Bird survey again –

Sparrows never left all year ~

Nor indeed have I.

Sorting through old toys –

Finding leaking batteries ~

Science, please sort that.

Deeds, words, art, garden –

Pottering, safely, at home ~


Put food out for birds –

Seems to be eaten quickly ~

Then I spot squirrel.

Back garden patrol –

Feeling the cold in my bones ~

Last of the flowers.

Piles of newspapers –

Do get through them in the end ~

Keep the odd clipping.

Restricting movements –

Waiting for her test results ~

Hope it’s just a cough.

Fleecing my tree fern –

Touch of frost in the night air ~

Let battle commence.

Winter game menu –

Venison, mallard, pheasant ~

All of which tastes young.

My daughter’s paintings –

Fluid Art takes time to dry ~

Keep away kitties!
