February already – Spring not far away?
I have a gift for stating the obvious! This morning I slept in until eight am, and only woke because it was LIGHT through the slats in the blind. I can remember a February in Normandy when we ate in the garden, but I don’t think that will be happening this year – it’s still cold, wet and windy with rare blinks of sunshine.
Usually by now the roadside banks are starred with primroses, but their cheerful faces are still in hiding. At least we’re not flooded like swathes of England or frozen solid like huge tracts of North America, nor roasting in the Southern hemisphere. We have much to make us thankful.
