Yes it's very foggy here too Marion and cold, I'm hoping too that it will brighten up later because the weather man said Sunday will be the best day  Hopefully, I'm itching to Get in the garden, I cleared twigs and filled the hole in yesterday but took photoessays of that rat hole so I can show pest control, my curly Kale have survived winter and looking healthy

The Horrocks unfortunately didn't have any children and they never did leave a will so the estate went to my Grandad and his brothers.

my neighbor who's loves to feed lots of birds and I mean every bird food, the only problem is she's attracting rats, she said she won't stop feeding the birds.

i did have bird food in my tree but my husband noticed a rat nicking the fat balls from the tree, so I've stopped putting them out, but this week my chive plant disappeared and I've been left with a big smooth hole, so I'm going to fill it today and check my air vent too, ho they are horrible!

Marion your flowers look lovely and big too, it's slightly warmer today and no Jack Frost this morning, had enough of scraping windows this week , went to my mums cousins funeral Tuesday very sad, but met a lot of people afterwards I've never seen, also found out my grandads brother was married to a lady in Bristol surname Horrocks, when they both past away the Estate was sold and the money went to my grandad and brothers , I'm going to try and find out more.

i had a walk around my garden yesterday and to my horror found my chive plant had disappeared and there was just a big hole Leading under my decking! Do rats dig holes that big?

Marion we have had two days too of sunshine but bitterly cold, but I don't mind as long as it's not raining or snowing , I've got some brambles to cut down at the back of our garden, I want to get them done before spring come
