I've been away 'sooth' - couple days to see Grannie, a bit more than a walk (over 700 mile)! I'm happy to report that I have seen a bit of 'spring'! For most folks, you see this season every year. For me, unless I travel down 'sooth' it's often a later start for me, happening late march or early April. Our seasons tend to be a bit more compressed - with a dip into spring briefly before we launch into summer with very long days (hardly dark at all for a lot of it) and we briefly dally with the hint of autumn before launching into gales and trees devoid of their leaves. So this trip has been most welcome. But, I definitely have Spring envy, just like I had autumn envy in October. Best to plan trips at these times of year I think!

Excuse the [previous] lack of photos [edited some in now at home....I need to learn to use my iPad...] - I'm sat in an airport - the only plants in view are in the gardening magazine I've got to read later. Airport travel always sounds so glam, but for us it's like hopping on a bus or a train. Whilst my green concious feels very uncomfortable with the carbon issues, when needing to do a dash 'sooth' it's really the only method. I grow a lot, I'll grow more to help counteract my galavanting.
