    Daffodils

    Apologies for having two flower Image of the Week’s back to back, but the daffodils are looking quite splendid in the churchyard, that they really do deserve a mention. Most of the daffodils here have planted on graves many years ago. I particularly like the ones that pop up on an unmarked grave. They beautifully represent a precious memory. Image…

    Searching for Spring

    It is very wet and blustery today and Spring still feels a long time in coming. We seem to be craving signs of spring at the moment, in the absence of warmer temperatures and sunshine.

    No comet but a beautiful moon

    One very cold evening earlier this week, we went out into the churchyard comet spotting. Unfortunately we couldn’t see comet panSTARRS even though it was a beautifully clear sky.
