I could not resist an hour in the garden, pulling out cleavers mostly. No sign of the winter knocking back the weeds this year, except the bindweed which the birds are already raiding the dried stems for their nests. A chaffinch sat and watched me from a branch of the big pear tree. My pack has arrived in the post for the Great Birdwatch weekend on Jan, 30th and 31st. Such lovely pictures and postcards they send with it so I have been having fun decorating my kitchen walls and the fridge door. The snowdrops are doing well this year up the garden so I may be splitting up again in a few weeks as some of the clumps are huge. The smell from them in the sunshine today was delightful.
