Yes, do. In fact, go one further and buy her some nice woofer holders for Valentine's Day! 👍🏼🤗

Curiously lacking in thorns, I'd like a close up of the leaves as I think you might have stumbled on something strange.

I agree! It's way too early for hawthorn? We don't usually see it until April.....x

My Chinese elm are just coming into leaf and that's in the south of Spain.  I'm puzzled! (commonplace occurrence)

Had the big white slung over my shoulder.

Admittedly the leaf shape does look similar to Crataegus monogyna, even if it isn't, it is still an earlier than normal sign of spring.

The actual branches look very Hawthorny but the leaves .....I mean it could be....but I watch for hawthorn every year and have since I was an egg (just hatched), and late March is the earliest I've seen it.....but.....who knows? It's been an incredibly mild winter. X

Won't keep you in suspenders anymore.  It's a Walk or Wisp of Snipe.  Think I prefer the Wisp of Snipe.  Got a nice sound to it.

I was always told that it's "a walk", which sounds weird.

My father used to use all sorts of words that baffled me, he'd call a thrush a throstle, which I thought was something to do with the woollen industry, and he always called them "a walk of snipe", I'm with you, I prefer "wisp" or "whisp".  Apparently they are good eating, though the source of that wasn't my father, he barely ate meat apart from pork pies and haslet.

I think a cuddle of soulies is nice but thats as long as it's women cuddling me. 🤗

I've actually watched the space shuttle through it and forgot to press the button to take a photograph.  🤔🤣. It was quick though.

Not taken by me, but well worth a share as it's probably the nicest photo of a Bedlington that I've ever seen.  1489351714_Bedlingtonprofile.thumb.jpg.37d2a2f122094d82c61ac1665ece235b.jpg

One of the original game birds Dave so I'm led to believe.  You would have to be bloody quick though

I used to go bush beating as a teenager to supplement my habits and have only ever seen one shot.  I'm sure there's a dead one in a famous painting, though by whom I have no idea as I'm a little gin fogged at the moment

I had a walk around my local patch today. aahh, almost like Spring 😀. Here's a few pics I took. All I have is a Canon compact digital that cost a couple of hundred quid, but you can still get some nice pictures if you get out and about and have a go .

That little stone chat is cute!  You wonder who thinks up these names? "Stone chat".  Must talk to pebbles? Or be on a Rolling Stones forum?
