Re: Different birds that have visited our place

Just the fact that you're mentioning all the different kinds makes me think you do have an appreciation. I'm sure you would notice and miss them if they weren't there :-D You're lucky to have that amount of wildlife...we have counted 4-5 different kinds of birds that we see daily, in our garden.

Re: At least it isn't raining - but it is still so cold

Max temperature here in the North East forecast to be 14C and then 8C, 7C and 8C for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Yes, max temperature, not overnight minimum. Still too cold for most things in the garden I think. Let's hope we get a fantastically hot June, July and August Things seem to be growing ...
