All the gales & rain of the last week has decimated the snowdrops. The white petals are in tatters. Fortunately the miniature daffodils have come to the fore. Their sunny yellow faces bring cheer to the back garden as the deep purple against the pale gold crocuses do in the front.
My life was cheered also by a card that came in the post at the weekend. It was a get well card, featuring a blue tit at his/her nest box. It was from my former employers. I last worked for them over 25 years ago now. It is nice to know they still think of us from time to time. This is clearly a response to the note I put in our Christmas card to them & equally, from time to time, since then they must have thought of me.
