Ok - finally been around in daylight - so here are some dissected berries.  I also "had a sniff" - not a strong fragrance, but the vague hint of plum

Morning All

Thats a lot of daffs Steephill

No work for me today, and none til next Weds either .... a mini-hols.  Chicklets still need taking to school though, so alarm went off at usual time.  Might get out in the garden for a bit later - theres plenty of weeds out there that need tackling

Trouble on't trains ..... Means more time to stand admiring the yellow thing in the sky, which has made a welcome appearance here too. Should have brought my factor 50 with me. Enjoy your gardens - those who are free to get out there.

Morning Dove.  Still hoping for the heatwave - visiting HydeHall and Beth Chattos this weekend, and would prefer to leave the snorkelling to Fidget

Lyn - you may regret the daffs late spring, but think of the smiles they will give you early in the season.  Verd - glad you are now superfast.  Like lyn, we are end of the line, rural, etc,etc, due an upgrade about 2022 

London day today - will catch up with you all on the train later.
