cute pic Lynda :D

 

our girls have been out most of the day while DH made a start on extending the run. Was windy but the wind didn't have that chill on it. You can feel the sap rising :D

Steady now! :lol:

 

You should see what the budgie has started doing to his swing! :shock: I had to do a google as I wasn't sure if he had an itch, turns out he does, but not the sort I thought he had! :oops:

:lol::lol::lol:

 

I'm glad I wasn't sipping my morning cuppa when I read that! :shock:

 

I haven't seen any lambs, but East Anglia isn't exactly sheep country! I did spot a stray crocus on the lawn the other day though, when I was letting the girls out for a morning stroll. And the daffs in the front garden have had yellow buds for about a fortnight :)

Although birdsong is a lovely sound there is one noisy bird who has just taken to standing on the roof/gutter right out side my open bedroom window at silly o'clock to chirrup his little heart out!

 

Isn't it great now it's starting to get light at 7am! No more waitning at the bus stop to go to work in the dark anymore- in the dark it makes seeing the bus number soooo hard, even more when it's raining. Everyone at the bus stop has to confer what the bus number is before some brave soul puts a hand out to stop it.

 

It's so dark there once I tried to catch a skip lorry

:oops:

We''ve had lambs in the fields for a while now, it's lovely to see :D The snow drops are popping up, some are strugling to make it through builders rubble and compacted ground from the extention :(

 

I had a lovely tub of tiny daffs outside the backdoor, and found 2 of the chooks sitting in there yesterday after having a good scratch around :roll:

Our Snowdrops have been out for about a week now,which means I am on 'snowdrop patrol' again :roll:

There is a big patch of them over the road from my house & I can see them from my office.

Trouble is,locals like to pick them, & I think thats wrong :evil:

Adults on a country walk are as bad as the children,although the childen scare more easily when I shout at them :lol:

They were planted by the chap who lived here many,many years ago (He had too many in the garden), & I feel a bit protective about them.

 

My garden is full of them too & I just adore them :P

I planted some snowdrop bulbs last year- so far I've not seen one.

I think the chicken's pottering about in the borders has something to do with it :roll:

a bit like Karen's daffodils :lol:

 

but the crocus and daffodil bulbs I planted at the same time are showing up.

 

I read somewhere that it's easier to plant snowdrops from plants rather than bulbs- it's proving true in my case.

 

I love these seasonal threads :D

No daffys yet up here but loads of white heads shifting in the wind and I also planted snowdrops across the road from where we stay on the verge and daffs as its nice to see but no-one picks them as we are in the country

 

So are we, but we get a lot of walkers going to the local pub a mile away & ramblers too.

It drives me mad that they pick 'my' wild flowers :roll:

Is that a Spring thing particularly in budgies? :?:lol:

 

Our rhubarb is now growing after I emptied some compost on it last week.

I had a lovely sit in the chicken pen on Saturday while all 3 chickens sunbathed, about a metre away from me. Little Megan was resting her head on the fluffy bum of Abbie as a pillow, and burying her head under her feathers like she was hiding under a duvet. :lol:

Of course I didn't have a camera :roll: and they didn't recreate it apart from Katy who will sunbathe at any opportunity, and a brief sit down from the other two.

Katy and Megan....
