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.
