We all thought spring had sprung and it has but you might have been forgiven for wondering this weekend. Last Friday the temperature here was 26º and this weekend it is 6º! However the warmth of last week has brought all the spring flowers out. This is my favourite narcissus, variety unknown as we inherited it. It smells lovely too.
Those of you who follow this blog will realise that I have a son, daughter in law and two little grandchildren in Melbourne Australia. Those of you who listen to the Nick Coffer show will know I got back from a visit on October 25th. It was so lovely to spend time with the children and so hard to leave but strangely nice to get home. The flights are just interminable but a good time for getting stuck into a good book. Weather in Melbourne in Spring is much like here in spring but warmer. This little fellow was in the Wildlife Sanctuary in Healesville. We had a great day there.
Off to Wales tomorrow to cook for a landscape photography course for a week. Good fun and in a lovely part of the UK.
This is such a beautiful time of year. I couldn’t resist this photo when walking in the woods yesterday. I just love the beech trees at this time of year, looking as if the sun was hitting them whether it is or not.
