It is almost eleven in the morning and Tess and I have just come back from our morning walk. Contrary to what I expected, there is no sign of frost, the sky is a mottled blue with white puffy clouds and it is quite mild. There is not a breath of wind. I am going shortly to collect W to take her up to my other friend W's and then in her car we shall all three go out to our usual lunch venue. Unfortunately friend C, who usually joins us, has been ill in hospital and although she is now out and on the mend, she is not up to joining us today.
If you read this C - get your strength back up, we shall miss you today.
After I get back home and take Tess for her walk again I will finish off this blog.
Super lunch - we all had salmon with potatoes three ways and plenty of veg. Delicious stuff.
After arriving home and before taking Tess out I had a quick wander round the garden. It has been such a lovely sunny day and the temperature has been five - and with the sun out it really felt like a Spring day - I took a few photos of what is stirring in the garden. It does the old heart good because, of course, it is nowhere near Spring yet.
So here you are - signs of Spring in a North Yorkshire garden:
Feels like a frost tonight.
