6th Gotcha year!

We are Valentines! But more important than this, we are 6 today!
It's lashing down outside so we haven't been out in the garden birdie watching for long, but we have had some treats...

Here are shots taken of the River Thames this week, having burst its banks

Counting our blessings that our home is on a hill.
