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 

Garden animal droppings

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...

Camera Corner

I know what you mean about the panoramics David - I do take individual ones at the same time (usually) and close ups/ zoom as well, but sometimes you get such a great sense of scale with a panoramic. I can zoom them in too of course! 

They should enlarge quite well when clicked on though - I think... 

Didn't have that feature on the last camera either, so it's a bit of a novelty for me 

David - what's keeping you then? All aboard.....

Glad your 'area' is ok Panda  

I was going to say jugs but didn't want to lower the tone....oops....

Some of the snow is melting now but we're getting a lot of heavy black clouds dropping their snowy contents!

Decided not to walk today - it would have been a low level one like the one last week, and I'm not that keen on those. Everywhere (for hills) is very snowy/blizzardy and I don't need to be a hero at my age 

Strongest Scented Sweet Peas!

Cupani for me too Perki 

They're one of the original sweet peas Robert - small and beautiful 



I've also found Cathy has a terrific scent - it's a cream but a little muddy. Beautiful big blooms and weather resistant 

Big Garden Birdwatch 2016

Just submitted mine 

We used to get siskins in the garden round the corner chicky - not seen one here at all.  

The blackies were a thrill today - one at the apple when I went out with the food - and three more sitting in the shrubs next to the fence - all males! The two pairs were in as normal too. Think the cold snowy weather was a bonus today - all the usual suspects were in  - even the goldcrest at the last moment  

Only one missing was the wren but I only see her now and again anyway as they're in the hedges and corners by habit. I suppose you could add woody in that comment box....I should have done that with the wren too 

Mine seem to have three visits too fidget. Eightish when I put new food out, lunchtime when I come home from work for mine, and then mid to late afternoon. I miss that one except on weekends - if I'm here.
