Not gardening

Flowering in the garden now: Mahonia (does it ever stop?), Lonicera fragrantissima, heathers (yuk!), snowdrops, hellebores, primroses (bless!), crocus (what the mice leave us), pulmonarias just starting. Not in the garden now: me. It is TOO COLD. 
We have a fox who has a regular route through the garden. I often see him trotting purposefully along and sometimes we look at each other. Today I caught a glimpse of him through the window and his gaze was not as bold as usual. As he loped off I noticed he was on three legs. Oh dear. I am no great lover of foxes but I hate to think of him suffering.
