    Its so nice and sunny and still in the garden today, yet tomorrow its supposed to be a lot colder with snow. Minnie and I went out for a bit of fresh air, while the boys all snoozed. I took camera with me and was surprised by how many things were budding I just hope Jack frost dont nip them all off and stunt them. The geraniums are all blooming in the conservatory. Soon be time to make new plants from them via cuttings

    I braved the elements and refreshed the baskets with fresh food out for them. How on earth do they survive with their spindly little legs all bare.

    Such wonderful pics, NN. I really think they would make excellent crds... I was worried for the birds too this morning; gave them extra seeds and nuts and corn, defrosted the pondy thing and gave the hens scrambled eggs. Now the rabbits and the hens are all huddled up together in the rabbit hutch!

    Mickey and Minnie braved the elements Sootz decided he preferred his home comforts and hasnt moved off the bed. I clocked Mickey tucked away in the undergrowth. He thought he was invisible if he squeezed his eyes tightly shut

    Wonderful photos as ever NN!

    We have had snow today. Volume wise it wasn't excessive, but there was no grit (I think the wind must've blown it all away!) so the roads were awful. Took 90mins to get home which usually takes 20. Roads are treacherous so am intending to work from home tomorrow. Very stressful driving through it.

    I saw a little wren searching for food when I was in a queue of traffic. Felt so sorry for it, we're frozen with several layers of clothes on so they must really be feeling it. Too close to spring to be having these freezing temperatures.

    Luckily I didnt have to go out and feel sorry for those of you that did, So glad you can work from home Kate, and not suffer that trip again today. G/N had to go to the hospital just to have his eye checked they are very pleased with every thing and hope to do the other in about 12-14 weeks time. He went on the bus and said the main roads were fine our street was awful they never come with salt to do it. Replenished the feeders again today. The birds are straight in the baskets. The squirrel came as well we dont see it that often. It was so hungry poor old thing it didnt want to leave the bird table until every last scrap was eaten. It doesnt bother with the baskets, but the birds love them.

    As forecast, the snowstarted at 2pm and hasn't stopped. Hubby took my car to work. He finishes at 6 and was still in the car park at 6.30. Still not home yet-he only works about 5 miles away. Apparently many of the main roads haven't been treated, though the speed it's coming down it would be a waste of time anyway!

    Thanks for taking care of your birds NN, I wish I had some way of helping them but I don't have a feeder or tree or food for that matter.

    Hideous weather for anybody travelling; I'm glad you could work from home, Kate. My friend's car had frozen locks so she couldn't get to work - she wasn't sorry! She works for the people who make her car, rang them and they said 'O yes, that does tend to happen'! The country they're made in has lots of high snowy mountains; I bet they don't advertise THAT little quirk!
    I put the hens to bed early with a strange mix of hot scrambled egg, grapes, sunflower seeds, grated cheese and a bit of ham. Had to get them in out of the steady snow somehow - soppy birds! Rabbits were sensibly tucked up in the hutch, looking out of the open door. Birds in the garden (and squirrels!) had two large helpings of corn, sunflower seeds and peanuts. We may possibly have the fattest squirrels in England - I reckon they could comfortably hibernate until 2025.

    Beautiful pictures, NN..but then, they always are. Wow! you all sure did get some heavy snow. I hope by now it has all melted away.:face-smile:
    • CommentTimeMar 7th, 2018 10:51pm (Mar 7th 2018)
    My hubby cleared the path on Friday, and again on Saturday. It rained on Sunday and all the snow disappeared ... except for the huge pile of snow on our grass from where he cleared the path, some of which is still there!! Had he not cleared the path we'd never know it's snowed!

    In places there were quite large drifts of it on the verges on the way to Cambridgeshire Wednesday. Ours had soon melted on Friday evening. We got away quite lightly although the wind was the worst bit.

    Last week the electric system failed for the pump on our pond. G/N couldn't find where the fault was so we decided to renew the lot and put a new filter system in as the old box was getting very brittle. It was second hand when we got it and that was well over ten years ago so had done us proud, as we run it all year round. We had to go to B and Q for bits and bobs, jubilee clips and such boring stuff for connecting all the new wiring and tubing. Not exactly my idea of a trip out..... but I go because I know I will find some bargains in the plant and garden area !!! Sure enough I got two biggish Plant pots for £1 each and some plants less than half price that only needed a good tidy up to go in them. Pots of iris, crocus polyanthas (excuse spelling I know its wrong but for the life of me I can not remember how it goes !!)daisies and some spear like grass plants I dont know names of. I also got three nice little tin hanging pots to hook over the rails of the summer house porch. So this afternoon I spent a lovely time in the garden sorting the pots out and having a bit of a tidy around. The sun was beautiful and warm. Its got colder now so thought I would have my coffee and a chat with you. To dull for pictures now as the clouds are rolling in. We are supposed to have snow tomorrow, so Im glad I was able to get out there today.

    Wow, I sure was hoping that your weather had warmed up a bit and the snow was gone for good, but it looks awfully snowy still. Our weather got better for a couple of days, it even got up to 74°F..then the rain and wind came back and I'm freezing my tail off again.:weather_rain:

    It's a cold wind from Russia which caused mayhem, went away and came back,Lynn. Better than polonium, I suppose! It's supposed to get progressively warmer from today.
