At last the weather has improved. It's very cold, but it's so wonderful to see the sun! This is an off-topic shot -- this week's theme was H is for Historic -- but the gloom has really got to me this week and other than doing the essentials, I've felt very lethargic. But today was bright and sunny, though very cold, but I'd rather that than the endless gloom.
There are a few signs of spring. My elderly friend had some daffodils on her kitchen table, which were from a local garden. The birds are starting to twitter in the mornings, the collared doves were courting in the tall tree at the bottom of the neighbour's garden earlier, and I think I heard a thrush singing at twilight.
Well, something was singing and I think it was a thrush, but my bird knowledge is far from reliable.
