HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 31/01/2016 at 10:39

Morning late arrivals   Hope convalesences are going well and returned holiday makers are wrapping up and keeping warm

I've done my Bird Count - more than I expected - most of the usual suspects, plus several visits from a jay - shame I could only count him once. 

Leg of lamb in the oven, potatoes parboiled, carrots cooking, cauliflower cheese made, cabbage prepped.  As MIL wants to go to Homebase, pudding may well be icecream from the freezer with some raspberries and redcurrants. 

Now it's time to sit down with a  coffee and see what you lot are up to ...

Morning Panda

Years and years ago I did a First Aid course when I was pregnant - if I'd knelt down I might not have got up again - they put Resusci Annie on a table for me

Thanks Topbird - it was a great day

I've got a busy morning ahead as I'm planning to do the bird count while I listen to the arches and prep the veg and make a pudding as MIL's arriving for lunch and wants to be taken to Homebase as well ........... do you think you could watch the tennis for me .... it's the only way I'll be able to do it

Garden animal droppings

Tetley you may be onto something there   I have seen bird droppings that look very similar especially when feeding on a lot of grain and/or hedgerow fruit .....

Dying Pansies

Posted: 31/01/2016 at 06:59

I find that pansies and violas have really not enjoyed the mild wet weather we've had this winter. 

Lift your pots off the ground so that they drain well - the tulips won't like to be too soggy - but hopefully they should be fine when spring arrives.
