Blackbird pie..........








Hi Sweet-peas....

Out the back of St Biddies we have an orchard that is a bit neglected to say the least, that is the care for the trees.........not however by the pesky blackbirds!!!!!
For the last couple of weeks I have watched these little bandits eat most of what fruit is on the them.

Grrrr....... 4 and 20 blackbirds baked in a pie, sounds perfect.


Maybe I could sell them for a sixpence at the country fair on Sunday.



Hope you all have a wonderful weekend eating bread and honey.......



love V

  1. Oh those dreadful scallywags!! I love how your new home has readymade grazing grounds - my favourite thing in the world is to go outside and raid the garden for a meal or snack. Sadly something that has been missing from my life since renting nearly four years ago. My mum used to rig tin cans in the plum and peach trees in Northland and they were connected to strong string. I swear the highlight of her day was pulling that string about 50 times a day and watch the buggers fly off in terror. She should be in Helga's oppy'd book, Stroppy Sheilas - the air rifle would have been next if the tins didn't work. I wonder what the former residents of St B's did to protect their precious fruit? xoxo

  2. My gawd, St Biddies is like a fairy tale place! You look absolutely, beautifully, perfectly serene here Miss V - I'm so happy for you (and insanely jealous).

    BIG HUGS! Sarah xxx

  3. You look beautiful in your orchard.
    Our apple trees are ancient and affected by blight so the birds and squirrels are actually doing us a favour by tucking in! x

  4. Yet another gorgeous feature of St. Biddies - an orchard, isn't that perfection? Pesky blackbirds... Can't you forgive them though, their song is so so pretty? If not then regular bird-scaring tactics will be required!
    You look beautiful, and already so settled and at home in your gorgeous place. xxxxx

  6. Why you guys have an orchard just when I didn't need another reason to love St. Biddies! You just sit out back with a pellet gun:). You are looking extra beautiful in the frock among those trees!

  11. But if you bake the birds they'll just end up making a racket with their singing and then fly away... I shall be eating bread and peanut butter. What a wonderful garden, orchard...

  13. I love your pretty dress, it's very 40s. Pesky birds, I'm sure there's loads of hints for bird scarers. Nets are great for smaller bushes. Xxx

  14. What a lovely orchard, you've found such a beautiful home. We have a couple of apple trees in our garden, but last summer was so bad in the UK, I think we had about 2 apples in total. The blackbirds still got them though!

  15. Your new home sounds and looks idyllic.

    I had a cherry tree in my old garden which the birds adored. It would be bulging with fruit, but if I left it just a day too long for picking them, they would all be gone and then I would be left with the job of clearing up all the stones, so I know EXACTLY how you feel! xxx

  16. An orchard too? St Biddie's sounds like a dream home. I hope you can shoo away the blackbirds and enjoy lots of fruit.
