    The lupins that I grew from seed a few years ago have been dormant for a year.

    And finally my studio which has been dormant over the festive season and is in need of a gentle awakening and a bit of attention paid to it.

    Aw!
    I always found somewhere for them to drink and bathe was a great pull. Even more than the feeders.
    Too many cats around?

    No cats anywhere to be seen. Next door is full of birds, they have flocks of starlings and sparrows, and we get just the occasional blackbird that has fallen into our garden by mistake. The party is definitely next door!

    Maybe they just need to be away from the fence a bit? It's a puzzle and such a shame they don't come over into your garden.

    Is it only me that reads the theme as "doormats"? Maybe I need help...

    We have a lot of birds dustbathing despite cats - I think it's probably because of the inherited concrete giving them a good field of view. I'm going to have to make sure that I keep some bare soil whatever I do with the place.
    (What's the protocol on commenting on photos in your own competition?, BTW)

    Mine were being cleared regularly until a week or so ago, then no birds. I wondered where they had gone. Maybe more people put stuff out after Xmas?
