The feeders were busy this morning , Robins, blue tits, Woodpecker looking for nuts and even a Magpie.

I hurried out well not that quick and filled them up. Took  to  back room  window a watched them all. The ground is hard and the wind chill is blasting.

A quick dog walk as she held her tail low down behind her, and even Lucy the Lurcher couldn’t wait to get back in, Ha.

Next week is looking to be very cold indeed .

It’s February and the amount of people I’ve heard saying ” oh I’m glad January has passed by” . People’s  moods are so low this time of year, and dearly hoping and looking forward to Spring.

It’s lovely to see the Snowdrops peeping through the hard soil and covered in a dusting of snow.

Valentines Day brings a light relief for some Romantic’s . Shop windows are brightened up with a color splash of red.

 Holiday’s for two, Or short breaks.  and red Roses adorn the florist shop window’s .

I once saw a young man carrying a large bunch of Roses through town, I thought that was really lovely.

Time for coffee as I’m off to the kitchen to try my hand at baking a cake. Not much luck in the past with these, more of a savoury baker., pies and curries etc. I have a tub of fresh whipping cream and some Strawberry jam., for the filling. Fingers crossed it turns out well this time.

Enjoy your Sunday stay warm and safe.

    Hi Sheila, started a reply to this on my tablet, but the silly thing keeps asking for my WP password, whcih I can’t remember. So here I am on the trusty lappie. We had a snowfall during the night, and woke to a fine covering, then it started snowing just as I was going out with the dogs, it didn’t last though and now it’s all gone, but still very cold. The birds are always looking for food and as soon as I’ve fed Zak’n’Ruby that’s the next job, before I even dress ! never mind it’s tough going and makes you wonder how they managed before people started feeding the, [I’m talking birds here] well nice to see you still have a go at blogging, good for you, you’ve got more faith then I have LOL, Well you and Lucy keep warm, I’m over to FB now to see whatsado, Bye for now hugs to both just to warm you up.
