Surrey for some years but this is the first time I have seen them in our neck of the woods in NE Surrey.

I first spotted them on a next door-but-one neighbour's tree on Armistice Day
(Wednesday 11-11-15)
How does the song go?
Ten Green Parrots Sitting in a Tree!

More recently in the next door neighbour's tree eating the fruit there.

But today they ventured into our garden.

Not sure if I am pleased or not.

They do look exotic but I hope they don't discourage our abundance of native species.

How wonderful!!!!!! But I bet they are noisy! x

They are fabulous, BJ - so colourful. I doubt they will ever make it this far up - too cold. xx

They are lovely birds, but rather noisy.

Hope you've had a good day. Sue

I stopped by to wish you a lovely Christmas, too. I've missed your posts and visiting you. I hope to rectify that in the new year.
So, have a joyous, safe, and glorious Christmas.
