Sorry for the delay with new blog but had no electricity nor landline, hence internet - reason below.
Sometimes at this time of year when all is dreary and dark something happens to raise the spirits. Yesterday I looked out of our bedroom dormer and on the roof six feet away were two elegant grey wagtails and today I held a blue tit that had flown into the kitchen. Then I looked out of the window and we have snowdrops emerging from the soil.
There were thinking how mild the weather was when we had a storm and all these cherry leaves ended up on the ground. Then it rained.
