We have a bird feeder each, set up in trees outside our "office" windows. James' healthy seed mix was quite popular, until I got ... a peanut feeder. It seems that like Westerners, birds prefer fatty food to healthy food. This is a coal tit getting its beak full.

Sorry for the lack of pickturs. As James suggests, a slow intertube is a big disincentive, but also, most of the photos I have been taking recently are quick snaps of the inside and outside of other peoples' houses, which one can hardly then go and put on flickr. We realise now that we have always previously cheated the housing problem by having the constraint of living within a 35-45 minute tandem bicycle ride of work. Now the home is the workplace, the problem is unconstrained! However, James has decided that we should settle close to Settle. Hopefully this is a sufficient constraint to make the housing problem tractable.
Meanwhile, Amadeus, the Amaryllis which the Mother In Law gave me for Christmas, has flowered. Dad is mightily impressed and says he has never seen anything like it. Neither have I, except, of course, at the mansion of the green fingered Mother In Law.
