Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Posted: 23/02/2017 at 07:06

Good morning all   Hope everyone has their hatches well battened - especially those of you in the north and west - hang on to your hats! 


The car alarm decided to wake the neighbourhood a couple of times around midnight last night. I had to get up and go and open and close doors and windows - no real idea what it thought the problem was, but it seemed to do the trick thank goodness

They did want scruffy urchins for their historical re-enactments Wonky, but they weren't prepared to buy any - believe me ... I asked ...

Back from a lovely if a bit damp and blustery day at the seaside. Squid n chips and passion fruit ice cream for lunch, and we've brought a lobster home to grill and have with salad for supper. 


Currently flollopped on the sofa. 


Sadly we've abandoned the plans for a snowdrop walk tomorrow as East Anglia has an amber weather warning. Not a good idea to go wandering in woodland

Sadly we've decided that it's sensible to cancel this - there's now an Amber Weather Warning for East Anglia tomorrow, so not a good idea to go walking in woodland, and the likelihood is that the woods will be closed to the public anyway. 


We'll look out for opportunities to see daffodils and bluebells in the coming months. 


Tree ideas please

Even evergreen trees lose their leaves, it's just that they do it a few at a time throughout the year, so that can make it even more difficult to keep them out of the water. 


If the pond needs shading, water plants with leaves which float on the surface do it for us - water lilies or water soldier for example.
