The long winter

aka the winter of our discontent.

G'day all!

Long time no blog.  It's been a pretty rancid winter here, cold, wet, even quite a few snow days!  And very very grey.

But Spring is now here, or at least the plants assure me that Spring is here - the (cherry) plums are flowering and so are the daffodils.  The crocuses have croaked and the pears are getting ready to flower, along with the tulips.  The stellate magnolias are coming into full bloom.

So nice to see Spring at last.

I've been making stuff all the way through.  DH started a new job and that has been umm interesting, often in the Confucian sense.  We've had a trip to California out of it, a trip that brought almost record amounts of rainfall to those parts (yay us?).  And we aren't mentioning politics but that is hella interesting too.  I have learned a lot about how politics works in the States over the last while.

If the weather continues to improve I might be able to get some outdoors shots of all the thing…
