Welcome to my blog. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll stay and enjoy reading about where I've been and what I've been doing!

I don't mean this to be a replacement for personal emails, but it gives me the chance to put up photos and my scrapbook layouts, so I don't block up your in-boxes, or have to send the same photos and stories to everyone separately!
Thanks, and welcome, to the followers of my blog. I'm very honoured that you enjoy it. Drop me some comments from time to time! It's good to hear what you think about the posts. Come back again soon.

Thanks also to Mary of Mary's Mixes for doing all the work on the blog's heading. You are great, Mary!

Little Spring messengers

Walking along the river up towards the park the other day after the snow began to disappear, I found that the woodlands were beginning to get white with snowdrops.

There were banks of them popping their heads out from amongst the old brown beech leaves from last autumn -

a promise that spring isn't too far away! I mean we're now over half way through February, so any more bad weather we get won't hang around for that long. I expect we'll get the usual lambing storms towards the end of March/ beginning of April, but they'll hopefully not last.

Elsewhere, some variegated ivy took my eye, as it clung to the wall . A few wee snowdrops and some ivy leaves would make an attractive display in an egg cup - or a wine glass!

It was getting darker as I headed back along to Peebles. Looking upriver the sun was gleaming through the trees onto the water, while downstream to the east the silhouettes were beginning to look rather good. Spot the ever-present church tower!
Talk again soon.
