I think I would call him Dave the Brave if he climbs the trees before cutting limbs off! I use to see tree surgeons culling trees where I worked and I know what a skill it is.

If you are from North Wales we will definitely get your weather but Im not sure about South Wales.

Rach where are you ? I am guessing you are in the UK. We haven't had any rain yet here in Cheshire but I suppose it could be on its way from you. Hope your tree surgeon manages to finish the job you gave him tomorrow

Much warmer now than it was this morning. I suppose colder weather would have improved my bird count as tomorrow I am doing the bird watch thing. Cleaned out the feeders to refill. What a job! Why can't someone invent an easy to wash bird feeder? I made some lovely bird cake with raisins, cheese and lard, mostly ignored so far.

Frank, your memories are lovely and made me smile. I fear that young people today are not so innocent but perhaps that is just as well!  I have lost several of my childhood friends and it is very sad but I suppose that is life.

Lovely here in Cheshire and I noticed all the catkins out on the Hazel trees when I went out. Truly a sign that winter is proceeding in the right direction towards Spring. It was great to see the sun but it does make driving difficult with the sun being so low in the sky, not complaining though.

Your frogspawn dilemma puzzles me as it never appears here until March. It is amazing how it survives ice when it does appear. I think my two goldfish are more of a threat in my pond. I am wondering if they have survived this winter so far. I am looking forward to hearing the courting frogs which usually happens in February. We have had a lovely day here though very cold.

Guernsey I am so surprised that you get frost and ice being so close to the sea. My friend in north Cornwall tells me that they never have frost down there and really enjoys coming back to Cheshire for a glimpse of the white stuff. It is bright and a bit chilly here at the moment but certainly no ice.

Very interesting photos Johnny. I googled the floods in Calgary in 2013 as you suggested and it certainly was a frightening time. The city in your pics looks fantastic though.

Sleet earlier on here in Cheshire but just grey and miserable now. Me and OH will go to our local garden centre later on and claim our free potatoes as offered in my Gardeners' World mag. That should cheer me up, also need some broad bean seeds and some compost. I think I may have a two for one token for afternoon tea somewhere. The day can only get better!

At last! The sun has been shining all day and I even opened up the greenhouse for a couple of hours. It was very misty this morning early on as I accompanied OH to the docs to have his stitches out. The mist soon dispelled though to give us this beautiful day here in Cheshire.
