Last night on the eve of our last five precious days here, I realized that I didn't want to waste any of those moments tapping away on my laptop. It's so easy to be "here" but not fully present to the people I am with.
So here are just a few photographs taken last week while walking the village on a blustery, showery day! I know that people who take time to read here ( and whom I appreciate so much) will understand and agree that this is how it should be.
Don't miss the pink blossom on the tree in one photo below. Even in the chilly weather it was heartening to see such early signs of spring here, along with some snowdrops in bloom and many crocuses shyly unfurling their buds.
