Yesterday we were enjoying the signs of spring

watching the Nuthatch bring in nesting material

20180401-27

to the hole under the eaves, which he had reduced with render to a Nuthatch-sized hole

The frogspawn was starting to develop

20180401-45

vole holes were proliferating

20180401-65

the tomato seeds had germinated

20180401-37

and Ian was developing his poise

We enjoyed the snow on the distant mountains

20180401-35

and were amused by the one little patch remaining locally

The I-escaped-from-a-sparrowhawk-but-only-just Blackbird had been a week in the woodshed living a life of luxury.

Wet, sticky snow with added ice crushed our optimism

Trees that had survived far heavier snow last month succumbed

20180402-10

one hen run was flattened

20180402-21

Our neighbours were not amused either
