Now that the weather is warming up the ticks are comming back to life and they are not picky; humans, mammals, birds, as long as it can take blood, it’s ok for a tick.
My husband breeds birds as a hobby and the other day he needed some help as he noticed one of his birds had a huge tick next to it’s eye and I am the tick destroyer in our household as I have a few dogs and grandkids and a husband of course. And as ticks can be life threatening I check for ticks every day.
I removed the tick on the bird and the bird is ok now.
Have a great week and look out for ticks !!
The roses in my garden have hundreds of buds that will soon open up and change my garden in a lovely smelling place. I can hardly wait !!
Have a great weekend !!

HEN’S AND CHICK’S (sempervivum) IN MY GARDEN
As we had a soft Spring the herbs in the garden were early, so at the moment the chives is in bloom. From chives you can eat the leafs but also the flowers, they look pretty in a salad. But I prefer the flowers on the plant as they are in bloom for a long time and the bees love them, so in my garden the flowers are all for the bees.
