A visitor in the night?

The forecast snow didn't arrive but it seems as though we had a visitor last night. Although we haven't seen him, we have been told that Mr Foxy has been seen to pay us a visit and I guess this is proof!

And for those of you who couldn't see the castle through the snow-laden trees yesterday - here's the same view this morning - do you see the castle now? As you can see, the snow is fast disappearing :-(

A big thank you to all those who sent emails, e-cards and posted birthday wishes on Facebook. The postman didn't make it through the snow so it was nice to receive virtual greetings and maybe the mail will make it through tomorrow. We didn't attempt to go out for dinner but ordered in Chinese food instead and watched a movie - very civilised - and of course I stitched the day away!

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Happy belated Birthday, Carol.
    I'd like to see our snow melt as fast as yours.

    We had YOUR snow instead! Would have sent it to you, i mean it was meant for you so you should have had it and not us!! Never mind it was your birthday after all so for this one time only I accept YOUR snow!
    Lots of Love

    I didn't know that they did delivery Chinese in Britain! For some reason, I thought that particular style of fast food (which really isn't very "Chinese" at all) was an American Vice!

    Sounds as if you had a great time!

    P.S. Do you suppose he's a red fox!? I'm just batty for red foxes!

    Lovely pictures Carol, so proof at last!! There's been so much activity in our garden, all the birds are really desperate.
    First to arrive are the little tits, robins and wrens, then the collared doves and pigeons arrive muscling their way in. It's like a scene from Hitchcock's Birds when those big boys drop by :>)
