Froggie Luvin!

As I went to hang out the washing today, I disturbed, what looked like, a considerable number of frogs in the pond! The water was bubbling with ‘activity’ although these two hadn’t yet made it into the water!

The first of the spawn was laid a week a go on Valentines Day (same time as in 2007), so it’s looking hopeful for lots of tadpoles again this year!

Winter Garden

We've had a weekend break away, the last before 'Baby Digger' arrives, with a friend in Bedfordshire. Knowing how much I like gardening and being rather 'physically challenged' with a huge bump, the National Trust Anglesea Abbey was a great choice for somewhere to visit on a cold, crisp, sunny winters day.

It featured on a gardening programme recently, where they were washing the algae from the silver birch trees! It did look stunning!

Only four weeks to go until our precious seedling is due. HWDD is rather apprehensive that it will be born under the gooseberry bush on the allotment!
