I stopped at the garden centre on the way home for essentials and these deer were grazing in the field behind. this is my zoom on maximum. it was nice to see them, and the garden centre was very quiet. . .no gardening today!

I got brave today and purchased two tomato plants, 2 cucumber, and an alyssium (sp.? - it's purple and small).

My husband gets to plant them. I am the kiss of death.

I'll let you know if I ever see the first tomato.

Your deer look a bit different to ours. Nice to see them, isn't it? As long as they're not in the road...or our gardens ;)
Was snow a nice change from the rain? We had a beautiful, sunshiny day, before the sleet, snow and rain descend on us again.

Lilymarlene, think thats all the snow!
Tara, I think they are roe deer, theres several kinds in scotland. waiting impatiently here too!
Dora, the snow didn't lie yesterday, about and inch or so and then it melted. no gardening here either.
Gary, it was nice to see them, haven't seen any for a long time.
Kerri, well the snow melted, and now its cold and rain is forecast. . .doom and gloom.
