I know why they call it spring

Aside from all the buds on the trees and other flora & fauna springing forth, it is also called spring because that's what you need on the bottom of your boots to keep up!  Lots going on here, just a quick note to say we have not forgotten about our blog; we've just been keeping calm and carrying on.

Here's a few photographs to ease the distance between posts;

 It is almost Easter, so very fitting to collect eggs in an easter basket!
