    1. I thought the farmland photos would interest you, but you can see even where there are crops there is no shortage of forest area. Have a good weekend hugs Diane

  2. The tits are cute. The christmas tree is a nice one. Recycling looks complicated but I guess it saves someone else having to sort.

    1. Thanks Diane. The recycling here is easy. Pretty much everything goes into a yellow bag which is collected every fortnight. The glass has to go to the dump or be put in special containers around the place. Batteries, phones, electrical, etc we either take to the dump where they have special places to be put, or easier still just drop them in the boxes as you walk into the the supermarket, very simple. Have a good weekend t'other Diane.

  3. Hello dear Diane,
    I had a look at your bird photos, indeed you get the tits but you also get sparrows... I never see them or very exceptionally at my feeders.
    I enjoy watching their attitudes toward each other, it helps put my mind off other things.
    Thanks for telling me what species you see in your area, it contributes to get an idea of which species migrate where.
    I hope to get Bramblings, Greenfinches and Siskins if we have a few days of serious cold.
    Keep well, enjoy your day :)

    1. Thanks so much Noushka for your comment. Sparrows we have all year round in very large groups and the odd dunnock, black redstart or chaffinch. We never see the tits in summer or the finches or robin,they just vanish. I really hope things are improving for you and that you can start enjoying life again to some degree. Diane x

  4. What a lovely winter sky Diane! Enjoying the bird photos as always. My take on recycling is that it needs to be easy to entice people to use it and that set up looks too difficult but I suppose that it's at a large shop and so I sort of understand. Do you use yellow bags as we had in Cognac? Here we have a large blue bin and everything for recycling goes in together and is sorted at a recycling centre.

    1. I love the blue winter skies Craig but it is a pretty sure sign of a frost as well! Yes we do have the yellow bags for pretty much everything but glass, batteries, electrical, oil, etc cannot go in them. It is so easy to drop them off in the small containers at the supermarket or the dechetterie. Hope you both have a good weekend Diane

    1. It makes life easy for the things like light bulbs and batteries that we cannot throw into the normal yellow bag used for recycling. Recycling in France is pretty jacked up. Have a good weekend Diane
