.this morning while feeding the chickens I heard the loveliest sound coming from the tree above the pond (think sunken old bath rather than elaborate water feature.) there was a blackbird sitting deep in the tree just above my head. It was singing the usual blackbird dawn chorus song which is unmistakeable but he was singing it so quietly it was like a whisper. I have never heard this before.it was as if he was practicing his song ready for the spring.JUST BEAUTIFUL !
.our power has come back on and we have light heat and tea ! It makes me realise how much we take for granted.
.J makes me laugh so much.She is an odd little person (mean that in the nicest way ) she can mimic voices so well and has a very healthy sense of the ridiculous which should keep her going through life . I am such a lucky Mum with two such characters for daughters!
