I mentioned about the icicles growing off the neighbour's van. Well - here they are. They have now disappeared, along with the remains of the snow.
What I didn't mention the other day was our daffodils. When we were working on our back garden Susan planted about 70 bulbs, These have been coming up over the last couple of weeks, and we should have a good show in our proto-lawn. In the snow the daffodils were particularly brave.
Now the snow has all gone we can see that we are in the running to have a lot of daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses and tulips, and a fair covering of lawn. Soon we will be buying topsoil and levelling the whole garden, giving us a Gazon Anglais and making us incredibly trendy.
