Had a very productive time yesterday moving compost around,sweeping up a few leftover leaves and generally tidying up. Whilst moving some large pots I found an entire family of snails just waiting to wake up in Spring and eat my plants. I collected them all up and put them on the grass, hoping the birds might enjoy. Unfortunately they are now under several inches of snow and I feel quite quilty about sending them to a slow and frosty death.
On a brighter note, passing the pond on the common today I was amazed to see that the two Egyption Geese now have 3 babies. They are tiny little things and surely not prepared for snow. Isn’t 1st February too early for new chicks?
