We had Sunshine today,it was very cold though. Most of the snow and ice has gone now. I beleive it may return but what the heck i got all my shed locks up to scratch anyway. Bird feeders were empty again, and i think we have inherited the entire Robin population of England. 6lbs of seed in 2 and half weeks, blimey if i could whistle i would join them. On the gardening front Greenhouse looks empty but primed for big plans in spring. Mail mostley Gardening books so its getting very exciting. Want to grow from seed more this year . Take care all Tony

You are lucky getting all those robins, Tony, we only get one and then its mate in the spring. They are usually terratorial birds and don't like other robins intruding. One year another robin turned up and the resident one turned on it until it actually killed it. That was so sad! So you're growing more this year, and I'm growing less! I am disappointed really , but with having such a long holiday this year, I can't expect my gardening friend to look after everything! I'll be looking forward to seeing what you grow this time! Perhaps you should start to sell your plants to pay for all that bird seed! Hahaa!

Hi Rose Did,nt know Robins were terratorial birds but that explains the many squables we see at times. The snow yesterday has put many of our birds in the tree,s to keep warm. G lad i put roof on my main feeder as it managed to deflect the downfall which was very bad. We lost SKY tv signal also but its ok now. With a little luck i hope to grow more from seed this yearRose. If i can get my neice to return my new camera i will put my acheivments on goy. take care Rose. Tony
