2 The Primroses have been going all through this mild (but extremely wet) winter.

I love Primroses

I love Primroses

3 The more I hear of what our short-sighted government considers the right way to look after our land, the more I want to make them think in the ways of the Native Americans.

      I meant the original North Americans, the Native Americans, of course! Thank you for your comment that helped me get it right.
      Yes, a very long way to go and with Owen Patterson in charge, the way gets longer every time he opens his mouth. 😦

      It was a real delight to get up from my sick-bed to find the snowdrops. A real tonic! I feel pretty good tonight. Glad you are better too. 🙂
