BL - stay wrapped up warm indoors - I'm on the sofa with a coffee and buried in Jesse Burton's new novel, The Muse - brilliant and very enjoyable - highly recommended.

When do you normally get your issue of Gardener's World?

Second coffee made and tucked up in bed again. While I was up I pulled a coat on and scattered porridge oats for the blackbirds - there are more than twenty out there in our smallish garden 

Its freezing hard again - I shall go out and defrost the birdbath and gently free up some edges around the pond.

Topbird - so we did  So much went on last year I had it in my head thatOxburgh was 2015 

We'll have to do some research re snowdrop locations ... Anglesey Abbey certainly was lovely - you're right - the Winter Garden is gorgeous
