A friend posted at the weekend that it was snowing at our old house in Belgium. The wind here has swung more to the north which means the front of the house - south - is lovely and warm now. I've been out watering treasures and putting rusty obelisks on enthusiastic clematis waiting for permanent homes in the ground. Frost expected Wednesday and Thursday so I'm been moving things about too to give some protection.
OH has been manfully digging away the edge of the grass where it has grown over the drive in teh last few years. Hard labour and we're going to need to edge it somehow.
Cosmos has been rolling in the fine grey gravel chippings that make up the drive and is no longer white. Minstrel has been patrolling her territory for insects and small mammals. The neighbour tells me she will also find grass snakes. Cosmos hasn't a clue about hunting bu does love to chew cardboard boxes and leave confetti all over the floor for him to kill later.
