This blog has experienced a not unusual pre-election hiatus, followed by a not unusual election result. A more self-aware chap than your bloggist might conclude that his input wasn't adding a great deal of value. I must also take the blame for the terrible weather. Two weeks ago I bought a pressure washer and it has rained every day since.

However, spring is here, rain or no rain. The young blackbird above flew headlong into the glass of my study window and then sat on the windowsill glaring at me as if it was my fault. Eventually his mother lured him back to the nest with a beakful of meal worms. Given that I had provided the food in the first place, I rather think the youngster could have looked less resentful.
