5th - 8th Feb. 04

Weather has gone mad. Freezing cold with snow last week. Very mild weather pouring rain this week. Today it's bright sunshine but cold.
The recent warmth means that everything is growing like mad.

Peaches and Nectarines (can never remember which is which) out in flower in the greenhouse. Given to us by John and Val many years ago.
Mahonia The daffodils are just coming out. Look at the floods by the river Wey.
I wondered lonely as a cloud...
Have just read wonderful story about how when William Wordsworth returned from a walk on our beloved fells, he told his wife Dorothy  "I wondered lonely as a cow..." She had to correct him!
The wild cherries are out on the lower slopes
Heliborus Witch hazel
View over the belvedere to the flooded River Wey valley
Elizabeth gave me a THIRD sheep for my birthday...almost a flock now. I've put floodlights on them..they look like ghosts at night!
My friend the robin...looking for worms wherever I dig!
