The Coming of Spring

I rather like that slightly melancholy look that the landscape has in winter. Here's a lake called Nigel (yes, really) near Roanhead, Barrow-in-Furness, last weekend - - looking all moody and wintry and atmospheric.

And it's only a few weeks since Frosty was standing guard outside the old greenhouse:

Now both Frosty and the greenhouse are gone.

Goodbye, Winter - - it's time for Spring. Here are some coltsfoot I found last weekend in the sand dunes:

And look, I found sunshine too. I'm hoping for more of it, to give a warm welcome to Silverback, who is currently about to fly back from the heat of Florida to a chilly March Britain.

Welcome back, Silverback - - and bring the sunshine with you!

I tried but they removed it at Miami security screening - along with my toothpaste !

It was 3C when I arrived in Leeds 2 hrs ago and already I'm missing sunny Buttonwood Bay.
