- So that was Christmas and the New Year celebrations done and dusted
now its back to work again but both mornings and evenings are getting lighter.....


- Bright, sunny, cold days; dark, snowy, windy days; days that just don't know what to be
but the first shoots are there, a hint of crocus and snowdrops and 'Wish you were here' programmes.


- In like a lion, out like a lamb, and there are lambs, little balls of white cotton wool cuddling up to Mum
light, green leaves pushing out of cold, bare wood and hard, dead soil, something is stirring.....


- Daffodils blowing in the breeze, greenery and blossom, a Spring sun feeling really warm in sheltered spots
Easter's around here somewhere, time to put away the arctic survival gear and take a break...

Just right for a Ramble then - get your boots on. You know you want to, don't you......
