12th March 2018

The rain keeps falling. Driving home along flooded roads. The daffodils by the front hedge are still tightly closed.
This year: Falling rain and I cannot see the daffodils.

This time last year it felt like spring. The air was soft and heavy with warmth, although the nights were frosted with stars and ice. A blackbird filled that tree with music... and mum was still alive

1st March 2018

There is nothing remotely romantic about these driven, windblown, tiny needles of ice,

but I cannot escape their beauty or the assurance of life they give.
