First day of Spring not promising

It’s cold and gloomy and the forecast for the week ahead is even worse, with hail and thunderstorms.  The eclipse yesterday was a bit of a damp squib here – we didn’t see a thing for the cloud cover.   It’s being so cheerful that keeps me going!

As a postscript to last week’s six-worder, here’s what the thoughtless off-roaders left behind them:

  1. The plant with the round leaves in your photo is called Pennywort and you can eat the leaves. They have an interesting texture, slightly spongy and they taste quite fresh. We had them as a decorative edible garnish at a restaurant some time ago.

    Still blanketed under the apparently indefatigable white here, V. Spring? Only on the calendar.

    I know exactly how you feel, Viv. It’s been such a stop/start week here. It was damp and cloudy yesterday until after the eclipse, when the sun miraculously put in an appearance. Yet just down the coast at Whitby some friends celebrating their 44th wedding anniversary said it was fantastic. (at first, I thought they meant the cooked breakfast 🙂 ) Grey and squally today so I’m posting pretty images again. Onwards and upwards! 🙂

    Every cloud has a silver lining – we have had a good week. The sun came out now and again when I was helping with an Archaeology survey on Wednesday; Thursday was glorious so I took the opportunity to help with some riverbank willow maintenance work; spotted the first daffodil out in the garden; saw my first curlew north of Hadrian’s Wall and the sun came out just before the eclipse and I got to see it curtesy of a neighbours science tutor who arrived early with an astronomical telescope. Hope you get the sunshine next week and the winds send our ospreys home safely. Love Sally

    A good grumble on a Saturday morning never hurts. It’s raining here too this morning – luckily it’s not me that takes the dogs out at weekends.
