|Sunshine and snow at the Byre|
These three sleepy old hens have just been released from their house and they are well and truly ready for their breakfast of warm mash.
I have no doubt that they will be glad when Spring arrives!
Everywhere looks so much prettier under a blanket of snow.
Even the dormant vegetable garden looks better than it has since harvest.

|I was delighted to see this beautiful Bullfinch in the Blackthorn tree!|
...the only bit which gave her disguise away was her tail! She spent a lot of time out there, pretending to be a tree, watching and waiting for the unwary birds as they came to feed. I am happy to report that she didn't succeed because the canny birds went to the bird feeders in another part of the garden.
When she tired of waiting for a bird stupid enough to be fooled by her antics, she went into the wood and sat on a pole, waiting to pounce on one of the mice which run in and out of the compost heap! I didn't find any headless corpses outside the kitchen door, so I don't think she had any success there either.
