Up until the last week or so, when it suddenly got a bit nippy, it has, certainly in much of the UK, majority of the leaves, have now fallen that are gonna fall. Insane storms have raged in the north of the UK, and that insanity of shopping has hit our TV screens, and shop windows with glorified supermarket adverts in the Strictly Sell More Stuff Competition, abusing penguins, TV personalities, musicians,and the like.

I digress.. We have Tadpoles in the pond. In almost mid December. Its a very strange end to the year. Its a leaf filled, partly anyway, very froggy friendly pond under the shelter of a tree, so maybe warm enough for them to survive. I hope so.. But tadpoles in December!!
