I'm here Lizzie
Just had my dose of Winterwatch. Love seeing all the wildlife we have on our doorsteps ......fascinating stuff. We have buzzards here - recognised the cry as soon as he appeared on the screen - great to get a close up view, as ours are normally flying many feet above us. Quite worrying just how wierd this winter has been already though .....the climate is a changing, there is no doubt about that
Littlest chicklet felt todays crop of exams went ok ...another lot on Thursday and then she can relax for a nano second before the next lot are upon her. Don't believe anyone who tells you today's kids don't have to work hard at school.
Lesley - will definitely be giving cleomes another go this year, but will wait til April before I start them off. My early sowings will be rudbeckia, echinacea, scabious and verbascum
