It's nice to be able to access the yard without having to go out the front and round by the alleys to let oneself in at the back gate. This morning I put seed out for the birds for the first time in a fortnight.
I've seen the robin hopping around. There was a programme on garden birds the other week that told me the robin is short-lived. I suppose this means I'm seeing not the same robin year after year but members of a dynasty of robins.
It's another clear, cold day. The workmen won't get wet.
