deep and crisp and even

This was our garden on Tuesday. It's not much different now, so I guess there will be no garlic planted yetawhile. There is much bird activity at the feeders, sparrows, starlings, blackbirds, bluetits and great tits - and pigeons, of course - and the cold weather is bringing in chaffinches, goldfinches and yellowhammers. There were five there this morning - I've never seen so many.

We have mostly stayed in the house and so finally the new look website is up. It's a work in progress! There are headings for recipes, but no recipes, and I want to add blog lists to the resources pages, but they will come in time.

We did go for a walk between showers on Monday, and saw bullfinches on the hawthorns, and buzzards over the fields. We turned for home as the sky clouded over, and saw a deer cross the road, leap the fence and disappear into the trees.I wasn't quick enough to photograph it, but I did get this:

The light was fading now, as cloud built up and the sun went down. The city looked wonderful in the snow.

lovely selection of birds to see, specially the yellowhammers, not at all common these days
