Course it does! It's worthy of a 'winter month' calendar shot

chicky - glad mr.c is feeling well enough to tinker with his blowtorch

Those sound lovely Liri -  and I don't even like mince pies!

Haven't done ours yet but I found this one from nine years ago in my house round the corner - does that count?

I seem to have several 'pairs' visiting regularly Hosta. I've been here less than three years and hardly saw a blackbird till last winter. They're all puffed up today because of the hard frost,  but they're getting loads to eat  

Anyone else still mowing??

Same here Zenjeff. Timing's everything in wet areas. I got mine cut end of October knowing it would probably be the last. The milder than usual conditions mean that it's grown a bit, but there's no chance of cutting before spring now. It doesn't look too bad compared with other gardens round me where the grass is really too long.

How sad.  I'd rather have a messy plot and loads of blackies any day.    

Fortunately there's loads just now so they're beginning to find their way around my garden. Putting loads of suet treats through the borders is now paying off.  'Mrs' was eating all the berries on a lonicera earlier. Delightful

How strange Dove - and slightly worrying...

Or has OH moved things for a reason and not told you?

Sorry you missed your lemony treat Pat. Night night

Gorgeous chicky. Posted on the camera thread with your 'boot' nest pic. Really lovely  

Took a frosty couple earlier




 I couldn't get the gate open earlier - frozen shut!  There's a slight thaw now but it's very foggy instead

Lovely pix of the changing seasons in your garden chicky. Must try doing that. I expect I have pix of certain bits throughout the year so I should put them together  

I was going to say that too Lesley  

Lovely if it's a wren - I happened to look out the kitchen window just as one scampered past the bench and onto the back door steps 

Verd- you do realise you have to pay to 'come in' here....those mountains take a lot of looking after.....

these two little jokers said hello yesterday too
