Well nothing covered here
The daffodils , pussy willow are making a comeback, slowly, step by step
And they so remind me of me and Albert
We too are making a come back slowly
We are so tired, no longer able to to say all will be fine
But the rats have returned to the pond
They will survive and I guess so will we
They are family, and we have a magnificent family that surround us
Tonight we made pancakes
Well Albert did
I never make pancakes
There are many things I never do, he does which is possibly why we have survived 55 years of marraige

Spring has been sprung a while here in Spain. The Almond blossom, coating the hills for miles around, is a joy to behold. Wild flowers are out in abundance. The farmers are hard at work pruning the vines and tying them in.
When at home I find Spring very frustrating It flatters and then recedes. I am so impatient for summer that I almost wish Spring would not happen and that I could wake up one day to summer!
Saw a flock of grue today flying in the V formation, this is regarded as a sign that summer is approaching here in SW France as it was chucking it down in the tail end of Storm Dennis.
For those reaching for the French - English translation, grue = cranes - I had to look it up when told this at an autoroute service station.
Apricots in full bloom, as are the plums and Mirabelles, the scent is incredible, I wish I could bottle it and export - it would make a fortune, much better than those stench canisters they call "air fresheners".
Our Apricot tree is full of bloom, just waiting to see if the Fig tree will flower, nothing on it yet.
All the Camellias have flowered but they have lost their blooms in the windy weather. Snowdrops, Daffs in abundance and in the greenhouse my Toms, peppers, Chillies, Cues, Courgettes, Squash etc. are all through waiting to be thinned out or potted on.
Roll on Spring.

Our pussy willow is out too Jan
Not yet the leaves but the velvet balls ,tęte-ŕ-tęte are flowering , and I have a large bowl of hyacinths just coming up to bloom, brought them inside today
Snowdrops are rubbish, just don’t seem able to get them to flower the following year even when planted in the “green “
Soon be fully Spring
