Good morning all   G'day and Get Well Soon Pat

Still some snow on the veg patch and car roofs, but the garden thermometer only went down to 2C last night. 

Just had a phone call from OH - the GC car park is very icy and he skidded and fell off his bike ... be careful out there folks ... especially in GC car parks!!!

How much bird food do burds eat a day?

We feed the starlings few.  They're on the RSPB's amber list because their numbers are declining so rapidly.

I think that it's probably no coincidence that there's an increase in reports of leatherjacket damage to lawns at the same time that starlings are declining.

Wasn't that submarine wonderful?! 

I think it's be great for David A to be able to do all that - he's no spring chicken any more - I was at an exhibition opening where he was a guest a couple of years ago and I stood next to him for a while - he has the most beautiful skin and  such a twinkly smile.  I'm so glad he's still having adventures

Miserable weather - wet, windy and dark

Have spoken with Wonky - she's still feeling a bit grim. 

Roll on spring ...
