Hello again folks - we're back from a brisk walk across the marshes - kestrels hovering and woodpeckers drumming.  It's great out there!  And we got back just before it started to rain

Great to see Pdock - ((hugs)) to him and Mrs Pdoc - as Hosta says, 'one day at a time'

Good news about your friend Wintersong - I hope 2016 brings her stability and happiness in her life. 

We're having a lovely day - we've been given some great presents and had some texts and phone calls from loved ones.  Bro has visited Ma and all is very jolly at The Lovely Home - the table is set and the chef has the turkey under control and the presents under the tree will be opened this afternoon (along with the sherry)

Lunch will be ready when we feel like it, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is on in a minute

I agree with Nutcutlet - the native species is what you need.

I'm in Norfolk - I shall keep my eyes open for 10 acres of newly planted woodland and enjoy watching its progress - great project

Don't worry Jo - Venus is shining here

The foxes were out and about here too last night - I heard one barking as I went to bed. 

Hello Pat - glad you had a lovely Christmas Day - the poodle looks happy too

Merry Christmas Jo

What's the weather like with you over there?  It got down to 4.1C overnight here, which is the lowest it's been for ages - about 4.6C here now and a bright starlit sky with a misty full moon in the west  and there's a robin on the hedge who things the world should be up and doing by now

Right, that's you, me and Scullion so far .............

My son has Polish friends - we're thinking of getting them to track down the young Polish chap who disappeared in mysterious circumstances ... I think he may have some vital information ....

How many balaclavas have you got?
