Getting desperate for some half decent springtime weather now! More snow is forecast though so not going to need the sun tan lotion for some time. Add to this the fact that the Chancellor stood up in the House of Commons today and told us all that the last three years of austerity, cuts and squeeze will go on for at least another four years!!! Funny, he said that in his first budget speech three years ago. Still, he knocked 1 penny off a pint of beer THUMP!! that was a lead balloon going down.
Anyway I thought I would introduce a little colour, we had this crocus and a hyacinth growing in what was a false dawn of spring, the hyacinth is in no fit state to pose for a photograph so here is the crocus that brought a little colour into the extended winter we are experiencing.
