    1. Willows are starting to green now. Just this morning Nigel took photos of weeping willows near the river in Gore because we thought they looked so pretty by the river as we drove by. I asked him to try and get a “By the rivers of Babylon” kind of shot ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! Many years ago we spent our honeymoon in Italy, including Christmas. Very cold but we drank lots of hot chocolate.. never tasted better! Very beautiful and the streets are quiet at that time – even in Venice! We had a week in Venice (a month in Italy in total).

  2. I’m planting daffodils at the moment so this is an incentive to keep going and get it finished. Love the pond photo – what a beautiful garden! ๐Ÿ™‚
