We are snowed in again this weekend with the seventh big storm of the winter … yes, it is March and yes our friends in Europe are talking merrily about daffodils, primroses and spring lambs but here it’s still winter. It is also very pretty and given that the March alternative is early melt and muck with gradually surfacing dog-poop this is preferable.

Experimental sourdough pizzas tonight.

Meanwhile, some seasonal photographs:

Bobtail the squirrel – he has been around for about three years, sans tail and ought by rights to have fallen out a of a tree or prey to hawk but he keeps going and looks in fine fettle –
