Above is a photo taken a few days ago of  Ann's blackbird. She has been feeding him mealworms  all winter, so he should be in good fettle for raising more families come spring (which , come  to think  of it, is already  here).

Above is the latest snapshot of Ann's Nuremberg(type) kitchen. It's now getting a  bit crowded. As  you've probably guessed, we've had Ruth  and one  of  her girls staying  all week, and  today Ruth is again showing me how to subdue this machine and making it return to its duties.
So... here goes.

The kitchen is looking wonderful! Not sure that there's much sign of spring outside though, winter seems to keep coming back, even though the birds are singing. Love to you and Ann xx

Ann says- thank you Zoe. It took us about thirty years, after we'd bought and restored the kitchen, to furnish it. great fun though, and very satisfying. We've both always been a bit afraid of overcrowding it, so I think we'll now apply our own rule for our house, that if we decide to keep an item of stock in the home, then something else has to go- to make room for the better bit. Seems to work, but we have to be fairly strong minded about it.
