Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. Hope you're both well. We're both fine and full of busy. We're busy in the garden, so the decorating has had to take a back seat. We'll get there. :) We got the Silver Birch cut down, and it's made a lot of difference. There are lots of trees behind our garden, but they're not too close so ...

Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. I hope you and hubby are having a good Easter, and haven't eaten too many Easter eggs. :) Hasn't the weather been lovely? We've been gardening, there's lots of weeds, but we have lots of trees and shrubs. There are three Magnolias. One is a Star Magnolia, white with double flowers. The flow...

Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. Hope you and hubs and Mr. Puss are doing well. We're settling into our new home. Hubby is settling in better than I am, but I'll get there. We were in our last house for twenty years which is a long time. We're getting some jobs done. We knew we needed a new gas boiler, sooner rather than l...

Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. I hope you and hubs are well. I bet you thought I'd left the country. :lol: We've had a very busy few weeks moving house. We've thought about it for a long time, but we've done it at last. We have a small garden, but it's lovely. We can't wait until the weather picks up and we can get out t...

Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. I hope you're all well. I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday in Wales, despite the boiling hot weather. I'm not a lover of the heat either. I can picture you both bubbling away in the jacuzzi. It's lovely today, sunny but quite cool. It's been cold the last few days, our heating has been comin...

Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. Hope you're both well and enjoying the lovely weather. I've had a chest infection, but I'm getting over it now. It's a bit too hot for me. A frost would be lovely. :lol: The lawns are scorched, and we're watering the bedding plants and pots every day. There's still no sign of Cuddles, I'm n...

Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. I hope you and Mr. Will are well. It's a busy time of year, the garden's running away with us as it always does about now. It sounds like you're busy too. There's lots of colour in the garden. Have you bought your bedding plants yet? We haven't. We usually wait until the end of May. Pirate'...

Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. We're both fine thanks. Pleased you're doing great. :) It's mild and bright today, a big improvement on all the wind and rain. The Azaleas got battered before they had chance to flower properly. We've been doing a bit of tidying in the garden this afternoon. Hubby has been scraping the moss...

Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. It's been a lot warmer today thank goodness. The snow has gone now, but we've had a lot. One of our neighbours has been a few times with his shovel and cleared our drive. It's very kind of him. He must be looking after his elderly neighbours. :lol: We don't feel elderly, but I suppose we ar...

Re: Is This a Partridge?

Hi Will. We're fine thanks. I hope you, hubby and Rudey are ok. :) We identified the bird. It's a Willow Ptarmigan, from the grouse family. It had very distinctive dark markings on it's wings, and a distinctive call. It sounded like 'come back'. It's gone now thank goodness, it was making an awful n...

Is This a Partridge?

We have had this bird in the garden for a few days. Does anyone know what it is please. We think it might be a Partridge.

It's not a very good photo, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks. :)

Re: Hints of Autumn colour

Hi Will. The wind was terrible the other night. I was amazed anything was still standing the following morning. I only got about two hours sleep. Hubby slept through it, and I felt like waking him up. :lol: I always worry about the roof too. It's a lovely pink handbag. I know you don't like handbags...

Re: Hints of Autumn colour

Hi Will. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!! We don't buy for each other for Christmas, we just get what we fancy as and when. If we're out and we see a picture or something that we like then we buy it. Then when we get home we wonder where we're going to put it. :lol: I got a lovely handbag and tasties from our ...

Re: Hints of Autumn colour

Hi Will. I'm so pleased you had a magical time at CP. The time would fly over, it always goes fast when you don't want it to. :) We had a lovely Christmas too. Our grandchildren's faces on Christmas Day were a picture. It was lovely to spend the day with them. You were lucky that it didn't rain. We ...
