Well, it might be Good Friday today, but in keeping with all the 58 Easters that I have enjoyed on this planet, on both sides of the Atlantic, the weather has turned grey, cold, windy and there is the threat of more snow so, apart from the fun of taking the car in for a spring service early this morning, the day has been spent indoors watching the activity in the garden.

The ground is still quite hard and very cold but a Robin has spent the entire day hopping back and forth across the lawn pulling out big, fat, juicy worms ….. quite how he manages without breaking them I’m not sure but you can watch him put on weight by the hour.

We also have a pair of Song Sparrows who seem to be thinking about moving in … be nice if they decide to nest hereabouts.
