  1. This weather is absolutely mad! Touch wood, we haven't had any snow yet. You got me thinking yesterday about homeopathy and I have booked an appointment now with a local one. Thanks for the idea xxxx

    1. Absolutely weird weather we are having just lately Fran. Good for you going to a Homeopath; at least he/she will not be attempting to push any filthy drugs into your body!

  2. Amazing transformation - as you say that is definitely a sign that spring is trying hard to get a foothold.

    1. Aye' Pat, We can feel or get a sense of Spring in the air and very welcome it is too.

  3. Poor little birds they must be very hungry as this weather is seriously affecting their feeding routine. No sign of our herring gulls yet, they should have been back together by now and protecting their nesting territory.
    Amazing difference in the weather from one minute to the next.

  4. Every season in a day at the moment. Can't wait for my vegetable plot to dry out and do some digging and spreading barrows of cow manure. When the Robins perch on my four prong pike and shovel and help themselves to the juicy red worms. Great pictures!

    1. Hi Dave! Four seasons in a day - that's Ireland for you and more so the further north you go. When I lived in Bangor Co. Down it was the norm rather than the exception.
      Robins are the friendliest of birds I think. Mrs H feeds the birds every morning by scattering moist couscous around the place and a Robin follows her around chirping away as she goes from one area to another.

  5. I really feel for the birds in this awful weather...it must be so difficult to find enough food naturally.
    If only everyone could find it in their hearts to feed them every day of winter...:)

    1. Yes you are correct Ygraine, though perhaps for some people it is an expense that they are unable able to stretch too.
