As if the weather wasn't bad enough, I have yet to assess the winter damage from our four-legged neighbours.
They've blatantly left tracks all over the back garden and one of the small evergreens is showing distinct signs of emaciation.Still, they're taking care to keep out of sight. Not like the other winter, when we caught them red-hooved, loitering on the porch,
sauntering nonchalantly through the garden, as though the last thing they were thinking of doing was catching a bite from that bush..
not to mention pilfering from the bird feeder.
Part of me rather misses seeing them....
