Last day of February, today we were set to visit friends who required some help with their garden. However flurrys of snow yesterday have been replaced with a complete white out. Result everyones garden looks fantastic, covered in three inches of snow. Tonight we are set for sub zero temperatures. Don’t forget the garden birds in this terrible weather, fill up the feeders, and also make sure to fill the bird bath. We saw a strange thing the other day,a male siskin sitting on a tree branch with its head tucked in, suddenly fell to the ground. I took it into the house, no sign of any injury, it died about an hour later, very unusual thing to witness.All spring tasks are of course on hold at the moment.
