About time

Finally! What a beautiful afternoon. After a horrendous Saturday, of driving rain, wind and cold, and a miserable start to today, the end of the day was lovely; we seem almost to have skipped the spring-that-wasn’t and ended up with … Continue reading

Easter

This is the view that greeted me on Easter Sunday: But I’m not going to complain about the weather because I do it all the time – and today, this afternoon in particular, was much more like it :-) And … Continue reading
