      Yes, lovely here (though absolutely p***ing it down at 6 a.m.) still got a pale blue sky – I am so glad that the days are getting longer, that is the absolute hate I have for winter. I could never live in Scandanavia during the winter. Hoping to get out at the weekend and find some spring flowers perhaps 🙂
