Morning! Too much fizz last night - sore head this morning!

It's still white over but only thin. Photos for you Star...

 Isn't it weird - no where near warm enough for the thermals one minute, then snow the next.  Good for the garden?

Two inches and still rising....! 

The snow's settling well too - ooooh matron!!

...but we're tucked up scoffing cheese and supping fizz!

it's white-over in Notts - anyone else got it settling? 

Seasons Greetings

We only have the very tips showing in our garden Betsy2. At the local market yesterday the flower stall was selling bunches which are the first I've seen. Wonder if they were grown in the uk.

Gardeners who love their feline friends

I'm loving the names that we give our cats. My sister's is called Cloughie after Brian Clough as her husband is a Nottingham Forest fan. Mum and dad are the proud owners of Tinky-woooo!

I tend to give everything a name. We've got our annual visit from Plucky and Ploppy at the moment; two very rotund pheasants. Then there's Ricardo and Ralph; two very friendly robins that greet us most mornings whilst waiting for their breakfast. There's also Nevil the newt who resides in the compost bin and Oliver the owl who does a lot of twit twit tawwoooooing!
