The Magpie nest from last spring is still on top of the birch! I wonder if they’re going to dismantle it like their previous nest last year again that was in the nearby Maple tree.

The trees on the North side of the backyard look amazing even in the winter.

Balcony Flowers 2017 #1


During a brief gap in today’s heavy storms I noticed a colourful spot on the balcony – some Hyacinth bulbs I had forgotten in a flowerbox had started to sprout! I rescued them and put them in a proper flowerpot. And while I took them inside to rescue them from the crazy weather, they still count as Balcony Flowers, so this post marks the beginning of another year of this series :-).

This photo is from February 11th and nine days later it’s 10°C with constant rain!
