...  Dove, as you would expect, i didnt notice any mistakes! But very glad you posted as i had totally forgotten about winterwatch   ...

Hope you noticed that it's at 9pm and not 9.30 as I put in the heading

Oh bu$$er - I've started a thread about Winterwatch starting on BBC2 this evening, and I've put the wrong time in the heading and I can't change it  I've asked the mods if they can change it, or if not if they can remove the thread and I'll start it again.  It's a pain not being able to correct headings

Whoops!  I've done a typo in the heading - I'll ask if the Mods can amend it!

Panda!!!  Sit down and have a cuppa - take it easy - are you at work today?  Watch out for signs of concussion (you could get sent home to sit quietly with your feet up for a couple of days )

.... I see we got a new wum early this morning. I hope no one takes the bait.

It's been reported to the Mods Fidget - as you say, I hope no one takes the bait - it's been quite peaceful here lately. 

Keep warm and safe

Good morning all

Temp in the back garden down to -2.2C last night but it's already above freezing in the back garden now.  Think it's a lot lower out the front - there's snow on the grass and the roads are gleaming with black ice. 

The difference between the back and the front in cold weather is quite remarkable - the back is protected from the cold air rolling down the hillside as the gardens are terraced up the hill.  All our most tender plants are in the most sheltered corner behind a trellis fence and also protected by the stacked garden furniture and the pots are bubblewrapped.    Fingers here are crossed.

Improving Water

Leave the water as it is - it's a really bad idea to feed plants indiscriminately - only add measured amounts of feed to watering cans of water when the plants need feeding.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Fidget, I've spent most of my life out and about in the countryside and always wanted to see an earthstar but never have. Thanks for the photos
