  • Just cutting my grass.

    That's it. December 20th; cutting the damn grass!

    I was thinking along similar lines this morning. Crazy.
    On Friday I went to prune a hornbeam. Couldn't do it, there was a pigeon sitting on two eggs. Never had nesting birds in December before.

      Bought some heathers the other week to fill some pots through the winter. Trouble is the geraniums, osteospernums, begonias, lobelia are still going strong.

        Ditto! Mad or what? Mowed Saturday and Sunday afternoon. Hoping to finish this afternoon before it rains.
        Annoyed in one way, because it takes ages to do and I was glad four weeks ago thinking 'That's it for the year.'

        But I'm pleased it's woken up my arm, back and leg muscles again. Feels like Spring.

            Fuchsia bacillaris flowering in my garden at the moment.

              I'm sure there are people who are glad that it's unseasonably warm and damp. I'm not among them. There's something very profound about winter. The plants dying down, trees slowing down, the earth seeming to slow down I suppose. It's all still too busy for me. Creature of habit I suppose. I miss the crunchy "deep and crisp and even", night time walks under the clear skies. I like the cold on my (face) cheeks, and getting home and lighting a fire. This year it's just bland. Hope it's a temporary blip.
              Having said that, your Fuschia is rather special SK. I've got primroses out. I know it can't be wrong, it's nature, it just doesn't feel "right".

                Faint aroma of cigars and weed in the air?

                      A goldfinch briefly visited the garden today - lovely red face mask and bright yellow bits on the wings. Never seen one in the garden before. According to the RSPB site they usually migrate for winter. He went before I could grab my camera

                        Where do curlews normally habituate, moorland? Reason I ask is there was an injured one in Leeds City centre this morning cowering in a shop doorway. Very strange.

                          Curlews are waders so they are normally on the coast but I've seen them way land in the Dales on flooded farmland so it was probably drawn into Leeds by the floods I guess. From the air a lot of the city would have looked like a river delta.

                            Get yourself some niger seed and a feeder. They'll find it. We used to have a gang of them....until the sparrowhawk got wise to it So site it accordingly if you do.
