Around the Spring equinox
Oh joy of joys, SUNSHINE, no wind! OK still a bit chilly but I even managed a walk without a woolly hat!
Dear Button doesn't think much of windy days. Mostly she hibernates too. I love this photo of her with her head in her paws. Yup I can empathise!
But the days ARE getting longer! The picture at the top of this post was taken around 5.30am(ish) when dawn was breaking.
And on a lovely day like today I went Groatie Buckie hunting! Groatie Buckies are tiny cowrie shells and are often viewed as a great prize. It's taken me years to develop the knack to find them. today I found SEVEN! My biggest single haul yet!!
And some yellow shells in memory of my lovely friend Leslye who died back in January. She had bowls full of yellow shells around her home and forbade me to pick any on my beach as they were all supposed to be HERS!
And the daffs (tete-a-tete) are blooming happily now all the snow has gone.
And spring bulbs coming through - tulips I think in this pot!
And the main daff show is getting itself ready with flower buds forming.... Soon time to start clearing away the dead stuff from last year. I always leave it in winter as cover for insects and for birds to rootle through.
