Fog and Sunshine - Maybe Snow

Lerwick has been shrouded in fog Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Bit of a pain as I intended doing some gardening - did get out and get some done.  The Fuschia bushes are all cut now.  In the end had a fairly lazy weekend oops.

Went to the vets with Snowy on Friday and typical it was a beautiful day in Scalloway. I believe the West and North were lovely on Friday and on Sunday.    Its gorgeous in Lerwick today and yesterday but the forecast is for cold weather and snow.  Spent a couple of hours today forking over my vegetable plot feeding and covering to warm it up.   Tidied up some pots and hocked out the dandelions that are beginning to show their leaves.   Lots of daffodils now in the garden too.

Not sure what is happening on the bird world but they seemed to disappear for a few days wondered if it was the fog or that they were starting to build nests - maybe better food elsewhere - who knows.  I have found out that it is the male Lark that sings in the sky but I keep referring to him as her. The blackbird male is singing beautifully just now and the male sparrows are looking rather splendid.

Snowy got his booster and is in good health.   Been running around in the garden loving the sunshine today.

I have been out walking too in the sunshine - lovely.   Just heard it has been 22.4 degrees in Aboyne, Aberdeenshire, think its been about 14 or 15 here and warm!

 Anemones - Snowy in background
 Daffodils in pots
 A triple headed daffodil in a pot in the house
 A very bare side of the house where I have cut back the fuschia bushes.
 The bumble bee in the garden this afternoon - very sleepy and then flew off.
 Winter onions and garlic
More daffodils.

Finally got tickets for Bill Bailey in May - still not organised trip for Victors Birthday.  Will do soon when we decide what we are doing.   I found a little wooden greehouse/growhouse on the internet so hopefully it will arrive soon and survive the Shetland wind!
