Every extra degree of mildness has given the snowdrops a boost and even though none of the buds have fully opened some are getting close, with new contenders bursting through almost every day and requiring regular inspections. Today, though, I had planned to inspect birds instead and had just donned my Bird Watcher’s hat ready to start an hour’s tally for the Big Garden Birdwatch when the pleasant morning, without so much as a by your leave, turned its back and brought rain, hail, thunder and lightning to the garden and the birds sensibly stopped at home. The Golfer, however, was on the roof with his Roofing hat, insisting the storm wasn’t overhead – but quickly rejoined me in the kitchen at the next flash of lightning. Abandoning the birdwatch, I put on my Chef’s hat and made a lemon flavoured Victoria sandwich (yum yum) and filled it with some of the lemon curd I made earlier in the week – double yum yum!
