"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Looking forward

Today was great. The dogs and I actually managed reasonable length walks without skidding either on the ice or the mud - a first for a good few days. And while that made a very pleasant change, I couldn't help thinking how lovely it will be when we can go walking again in surroundings that look  more like this...

Bluebells beneath the trees...

Oh for blue skies again...
Or how about some apple blossom?
And of course, this being Wales, the daffodils!
Spring can't come soon enough.


  1. Can't come soon enough, Paul! :)

  2. Walking? If it's like that you need to be skipping not walking - in a gingham dress - singing "Somewhere over the Rainbow". Paddy could be Toto.

  3. I'm with you all the way on this one. Only a few more weeks to wait.

  4. it must be a little cooler up here...... no bluebells or daffs as yet.... but almost!!!

  5. John, I'm just looking forward to seeing them. These are photos from last year.
    YP my gingham dresses are non existent, I'm afraid!
    Cro and Elaine, we are on the final lap now, hopefully.

  6. For a moment, I thought they were current images. Hang in there!
