 Carys came to visit.   I wrote about her last year.   A premature baby, she had a rough start, but is fine now.
 Old decking has been replaced.    It is great to be able to walk to greenhouse without skating :)    I shall landscape in the Spring.
 Mr P assembled a sentry shed.    As you can see the solitary bees now have a new home.   Units dotted around the garden allowed woodpeckers etc to pull them apart...........they should be able to overwinter safely now.
 I have not done a great deal in the garden.    The weather has been bitterly cold.
 Storm Angus took most of the leaves from the trees and heavy rain filled empty ponds and ditches.
 I always clear the leaves but this year decided to leave them.
 It is amazing how they slowly disappear.
Moorhen and a Heron are frequent visitors.     Sadly the heron did not get the breakfast he came for.    The pond is frozen over.    I have so many fish it would be good for him to take some, to keep the pond healthy.
Better luck next time maybe.

It is the Christmas fayre in the village tomorrow, I am looking forward to mulled wine and mince pies :)

Have a good weekend.
