It snowed.....there's a blizzard out there and I have to get to Glasgow! Aaaaargh. Very tempting to put the kettle on and hunker down in the studio but I have to go.

This may be the smallest water garden in the northern hemisphere but froggie loves it.

Today should be sunny and the daffodils should be out. In reality it is raining and the daffodils are staying closed. This is a wee reminder to them that they should open soon.

The Bees

Over at a friends farm the bees are beginning to stir. After the long winter there is just enough heat in the middle of the day to tempt the bees out into the fresh air. What they do now is give the hive a really good clean. It's been a few months since they have ventured out so the hive is a bit messy. A few days of cleaning and the hive will be refreshed and the bees ready for Spring.
