Glad you're feeling better Pat. Hope that continues

Morning - oops afternoon 

I seem to have ruffled feathers....

Dove - I feel full up just reading that menu!  Glad you got a better bird count today. Weather is such an influence. Even though I do it, I can't quite get my head round it. It just isn't representative of what you see regularly in the garden, so I'm not sure what the data reveals, or how it can be a true picture of what's happening. You could have a wren, for instance, which is often around, but because you didn't see it in that hour, on that day, it could look like there are none in your area.  I'm sure someone more intelligent can explain. 

That was very restrained of you at the GC doc. You can do some nice planning in the comfort of your home now, out of the rubbish weather. 

Glad you're home safe and sound Hosta.  Hopefully your next jaunt will be more successful. Couldn't be any worse really!

Sad about Terry Wogan - another person who was 'always there' and now isn't. The times they are a changing. Shouldn't have said that - he'll be next   

New fence/new garden

Brilliant Lou!  

A blank canvas (or near enough!) is good fun. Did the neighbour have a nosey about it all?

It'll soon start to get back in shape - I think it looks excellent considering you've just had fencing done. There's loads of other things you can put into your shady spaces too. I use a lot of evergreens - it really helps lift the garden in winter.

Yay - Jamie and partner won the doubles   

Anyone done any gardening today?

Broke the ice on the pond for the birds, knocked the snow off the Fatsia and cleared some off the path by the shed for bird food.

Does that count?

Didn't want you all to feel left out with the snow so I sent some...

Curry sounds good archie 

Have a large piece dove - my waistline will thank you for it 

Have you turned into Del boy doc?

Oops - sorry, was sorting photos. It's wearing a bit thin now 

will this do?

Pauline - I wouldn't go that far  

Sorry  doc, I'm relatively tough but I'm not daft! Furthest I'm walking is the kitchen right now! 

Seriously - snow gates are shut at Spittal of Glenshee and it's blizzard conditions in the areas I'd like to go  - even at low level. Roads are only just cleared here 

Love the number plate doc - I expect you're right

If you've been leaving food for it J2202, that's a b****y small tip he's left    

Looks hedgehoggy to me - but the colour and small size made me think otherwise...
