Well, well,well...

It is not easy being a Liverpool fan sometimes. They lost on Saturday despite better chances, most of the play etc, to arch-rivals Manchester Utd, 0-1 in extra time! But if you support a club, you support them even on a bad day. West Ham fans have my sympathies though; they seem doomed now.

I can at least enjoy some lovely spring weather now. Nature is bursting out of its winter coat and the birds are getting very busy in our garden. I am not an ornithologist but it is quite nice to sit looking through the patio glass doors and watch all the bird activity. They come to feed right outside the doors so I feel a bit like Bill Oddie or David Attenborough on telly. Our regular garden visitors are great tits, blue tits, robins, long-tailed tits, crested tits, greenfinches, nuthatches, tree creepers, green woodpeckers, spotted woodpeckers, blackbirds, magpies, jays, various warblers, chaffinches, and I am sure I have missed some others. But the greatest entertainment is the squirrels playfully chasing each other up and down and around the thick tree trunks. It is like peekaboo on speed!

Leave you with a few flowers from yesterday.
