Well it has been cold, snow and sleet flutters down but the garden survives. Walking into a North-East wind is not good, but soon the weather will change, it is just English weather after all.
Blossoms bloom everywhere, the hawthorn buds are teasing with their flowers. The birds in the garden flock for food in this cold weather, pigeons by the dozen, the jackdaws, a favourite of mine. Then there are the little sparrows, robins and finches.
