I’m following other bloggers blogs with pure envy. Johannesburg, Florida, Spain – anywhere that the sun shines. Our weather is simply awful and I haven’t set foot in the garden in weeks. Currently we have winds up to 85 miles an hour, according to the weather bureau. My sister, who lives in Florida tells me this is not a storm. It is, according to her, a hurricane. (An hurricane?) In America, anything with winds over 70 m.p.h. is definitely a hurricane. I guess the Brits are terrified of frightening the populace, sending them into a frenzy of evacuation (where could we go I wonder – such a little island) and will continue to play the weather down to keep us all sedated.
Whatever. We continue, with trepidation, to brave falling trees and feed the birds. I am still on my mission to capture every bird that visits and have a few new pics to post. The wrens are delightful but difficult to spot and almost impossible to photograph. Little wretches will not sit still. This isn’t even my photograph – TL managed to snap it when I wasn’t around. But it qualifies for my list as they are customers.
