Thirsty Plants

I have a lot of plants in pots and have had to start watering them rather early lest they wilt in the warm Winter sunshine.

I'm delighted., especially as I use rainwater collected in various water butts.

Basking in the February Sunshine.

Walking to the shops in the sunshine I felt quite hot, shed my scarf and left my overcoat open.

The daffodils are in full bloom and the cats frolic in the driveway.  It may soon be time to put away my Winter overcoat.

Early Spring ?

I have a daffodil!!

For a week or two daffodil buds have been visible in the garden, but today I noticed a flower fully open.

In my youth daffodils usually didn't flower till April, or sometimes late March. Things are changing !!!

Obsolete ?

A new Telephone directory was delivered today, though for several years it's been called 'The Phone Book' and is much smaller than it used to be. As  I recycled the old one I tried to remember when I last looked up a number in a directory. I couldn't remember but am sure I haven't done so since moving into my present house more than four years ago.
