I`m on constant guard Jackie at this time of the year, trouble is the cats are my own, little beggars.
Easter was a disappointment after all the lovely days we'd had in March but at least if it was dry then it was good compared to some of our days at home, pleased you enjoyed it, I like Llandudno did you go up the Great Orme?......

I hope the birds will be all right, but that's how cats are made.
Weather's gone very chilly here aswell. I hope it warms up soon.

Hi Jackie ...
Good luck for the baby blackbirds. In my neighbourhood, even more than cats, the magpies seem to be a major threat to eggs and nestlings ... It's a wonder that any small birds survive to maturity !

Glad you enjoyed the Easter break, despite the cold. Let's hope your potatoes grow well this year :o)
