First two bits of good news –
- The new photo gallery is now live and you can visit it at www.sparroworks.zenfolio.com
- The Red-bellied Woodpecker visited the garden again this morning as well as the Carolina Wrens, plenty of Redpolls, both varieties of Nuthatch and the rest of the gang. The RBWO checked the feeders but then spent more productive time hacking the unhealthy Catalpa tree.
Last night was the annual volunteers “do” in Chalet Pruche at the Arboretum. This necessitates a walk in the dark through the forest to reach it. Snow was falling and all was nice … except that our friends in the UK are reporting the start of spring, newspapers over there are starting to publish spring gardening articles and we won’t see a tree leaf until the end of April. Winter is good until mid February – then it’s time for a change I think.
Anyway – picture time:
