We had our cold spell on Saturday night Nut - had to break the ice on the bird bath in the morning

Gorgeous blue skies and sunshine here in Norfolk this morning - the birds have only one thing on their minds 

Where are the ladybirds and grasshoppers

Posted: 14/01/2014 at 17:34

We had plenty of grasshoppers and crickets too - some of them came indoors and had to be taken out again - they seem to like being in our rather rampant herb garden near the back door 

We only had a few ladybirds last summer, and we saw most of them towards autumn - I agree with MMeerkat and think that long cold spring is to blame.

We haven't had any cake 'cos it's a Fast Day - supper in half an hour (cold rare roast beef and HM coleslaw)  ......... then we can have a piece of cake for pudding 

Toad in the Hole KEF?  That's a favourite here - think it's a possible for next week   mind you, we might need to fast more than usual next week - we've got a weekend of eating out with friends in London coming up

Yep, all I'm going to do today is make a quick coleslaw for supper - apart from that it's feet up and knitting time.  

Anyone putting the kettle on?  There's an Apple and Apricot cake cooling in the kitchen

September Raspberries

Autumn-fruiting raspberries don't grow as tall or need as much support as the summer fruiting ones - there's information here

I've put some more on the photos thread KEF 

Verdun, I occasionally wonder whether the golf club would miss a few barrowloads of those leaves, but really don't think I could push a barrowful up the hill
