It's been a while since my last garden updates
I'm happy to report, there have been activities -
Daffodil leaves have been spotted spearing outward from the ground,
birds are making a lot more cheerful noises
and the branches are lined with knobbly buds...
But on a sad note, we lost two of our lady ducks
They were taken, presumably by foxes last Thursday evening
It was unfortunate indeed.
They would constantly follow me around the pond
- much to the annoyance of Lolita -
breaking the silence of the countryside with their incessant quacking.
They will be missed.
This year's winter has been pretty mild so far.
The winter flowering plants in the garden
have been flowering earlier than normal.
They give interest to the otherwise dull days
