Wild weather fluctuations but a change is in the air. Hopefully the last of the snow in the coldest Winter for a decade. The Sun has some warmth to it at last + the light is stretching into corners of the cottage that have been consistently gloomy. Clouds like paintings reflected in puddles + more puddles. The boiler has broken again so the houseplants are huddled together, but I think one or two have cold damage. Snowdrops covered in snow decorate woodland in swathes — halted by the cold snap for a time. This week the first signs of Spring are emerging + colourful crocuses are starting to appear. Woke early Tuesday to a tequila sunrise. Feeling my Welsh roots noticing the first daffodils on the roadside — my doorstep plantings are on the cusp of blooming, I think in a week or so.
