Jam jar flowers

 Not in a jam jar but this Amaryllis is giving some colour to the house.

Hope to see a few next week, we're off to the Brecons for Xmas. We do get the occasional sighting here in Kent and they're definitely spreading closer.

It's 'common' around here.

I would dispute that it's rare for cats to defecate on lawns. I've witnessed it a number of times. They may prefer to leave their ' messages' in bare soil but they don't mind using the grass either! We get regular deposits on our front lawn. 

Greenhouse Monitor

There may be such a thing for commercial greenhouse use. I can't see there being much need for the amateur gardener, generally the greenhouse is close enough to the house for you to see conditions first hand. Remote temperature sensors are numerous but one that encompasses all your requirements would probably come with a hefty price tag, if indeed it exists.

 Lovely wintry scenes on this afternoon walk, perishing cold out of the shelter of the trees though.

Snowing consistently now. Very slushy underfoot on this morning's dog walk. When it freezes later it won't be pleasant on roads or pavements.

 I loved the way that David Shepherd managed to bring his subjects to life. Not only a brilliant wildlife artist, his train and aviation work are superb.
