Spring?

Yesterday there was a bitterly cold wind, but today the sun is shining and you can just about believe that spring is just around the corner.

Yesterday morning Julienne came round for coffee and after that I went out for lunch with Mum at Zuger's, a lovely cafe in our local block of shops. I had a lovely salmon steak with a mustard sauce, while Mum had an omlette. I went back to Mum's place for more coffee and a chat. In the early evening I went to an information meeting for a camp in Canada which David is going to in August. It is called Rockridge Camp and is in Vancouver and I have to say it does look like a magnificent facility, to say nothing of getting the chance of seeing Vancouver (I'm only a little bit envious).

In between all the other activities I've been reading the revised version of Safe and putting it into PDFs, doing some website bits and pieces, and pleasantly distracing myself with a jigsaw! - all are progressing nicely.

This morning I have been to Coffee Plus and now I've had lunch, and I'm waiting for an Asda order to arrive, shouldn't be too long now.

Glancing out of the window I can see birds enjoying the bird feeder which David resurrected last weekend, indeed there have been a huge variety of birds there this week, blue tits, great tits, long tailed tits, dunnocks, robins and wrens, as well the wood pigeons and magpies and the occasional squirrel.

Finally here is a picture of some primroses I saw in the churchyard on the way to Coffee Plus this morning - a sure sign of spring's imminent arrival - my all time favourite flowers - maybe I'll make them into a spring icon!

Hi
Sometime could you take a photo of a squirrel so I can show Mike.
My first day Supervising at work and tomorrow is my first day at Tec.
Start of a busy year.
I hope summer comes early for you all.

Re: Hi
I will try to get a picture of a squirrel, we see them often, but they tend to run away if you try to catch them on film, but I'll see what I can do.

Hope all goes well at work and Tec, will be thinking of you.

I meant to come back here. These flowers are beautiful. They look like polyanthus. Are they related to petunias?
Just gorgeous, I love that pure colour.

And oh, what you did with Safe, I am over the moon! Thank you so much.

Primroses are wild flowers, the very wild flowers from which polyanthus and primulas were derived, but I prefer the wild version!!!
