The weather has been a gift really, no problem deciding what to do for a daily picture. Firstly though, our neighbour’s fence has been wobbling severely whenever it’s been windy here ( a regular occurrence), and a couple of weeks ago he came to ask us if it would be OK for the worky tickets to be on our side of it when they came to replace it. Of course, we said yes and this morning they arrived at 8.30am and the banging woke me up. What was surprising is that they came to do it today, because I also woke up to a winter wonderland. Phil had to go and speak to them to let them know where the bodies are buried, Skye & Storm are next to that fence, as we didn’t want the chaps finding bones and calling the police. Phil said he was surprised to see them and the chap said ‘We’re on a schedule mate, we don’t stop for snow’. They were finished by 3pm and did a cracking job.
Phil and I decided we would venture out as we needed supplies, having run out of milk and alcohol, and so walked to the local shop. I’m still not doing too well with the plague, so it was a bit more of an effort than I thought it would be, but we made it there and back.
My shot of the day though was the first thing I saw on opening the curtains, the sun hitting the top of the trees and everywhere looking like a scene from Frozen.
I’m making no apologies for added extras of ‘my’ Robin 🙂
I am assuming these 2 are a breeding pair, as Robins are well known for being feisty and fighting off any other robin on their territory, but they are both together at the Happy Eater Tree quite often and quite happily.
