    My plan is to clear more snow. Got car access cleared yesterday and another inch of snow has fallen overnight. No karate or football for Steven. Starting to go a bit stir crazy now. Still could be worse. We have heat, food and water.

    Think it's safe to say my wallflowers are dead. :(

    On a plus side though I have 12 goldfinches in the garden.

    Our feeders are heaving but as soon as I put out hot water it freezes and its still snowing!

    We have about 25 greenfinches and 3-4 chaffs no golds at the moment, we had a redwing on the feeders first thing not had one of those in the garden before.

    Big Big snow for the first time rather than ice now.

    I made some fat blocks yesterday using beef suet, beef dripping and lard. So far the beef dripping one seems the most popular. May go into business soon. :D

    Can't get the niger seed out fast enough for the golds at the moment.

    We've had around 8 inches overnight and it's snowing again now. Our hot water system is being replaced today after breaking down completely so that is proving to be a total disruption to the day. The plumber's assistant had to leave his car and walk over the fields with his toolbox to get here, bless him!! So, tons to do here, but can't do much as we have no hot water for cleaning and clothes washing. A bit of packing will be done instead.

    On the plus side, we have a roaring log fire going! And we also have tons of lovely hungry birds here!
