Wet! Wet! Wet! and Bruises!

This is not about the group, its to do with my garden...............



this is down by the chickens, I have never ever seen it this bad in the 19 years we have lived here!! This is one of the reasons we need to move the chicken run.



Heres Tangos favourite place come rain or shine and look what I nearly trod on as I was going down the garden to the chickens....



I think there is a strong possibility that we may have frog spawn before 10th March!!
So I have taken off the fine mesh net which protects the pond from all the fallen leaves, but have left the bigger mesh to hopefully protect the fish from the heron!



I hadn't realised how dark it was down there until I saw the photo, this was at about 08.20 this morning!!!

Bruises!!!
I am covered in them, I think when I was in the theatre they must have grabbed me by my shoulders and tops of my arms and spun me round, then decided to try it from the other end and hold me by my knees and hips and do the same thing! I know I am not a light weight, but I am at least 2 stone lighter than when I had my op in October I didn't have any bruises then!!!!!!

Shucks...saw the title and thought I was going to see a pic of Marti!
Not seen a frog here yet; probably there's a few lurking about. Must keep my eyes open

Good idea to move the chickens. I don't think swimming is their strong suit!

I wonder if we will have a water shortage this summer!

I can't believe how wet it is. I have not lifted Captain Ruperts cover today becuase its so yucky and I thought he would be dryer with it on. I would love a pond with frogspawn thats so exciting. Your airing cunboard reminded of my soon to be airing cubbaord and what a great idea to get seeds started. Glad your op went well. You mentioned before an instruction sheet for the rayburn I'm sure that would be really helpful if you could email it to me, that would be so kind.
