Monday 21st January 2008
And it rains and rains and rains. And then we have a ten minute sunny spell. And then the wind blows and blows. And it rains and rains. And the wind howls and howls. And then overnight it was frosty! And it is January. And despite all that the flowers are out... including the Forsythia, Even though I grabbed a space between the downpours my photos cannot do them justice because of the wind. As I am forever mentioning we never used to have Daffodils out in January before the earth started warming up. It was also a good year when the Snowdrops were out before the end of January but they are all out in the front, even if they are covering their faces.
Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages. I am a happily married man in my late sixties who lives on the Wirral peninsula, near Liverpool, in the UK.
I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.
