    Bean bonanza and the repairs begin!

    Photo-upload-423809?1424708221 Yesterday someone gave me an amazing photograph of the tornado and hail storm that damaged our place last June, taken from a nearby campground.

    Spring in February?

    Photo-upload-423739?1424581904 Today was a Spring day, the sky was clear, the sun was warm; there was a sneaky breeze which cooled things a little.

    The first flower of 2015

    Photo-upload-423909?1424826503 I think this must be a record for an early flower, and it isn't crocuses in Path but a snowdrop. How did that get there?
