Glad I don't have cows, or any other critters, to see to this morning - its cold out there.  Well at least my yellow rattle seeds should be stratifying nicely.  Think my aeonium swarzkopf is probably a gonner tho.

Thanks for the reminder Dove - would have missed it without your nudge.  Loved the Blakeney seals - been there a few times in the summer months on one of the little boat trips.  And the tawny owl asleep ..... Hope he doesn't come a cropper

Temperature differences can be quite something can't they.  Far more aware of them now most cars have temperature readouts.  We have a long straight road here where the temp is 2-3* lower in the middle than at either end, and often the middle is misty when it is clear elsewhere for miles around.  The chicklets say its haunted......but is probably to do with the fact there is a large lake in the middle

Good Morning one and all

Chilly here - expect it is much worse elsewhere - even Verd might have had a frost last night.  Keep warm and safe - its slippy out there

Our last house backed on to a school Lesley - we quite liked it, as it was happy noise, confined to weekdays between 9 and 3, so didn't really affect us too much.  The building work is a different matter of course, don't envy you that at all.

went for my walk, and my legs have now seized up.  Time to go for a long soak

Anyone done any gardening today?
