'Little snow - big snow, big snow - little snow'  is what the First Nations (North American Indians) apparently say. I'm sure you can work that one out.  

Get your snow shovel handy

Morning all. Brisk here. Temp seemed to be about 2 below when I fed the birds but there was more snow overnight. Hopefully it will thaw a bit. 

I can feel the heat from here Fritillary ...oh no's my central heating keeping me cosy. Huzzah! 

Chicky - my GC will be selling Easter eggs before they think about seeds...

There's nothing like a golden glow on your willows Dove

Gorgeous pic 

Oo7 () I made a large 'sacrificial' fat feeder to try and tempt the starlings and magpies away from the other food and it seems to be working quite well. They go to it first and it lets the other birds get a chance with th  food on the ground. I melted some lard, stirred in the food I normally use, and poured it into one of those fat ball holders which I'd wrapped in foil, after someone here suggested it. It makes a nice big lardy cylinder

Haven't looked on this thread for a while felt I had to send cheers to Matty. You must be relieved and glad all has gone well 

Big hugs to you Lily. Life is so random sometimes that it's hard to understand why things happen to people who often don't seem to deserve it. I hope your Aunt continues to improve. I'm sure being home, surrounded by her own things and in normality will help get rid of the fears.

Have a good time Panda - don't eat too much bamboo. Curry here too - not for me though, just daughters 

Hope you returned their colds to them and told 'em to keep them Yvie 

Roads aren't good round here. Quite a bit of snow lying so hope they get those gritters out tonight.

Lovely pix here again. Must take a look back a few pages and catch up on them 

Repotting Lilly?

Dunnocks are quite bold.... and apparently very promiscuous W'song   

You'll probably have lots of wrens tucked away in your garden - you've got lots of lovely planting for them to hide in.
