|Muddy waters. View from my back garden.|
Now I'm sitting in my lounge surrounded by the opulent scent of three stalks of narcissus plucked from the garden, and the primulas are out there, bowed down by raindrops, but putting on a colourful show. The orchids, camelias and daphne are actually almost over and now it's the time for the magnolias and fruit blossoms which are starting to bloom in gardens all over the town. It was almost unnecessary to light the fire last night. Gracious! I think winter must nearly be over, and it seems like it only just began.
