We had our first snow of the year over the weekend. At last I had a use for one of the Roses chocolates tubs that we had consumed over Christmas- a birdbath to supplement the water available to the garden birds. Even with a drop of oil on the surface it froze overnight and I had to break the ice in the morning.
The reed buntings are back! Michele was right (as usual) “they will be back when the weather turns cold!”
