A brilliant start to the 2022 thread, Happy New Year, and lovely pictures of the Sprawk in the Sprawk Hide.
The old thread was very good and I've no doubt this will be just as good, so looking forward to seeing this years piccies as the seasons come and go.

Lovely new thread, Linda, and like others, I will be looking in here now and then to see your visitors and your advances in garden development. Went to close the drapes about an hour ago and it was snowing here, huge fluffy flakes. The flakes were melting on landing on the already wet drive from the earlier light rain, but there is still a light blanket on the lawn. 3C here just now. Hope the snow stays overnight and only melts in the morning, a bit like in Camelot if you know the original 1960 Broadway version of the musical with Richard Burton and Julie Andrews. No?! (Yes, I know, most of you are not old enough to know it!) When the family finally got the album I played it to death and could have sung every song from memory.
Kind regards, Ann
Woke up mega early this morning...(6:45)...yeah ano nearly the day gone for you PB and Mike ;-)
And I opened the blinds to ..... winter!!!! Ahhhhh!!!
My poor trees....poor bamboo!!!
And poor BB
After coffee and a couple of choccie biccies...
Was starting to get lighter
RRB was waiting patiently for his scattering
As was Mrs BB
Was time to go out and feed the birds and shake a few trees as you do in your PJ'S lol
So after filling up the feeders and shaking the snow off the bamboo and bay trees, I turned to walk back to the house and WOW I look up and see about 50-70 Redwing fly over..no camera, no phone...I just smiled and thought you little buggars but thanks for the flyby!! ;-)
So after a much needed cuppa finally a could feel my fingers again and was time to take some pics
Did someone say breakfast is served
A few hours later and we have sunshine..(no cursing PB ;-)
Oh a lovely Redwing came back to visit...only 1 though!
The sun is blinding lol
Can you tell I was at the window most of the day and done very little work....I shall give myself a telling off lol
Well the snow will be gone tomorrow so I had to make the most of the piccie opportunities today.
Hope you all enjoyed
