I love the Scottish word "dreich" - it is like it sounds (onomatopoeia) - the weather this week has been miserable, wet, drizzly, cold and windy and miserable. I'm glad I haven't had to go outdoors much. However earlier in the week was a sight to gladden the heart. The delicate flower above bloomed just two days after the 122mph Orkney storm winds of a couple of days before. The buds on the willows below don't seem to have suffered from the storm force winds either. I love signs of Spring (as does Buttons!), even though in Orkney it will be some way to go yet......
