More snowdrops than raindrops

Today’s guest picture is another much needed dose of sunshine, this time from Derby. My brother Andrew saw an inviting bench, but he tells me that as soon as he sat on it, the sun went in. We had another day of persistent rain here but it stayed reasonable warm and the wind wasn’t asContinue reading “More snowdrops than raindrops”
