December Raspberries, so is Greta onto something!

Recommended Posts

Thankfully it's supposed to go cold again tonight - may even freeze !

 

The last week has been bonkers here in central France : Last week I spent half an hour watching a red squirrel bouncing around the treetops building a new drey (I know they don't hibernate as such - but for this guy Spring had definitely arrived )!  Then out in the field on New Year's eve, a Brimstone came fluttering past on the breeze and to cap it all the bloody tick season has started early - out in the woods yesterday, came back in, jumped in the shower and there's one of the buggers on the top of my shoulder - 3rd of January - come on ! 

 

Keeping an eye out for swallows .............. !

Know what you mean.  This arvo is the first one for a while I've managed to work without a beanie on my head; every other day recently the midges have been out and about

Well we currently have semi horizontal hail and sleet bouncing off the windows today in temps of 3 to 5 deg.

But last week and over the weekend it was around 12 to 15 Deg and the birds not unreasonably imagined it was Spring, Lord they were singing their hearts out.

One of my neighbours who seems much more green fingered than myself last year tried these wool slut pellets with some success, obviously not a commercial answer

 

 

 

 

Strange times when when you need pellets to get rid of sluts . I just say " not tonight babe " 😁

 Well the T is very close to the G and at just after 10 pm the bar would have been open for quite a while🤪

 

Either that or you changed my post in the name of sport... which would be just fine 👍
