I'm not a tidy gardener, I don't cut back in Autumn but leave the perennials until Spring. What a reward we had this morning - four bullfinches greedily devouring seeds in the front garden.
Yesterday? Four pheasants! Two pairs.
Very pleased to see they have all got partners now. I'll even forgive Mrs. Percy for making me jump out of my skin when I was putting out mealworms earlier today, she was under a shrub on the patio and .......... whooooooooosh, out she shot.. DH wondered who frightened who the most!
Bad weather is a good excuse for hunkering down with some crochet. Those hearts I showed you last time have gone to new homes, to people who needed a little love and another has gone as a birthday gift. Have you made any yet? Be warned, they are seriously addictive.
Have you seen the new magazine? Simply Crochet by the same company as Mollie Makes.
I treated myself to the first issue today. I am so glad I did, lots of patterns to tempt.
Spoilt for choice!
While it is still looking like this outside
I'm looking forward to Spring and all its glorious scents
and stunning colours
Meanwhile, before I choose a pattern from the new magazine, I have a ripple blanket to make for our great grandaughter, due in March. Instead of pink or white, I've decided to go bright.
Hope you are keeping safe and warm.
