I already fear for my future veggie garden. The spoor was all over the place.

This was the first snow in the new house. It does look very pretty.

The other plus side to snow (there are no more than two) is that we got lots of birds at the feeders. A new yard bird too. A couple of fieldfares (Turdus pilaris) dropped in for a visit. Sorry, no photos.

The herb garden bed is still waiting to be finished. I planted some thyme and oregano that I still had in pots from the old house. I’m not sure they will get through winter. But we haven’t had any frost yet, so who knows. Herb garden bed

Our new bird feeder needs to be repaired too. It crashed over during Friday’s storm (windforce 9) and bits of the roof came off.

Pity it’s not the best weather to work in the garden.
