Just a quick check in.
Haven't read the last couple of days, so no idea what's going on in your worlds, but I hope all is well.
Grey and drizzle for the last 2 days here, and I don't expect it to change any time soon. Have been doing lots of gardening though; pricking out seedlings, potting on, new plantings, moving things about etc. The Swallows are back! Not sure where they're making their nest yet; hopefully under the car ports like the last 2 years. It was so lovely to see them zooming over the field, from my study window on Friday. Yesterday, there were 4 kestrels squawking about over the garden. Looked like an adult and 3 babes, fab. And whilst clearing out bits of the Pampass Grass, I discovered a nest with 5 eggs, right in the middle of it! Amazing. Will leave them be, and let the Pampass do it's thing for now. Blimey, I feel like Bill Oddie!
Love that transformation piccy above Figrat. Might have to trawl back for the last few pages now.
