I had gravel as an anniversary present. Only one tonne though, Really good pressie.

I suggested a raised bed for Christmas but was poo-pooed so am buying one after Christmas as I still need one. That will make 4 beds. Argument against was about mowing grass, argument for was even more veg. We will still have loads of grass for him to mow!

I wondered Siskin as well , but my book says they are geeninsh. Will just have to wait fro them to visit.

I have just looked in my bird book at a bullfinch. It definately isn't that as the wing markings are not that prominant., but had a browse over a couple of pages and I think they may be Linnets. It says the male is brown in winter. I will have to wait until they reappear to see. Of course they may well not be.

We also have nuthatches, very amusing birds, but like you, Jean haven't seen any for a couple of weeks.

Oh has come back with cheap lard so will make a seed cake later.

Morning All

Lovely frosty day. Put washing out , not wise I know but it does get freshenedd up. Topped up bird feeders. OH is at supemarket so have asked him to buy lard. Might be cheaper to make fat blocks for birdys than buying them all the time. Any one done this?

Page 638 is still as wierd as last night!!

Pleased you've lost some boxes Jo Hard luck on gaining some 

We keep a pair of binoculars handy for visiting birds. There is one I really don't know what they are, About the size of a greenfinch but rounder and a lovely soft brown colour, with a finch typ beak. Camera zoom isn't good enough for a photo I've tried. Perhaps Sants will bring me a new camera, or it might be a lilac wheelbarrow.  Will have to wait and see

Will have to cover my convovulus cneorum today. Have been putting it off as it looks so nice.

What's the weather like in your area?

Bright,frosty, beginning to clear where the SUN hits. A real coldness in the air. Just put some washing out. Topped up the bird feeders and sent OH in search of lard. I think it will be cheaper to make my own seed blocks than buying them.
