Well the wind and snow hit this week. Alice’s slide has been blown about, but no major damage done so far. My pots are all tucked into the walls and a lot are heavy with grit, so none over yet.
I had a day working from home to avoid travelling in low visibility.
I’ve kept up my bird feeding efforts. I’ve seen a lot grateful birds back and forth to the feeders, though today seems to be too windy for many. Yesterday the seed feeder was emptied by dinner. Today the bird seed feeders are getting blown around too much, so it is all over the ground. To make up for this I’ve put out more fatballs, suet pellets and flutter butter jar feeders.
The weather has even brought in a fieldfare, which I don’t normally get. Times must be hard for birds.
Alice briefly went out, looked unimpressed and turned around to go back in saying, “bye bye snow”. Even double layered snow suits won’t keep her out with the cold. But she got the experience.
Hopefully Spring might get back on track soon and the shoots will recover.
Today’s folklore Thursday was asking about garden folklore, so here is a random snippet.
