This pic of the swans and ducks on their frozen pond was taken at 7 a.m. yesterday in Victoria Park, Bath. Only had my phone camera which, as you can see, isn't the quality of my digital one. But I think this shot succeeds in showing how cold and misty it was.
I'm fed up with all this makes it so gloomy everywhere. To cheer myself up I did a bit of gardening. Cleared the raised veg beds ready to plant out onions and rest of garlic. Neighbour's cat and one of ours sat watching but were thwarted in their efforts to "christian" the newly turned soil as I'd covered the whole lot up with ENVIROMESH...marvellous stuff which is deer-proof so definitely helps make it a no-poo-zone for the moggies.
A reminder that our competition ends at midnight tomorrow...please see blog listed on 28th December.
Marcus is still sneezing and wheezing but is up and about today.....nothing to do with my sister calling round with Christmas presents!


  1. G'day from Oz, Su. So I guess you went about 10 or 12 miles south of WSM to that particular lighthouse and Burnham castle. Ironic that the tide looks out, but in Queensland I'm surrounded by floods.
    Best of the Season to you and Marcus.

  2. Thanks Terry..hope you've got your water wings!
