Up early this morning to find a clear blue sky and bright sunlight. The bird feeder is casting a long shadow over the snow, but I am hoping that by this evening the shadow will be falling on green grass. It lifts the spirit.
News reports of only two roads blocked this morning, so it may be possible to have an adventure as well as seeking provisions for the table.
Alas, the frog spawn has suffered badly in the pond for a second year. I did however, take some out a couple of weeks ago and pop it in a bucket in the greenhouse. That frogspawn looks OK so far, but I shall need to change the water this afternoon before the little tadpoles break free of their eggs.
