I’ve been happily plotting this week on Monday, Tuesday, yesterday and today thanks to the dry sunny weather, although it has been breezy and cool at times.
Today I decided that I would dig out the compost binIt wasn’t long before I was joined by two delightful little friends who constantly distracted me whilst I was doing it!They were here, there and everywhere and I guess that the job took twice as long as it should have done as I keep waiting whilst they helped themselves to lots of juicy morsels
The top foot or so hadn’t rotted down into crumbly black earth so that stayed in the bin to start it off again this year whilst the rest I barrowed over to the area where I’ll be planting my potatoes.
I’m glad that it’s a job I only have a do once a year but it’s one that I look forward to for the black earth and red breasts!
Today I learned that male robins have a U shaped brown forehead whilst females are V shaped. You can see the difference in the the pair above, and that the female is slightly smaller.
