Spring has finally arrived.

I haven’t blogged recently due to my laptop having finally given up the ghost and died :-( This is not very good as I have lost almost all photos and all data :-(

In the interim, until I’m back up and running properly, please have a peek at the blooms in my garden.

All photography courtesy of my youngest son.
