Lovely sunny start again but, like Busy, our farmer neighbours, horsey neighbours and we too are wishing it would rain. OH has even said we shouldn't cut the grass again till it has.
Got home from dancing last night to crisp, clear, starry skies and some bird trilling in the trees after midnight. Any ideas? Sounded like a blackbird on steroids. Owls hooting too but the frogs have gone quiet.
No tits of any kind on our feeders lately which is odd as I always had the parents stuffing themsleves to get the energy to go and forage for juicy insects for their chicks. We're just getting sparrows late in the afternoon. Not even chaffinches at the mo.
Need to do a minor raid on the SM ad then I can go and play in the hosta bed. OH wants to discuss plans for the potager!
FG - hope you catch up on some Zs later. LG - enjoy the freedom. It can be blissful.
Pat - I have a cupboard full of very tasty jams,jellies and chutneys made from our produce but what we seem to eat most is lime pickle and mango chutney for which I have to buy the ingredients. Doh!
Happy St Georges day if you're English. I told OH and he said we should get out the Union Jack!!! Apart from anything else we don't have one.......... Took him a while and a good stare before he twigged.
