  1. I'm a big bird watcher! We feed a lot of birds in our garden too, your robin pic is really lovely. I hadn't heard of soya blocks, good that the birds like it so much. Your card is lovely too :-D

  2. Hi Lillian, love the nature photos! A busy loking desk. Sarah #12

  3. Pretty cards Lillian, and I assume you are a bird fan. I love my garden birds and am interested in the soya blocks you mention. Where do you buy them (pet shop?) and do you just put them down on the ground and the birds eat them? They would be ideal for my blackbirds.
    Hugs, Neet 2 xx
