No chance to do the lawn after all. Pulled back the curtains to see it'd rained again in the night &, by the time was on route to local shops, down it came again! At least OH wont now get fined for late library books!
Have treated myself to a coffee at M&S & just had a choc pot for my daily treat. So not as grumpy now.
Tis our wedding anniversary today. OH had forgotten, but i'd put his card into his rucksac so he was suitably humble. Apparently I forgot our first- but have no memory of that- & have not been allowed to forget that.
The squirrel-proof cage isnt! Ok it did say small ones could get inside- yes! But as I went round doning thick gloves to try & sort things out, the squirrel got scared & wriggled itself out. Phew, wonder if it'll stop further attempts? Am quite glad that hadnt got a un-openable caged feeder- at least this one can be opened, but wasnt looking forward to trying with squirrel inside!! Think vaseline on the bracket is the next thing. The birds are using the feeder again, but dont tend to perch on the bracket.
Was pleased to see that we have blackcaps visiting the berries on the Amelanchier- a first to my knowledge in this garden. J.
