Thaw, Blossoms in the Snow and St Michael’s Mount

02 Mar

The big thaw has started in our part of the UK though the winds have been savage on the South coast. Our boiler is now working; the power cut was mended very quickly and  we are warming up again. Thank you to so many of you for your concern. Being without heat and power surely makes one think about those without a roof over their heads in this bitter winter.

The resilience of the Spring flowers is remarkable. These in our garden are bouncing back.

I have kindly been given permission by the photographer to use his beautiful photo here today.  Thank you, Darren.

    Came here as the direct result of a recommendation from John Zande. Delighted to make the link. I’m a Brit now living in Southern Oregon previously living in the village of Harberton just outside Totnes in South Devon.

      How lovely to meet you and thank you for your kind words. Oregon and Montana are still on my ‘to visit’ list. We are going to Arizona (again, family here) and Colorado, then Atlanta (family) this Autumn, maybe one day we’ll get further North. Totnes is a lovely place too. I don’t know Barberton. 🙂

        I’m the founder of the blog Learning from Dogs and it you have a bit of a wander through those pages you will come across posts about this very lovely part of the world. We moved here, with 12 dogs, in October, 2012. Harberton is just 3 miles away from Totnes. Look forward to getting to know more about your good self.

    Tenacious little spring flowers. They look pretty good, considering what they’ve been through.

    What crazy weather! It’s amazing how the flowers refuse to give up.
