Well today my prayers were answered. The clouds parted and the sun came out. Brilliant blue skies and so what if its turned colder, this lunchtime I wrapped up warm, got myself a cup of tea and stood in the carpark at work, much to the amusement of passing colleagues; I stood back against a tall stone wall and just had 10 minutes of sunshine on my face. It felt good. It felt very good. So I took these 2 poor quality photos with my blackberry as a record of the feeling that spring is just nudging it's nose out the door and wondering whether to come out. Certainly in the last week snowdrops and daffodils have begun to push through.
We've a long way to go until spring proper arrives of course, but today, I'm a happy man.... all is right with the world when the sun shines.
