Back Awheel

 It is good to be back on the bike again...mind you the weather helps!

We have been doing the 15 mile, about 25km round trip to Mauchline...four times so far!!

Saturday was too busy for bike, sorting more firewood and moving three carloads of garden pots from our neighbour's late uncle's garden. The people inheriting the house were going to put them all in a rubbish skip.

 We will make up two big pots with the best plants for her which she will be able to see from her front window, and renovate his garden bench, which was also deemed to be rubbish.

We managed a donder round the lanes this afternoon on our bikes after Pirate built woodshed number two. Now it is ready for filling, and a small stack of wood is by the sawbench waiting....

We saw an interesting moth this afternoon...I think it was a moth...

Hmm, doesn't look like a familiar beastie.

I agree with your comment .... mind you the weather helps!
There has been a couple of sublime days recently and walking and working the garden has been an absolute pleasure.
You've been busy and I like the plans for the pots and bench.

It looks like an Early Thorn Moth - though normally they rest with wings upward

Or maybe - indeed more likely- a Herald Moth which overwinters in barns and sheds

I just googled 'moth identification'. Could it be a Bordered Straw?

Good to hear the weather is improving also saving the pots.

Probably a moth. They rest with their wings open, like that.

I can only be excited because every day our driveway gets wider as the ice melts of the sides.

Lovely to see that you are getting some better weather. We are socked in with rain for the next few day which is so much better than snow!
You will have a very nice pile of wood when all is done.

You are a good re-user of things and foods!

Speaking of pots, I'm eagerly awaiting the day your kiln fires up...

Bravo at rescuing the pots and the bench. That IS an interesting moth. I'm surprised it's warm enough up there to have moths flying around!

You have it, Bike Shed...a Herald Moth fresh from hibernating
