Captured earlier today, a furry acrobat nabbing as much as he can from the birds fatballs. Having failed to destroy the replacement seed feeder he/she has resorted to hanging by three toes and ripping through the green plastic nets!
The replacement seed feeder is held onto the branch by a bulldog clip and two medium sized safety pins – I defy the fuzzy critters to work that out!

After a while fiddling with facebook and not managing to add my flickr photys I have managed to add them here! Hooray! See the panel on the left showing my most recently added 4 pics.

For the first time in years I had proper frost on the upstairs windaes. As soon as I was up and moving it began to melt. Then there was a wee pathetic furry of fairy sized snow. At least our hill has been granted grit/salt bin status and a (almost luminous) yellow one has been installed (outstalled)!

Hello mini foodies! my latest creation. They seem to be getting smaller, but the photography is a little better I think.

Ready for winter high tea and sitting on a frilled pale blue doily. Full of currants and cherries, a generous layer of golden marzipan iced with a snowdrift of royal icing. I couldn’t resist cutting myself a slice.
Presented on a wooden board, finished with a wee sprig of holly and a few crumbs left for any passing mousie!

Mooching though my photos I had a closer look at some from last year, sunny and bright, nice hibiscus flower. But viewed full size, which I don’t normally do, I saw the little spheres of pollen. Wow! my camera behaves better than I gave it credit for. …and I’ll have to have a closer look through the archives for any more hidden goodies.

Another nice day and I remembered to toddle to the top of the hill armed with a plastic box. My objective was a gathering of brambles and sure enough the nice big bush I had already photy’d was still covered with good sized fruit. I soon had at least a punnet full and a hand full of scratches/nettle stings and some purple fingers. Later in the day I decided to turn my hand to jam making instead of scoffing the lot in one go. Although not a great jam eater I am still pretty chuffed with the result – only one small pot but that’ll do fine. mmm…. sticky.

Off out wi’ the camera since it was nice ‘n’ sunny this forenoon. I had intended heading for a beautiful garden (didn’t snap as it was being worked on at the time) but got distracted by these on the way. They are connected to my previous post As I Walked Out… since it is more or less the same area just shifted forward four months. Spot the differences?

  1. wonderful wildflower end of the Millenium Field… super
  2. closeup of a cornflower, my first
  3. medium sized gowan – big daisy
  4. the brightest yellow – black eyed susan/rudbekia
  5. fluffy thistle heads
  6. fat glossy rosehips
  7. broom pods ready to pop
  8. popped! (sound backdrop of pops, crackles, buzzing bees and thrumming crickets)
  9. bramble view – taste good too!

I like my outdoors to be full of interest, think this covers it.
