Lastest Post - Springtime
May 4, 2015

Nature stirs from its Winter sleep in late March and you know it’s arrived when the daffodils start to dance in the

breeze and the lambs start appearing in the field.

Gardners dig over their vegetable plots and visits to Garden Centres become more frequent looking for seed potatoes, bedding plants and hanging baskets.

And when the sun starts to really show its warm face, walks in T shirts and shorts start to be seen, although the temperature has reached 20c, which is sub tropical in these parts.

Evening drinkers lurk outside the pub with their pints and glasses and observe the magnificence of the evening sky changing from bright blue to deep blue and then dotted with sparkling stars backed by an inky blanket.

Magnolias, rhodedendrons,  and cherry blossom come and go within a few weeks and soon it’ll be Summer with the prospect of many sunny days with hopefully no rain or grey skies, but who knows…..so enjoy it while it lasts!
