Good morning Verdun     

Not gardening weather here so another paperwork day - if the day clears out I might go for a walk down to the marshes and take my new camera.

Morning Star gaze lily   Tipping down here too - another day indoors sorting the  paperwork methinks!  OH is still in the Land of Nod - better take him a cuppa - he really doesn't need this much beauty sleep

Bird feeders

Posted: 12/11/2013 at 07:40

We've got a few goldfinches visiting the feeders, but they are never visited a lot at this time of year - the fields and hedgerows in the countryside are still full of seeds and most of the birds are there.

When the weather gets colder the birds move to the relative warmth of the sub-urban gardens and the bounty we provide for them.

I used to have a smallholding - a flock of Southdown sheep (amongst other stock), lambing on New Year's Eve -  apparently I was the only member of our social work team whose qualifications include a Certificate in Castration

Overwintering Yourself...

I make lists - lists of things to buy, lists of things to try, lists of things for the builder to do, and lists for my "undergardener" to see to when the weather breaks and the sun shines - as far as staff are concerned - don't need them - he's coming along nicely
