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.
