The wrens were back in the garden (both of them) and one was brave enough to come up to the heated bird batch on the deck.

In other news, another food highlight was a gorgeous, onctueuse tarte aux citron for last night’s dinner to help ease the goose down.  we didn’t get pictures of the goose because we were too eager to start eating it but the tarte required a more leisurely moment.

Very cold outside – log fire going great guns.  Huge snow storm forecast for tomorrow so we plan to stay in and eat and drink and read e-books.  Not a bad life.
