That looks like next years xmas card, fairygirl.
It started to go white last night. We have a couple of inches settled, but I dont think it will last, it is very wet.
Keep warm and safe, folks.
I see Ginger is off to see Quidam by cirque du soleil. I saw this in London. If you think they are good on telly, they are brilliant in the flesh. We've seen a couple in London,and two in Nottingham and they are brilliant. You think " no, they cant possibly do that".. and then they do.
Fat balls are balls of suet mixed with seed. We have special feeders to put them in, We also get square blocks of the same stuff that go in square feeders.
I think hedges in gardens are a throwback to hedges in fields. They are markers of the edge of a property. Hedges within gardens make rooms in the manner of Vita Sackville West at Sissinghurst. Each room in a large garden can have a different theme. In many gardens the hedges are there for shelter. A hedge will filter wind and there is a more benevolent micro climate than an open field. A wall or fence that is solid does not do this,instead eddies and vortices are set up which can be more damaging than the wind on its own.
I dont disagree with you about statins, Edd.....unless you have familial cholesterolaemia.. no way would I take them.
Its nearer to 22f here.
I'm snuggled under a duvet.(doonah)
I hope you feel a bit better today, Pat
I've PM'd you Edd.
Rest Edd. Drink plenty of fluids (water based)
